London is one of the few cities in the world that can lay claim to having four UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These four sites tell the story of a global city and its impact on our world.

Decision 43 COM 7B.94 adopted at the 43rd Session of the World Heritage Committee in Baku 2019 strongly advised “the creation of a joint committee to help coordinate the Management of the World Heritage properties in London”.

As a result the Greater London Authority (GLA) has convened meetings of the various UNESCO World Heritage Site coordinators and other stakeholders in order to coordinate management of the World Heritage properties in the city. The meetings include staff from the GLA, Historic England, The UK National Commission for UNESCO, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, VisitBritain and each of the four London World Heritage Sites.

The 2020 National Value for UNESCO to the UK Report & Programme

The National Value Report seeks to capture the economic and wider intangible value of the UK network of UNESCO designations. It finds that the network is adding significant value to our economy and society and recommends how this value can be enhanced.

The National Value of UNESCO Designations to the United Kingdom Report shows how UNESCO is bringing sites, people and communities together, and creating and delivering value for the United Kingdom. It finds that the vibrant network of UNESCO sites in the UK, its Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies are contributing in three main areas: they contribute financial value, they make a rich and creative contribution to the UK’s environment, culture and communities and contribute to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
