About National Parks
We protect some of the most beautiful landspaces in England and Wales
Millions of people visit National Parks every year, eager to enjoy their unique qualities, peace and tranquillity. Our Parks are also 'living landscapes', home to diverse communities. National Parks must be conserved for the benefit of all, now and in the future - they are "not ours, but ours to look after".
There are currently thirteen members of the National Parks family in England and Wales. They are the Broads, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Lake District, New Forest, Northumberland, North York Moors, Peak District, South Downs, Yorkshire Dales, Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire Coast and Snowdonia. The Parks cover about 10% of total land area of England and Wales: 9% of England and 20% of Wales.
