The UK National Commission supports the UK’s contribution to UNESCO and brings the benefits of UNESCO to the UK. By raising awareness of the world’s most special places, we encourage more people to discover the UK’s extraordinary culture, nature and heritage.

UNESCO sites in the British Isles include 29 World Heritage Sites, 13 Creative Cities, nine Global Geoparks and seven Biosphere Reserves. They are all shown on this illustrated map, designed by Tom Woolley.

This map was produced by the UK National Commission for UNESCO as part of “Local to Global”, and was made possible by the GREAT Campaign and The National Lottery Heritage Fund, thanks to National Lottery players.
