National Parks

Why are National parks important for UK tourism?

  • They are large areas of rural (countryside) land that has been designated by law where development is limited and planning controlled.
  • The landscape in national parks is often unusual and thought to be worth preserving in its present condition.
  • They are often highland areas with small population numbers.
  • National parks aim to conserve natural and cultural landscapes while allowing access for visitors to enjoy them.
