    Visit #WorldHeritageDay sites near Haven parks

    To celebrate #WorldHeritageDay we thought we’d take a look at some of the incredible World Heritage Sites near Haven parks around the country – and wow are there some treats in store for you!

    Jurassic Coast

    near Weymouth Bay, Littlesea, Seaview and Rockley Park

    We’re lucky to have a number of our parks sitting right on the absolutely stunning Jurassic Coast! Stretching from Dorset to East Devon this wonderful landscape is a must-see if you’re visiting the area. The magnificent Durdle Door arch is one of the most famous sights!

    Canterbury Cathedral

    near Allhallows

    It is the Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican Communion and seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury which means thousands of people visit every year – whether in a religious capacity or just to enjoy its beautiful architecture and the surrounding city of Canterbury.

    City of Bath

    near Doniford Bay and Burnham-on-Sea

    If you want a place truly full of history then it has to be Bath. Founded by the Romans as a thermal spa, Bath then became an important centre of the wool industry in the Middle Ages before transforming into an elegant town with neoclassical Palladian buildings.

    Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape

    near Riviere Sands and Perran Sands

    Cornwall and West Devon were the heartland from which mining technology rapidly spread as it played a massive part in the industrial revolution and this impact continues to be celebrated today. In the early 19th century the region produced two-thirds of the world’s supply of copper.
