Edinburgh – World Heritage Site

By - Richard - 18th April 2020

April 18th 2020 is World Heritage Day. Edinburgh is credited by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as having two world heritage sites; the New and Old towns (credited as one location) and the Forth bridge.

What does this mean? Well, these parts of Edinburgh are considered to be of, “special cultural or physical significance” and have, “outstanding universal value”.

The UK is eighth in the list of countries around the world with the most number of UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Edinburgh is a location which has provided endless inspiration to artists, writers and architects across generations. It is a city we are proud to call home.
