 Lake District – World Heritage Status

Doesn’t everyone who visits the Lakes, find it to be such a special location? Therefore, after being given World Heritage Status by UNESCO, the Lake District has been truly confirmed as a bucket list adventure for people across the world. The Lake District now joins the Grand Canyon and the Taj Mahal as some of the most special areas to see. At the heart of this beautiful national park is Grasmere, making it such an ideal place to visit.

“Long time in the making”

This has been a “long time in the making” said Steve Ratcliffe, director of sustainable development at the LDNP. UNESCO praised the beauty of the area, and the hard work of local farmers to help keep the landscape preserved.

“It is this exceptional blend which makes our Lake District so spectacularly unique and we are delighted UNESCO has agreed” explained Lord Clarke of Windermere. He added, “A great many people have come together to make this happen and we believe the decision will have long and lasting benefits for the spectacular Lake District landscape, the 18 million visitors we welcome every year and for the people who call the national park their home.”

What is a World Heritage Site?

UNESCO awards this significant title to cultural landmarks that are worthy of preservation in the present and in the future. UNESCO seek a site with cultural, historical or scientific values, and are deemed to be of great international importance.

 

Looks like the Lake District is going to have even more visitors in the coming years. Baldry’s Grasmere are more than happy to help you relax when you come to visit. See you soon!
