The UK is peppered with stunning Unesco World Heritage Sites, and London is no exception. In and around the capital are landmarks of extraordinary beauty and historical significance, which have been recognised and protected by the United Nations.
There are 31 sites alone in the UK, but let’s not get bogged down with all of them; here we’re just interested in those that are easy(ish) to reach from central London. From exemplary Norman architecture to sacred sites over 5,000 years old, here are nine World Heritage Sites you can visit within three hours of London.
