National Parks Week (22nd – 29th July 2018) is an annual celebration of everything that is unique and wonderful about Britain’s 15 National Parks.
There are 15 National Parks in the UK – 10 in England, three in Wales and two in Scotland. National Parks protect almost 10% of England, 20% of Wales and 8% of Scotland.
The oldest National Park is the Peak District, founded in 1951 due to its impressive gritstone edges, dales, moorland, farmland and caverns famed for the rare Blue John stone.
The Lake District National Park, is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and is part of a special family of iconic places across the planet, such as the Taj Mahal, Machu Picchu, Easter Island and the Great Barrier Reef.
