World Heritage Sites

England's World Heritage sites, those places of cultural and natural heritage deemed by UNESCO to be of outstanding universal value, are glorious in their range and scope. They include the city of Bath, renowned for its Roman spas and Palladian architecture, Saltaire village built by a 19th-century mill owner for his workers, and Liverpool’s docks, our gateway to the world during the 18th and 19th centuries. Natural wonders among the UNESCO sites in England include the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, while architectural achievements take in Durham Castle and Cathedral. Be prepared to be amazed.
