There are now a total of 630 sites across the globe which are designated as World Heritage Sites. These unique properties and locations are deemed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to be of universal value to humankind, and, therefore, need protection and conservation. Sites with World Heritage Site designation status, which include the Taj Mahal, Grand Canyon and the Tower of London, frequently act as magnets for tourists and are national icons, requiring effective management to ensure their preservation, while allowing access for current generations. This article investigates the process of obtaining World Heritage Site (WHS) status for sites within the United Kingdom and considers its practical implications for the sites and their management. It also gives a brief explanation of the The World Heritage Convention and its role. The potential effects of WHS status are illustrated by short case studies in the final part of the article.
