The UK’s National Parks
Natural beauty in 15 stunning locations
The UK is blessed with 15 stunning National Parks; 10 in England, three in Wales and two in Scotland. They are the UK’s breathing spaces and we adore them all for their own unique beauty.
From the water of the Lake District (above) and the Broads to the mountains of the Cairngorms and Peak District and all the different landscapes between, all of our national parks are protected to ensure their beauty lives on for future generations to enjoy. We have detailed guides and in depth articles to help you learn about the National Parks and plan your own adventures.
We are so lucky to have such diverse National Parks in the UK. Loch Lomond & The Trossachs has water aplenty with a backdrop of stunning mountains; perfect for summer hiking and snow-capped in winter.
Our National Parks are an eclectic mix of people-free wilderness and unique environments where farming and human interaction have directly shaped the landscape, such as the South Downs and The Broads. Some are free from buildings while others are ringed by towns and cities. The picture-postcard town of Tenby is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Who doesn’t like golden sunsets over pristine countryside? Nobody, right! In our National Parks you’ll be spoilt for choice, just make sure you have your camera of choice and you’re almost guaranteed to snap a gem. We love these two of the Broads and The Peak District.
