Where to Photograph Proposed World Heritage Sites in the UK

The list below are the proposals made by the UK Government (tentative list) that have not yet been adopted. Entries have to first be on the tentative list then can, after at least a year, be proposed for listing, but numeric restrictions apply per country. Some are likely to be included in listings while others won't be selected.

Items marked have location guides in development or a part of sections that are planned to appear shortly.

This listing follows the same pattern in  World Heritage Sites in the UK in that the first column links to an external site, where you can see the definition of the titled area, the second column are hyperlinked to one of our Location Guides with more information on this site and over time more of these will be added.
