PRLog - Nov. 23, 2010 - Many of the passengers from cruise ships visiting the UK’s South West head straight for the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, according to Destination South West which recognises the pulling power that these sites exert over visitors to the region.

The UK’s South West coastline boasts access to four UNESCO World Heritage Sites - Stonehenge, the City of Bath, The Jurassic Coast and the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape.  Added to these four favourites are The Braunton Burrow Biosphere Reserve near Ilfracombe, the English Riviera Geopark and now, in 2010, the Magna Carta, held at Salisbury Cathedral, which has been added to the new UNESCO UK Memory of the World Register.

These seven UNESCO attractions make ideal excursions from many of the ports along the South West. Mike Reynolds, Chair of Destination South West, said, “We are extremely fortunate that we have seven UNESCO attractions that can all be easily accessed by cruise ship passengers visiting the region. Most of the sites are totally free to visit and provide a fantastic visitor experience showcasing the region - you could say we have the Seven Wonders of the South West all on our doorstep!” For more information visit the Excursion Distance: www.destinationsouthwest.co.uk .

The addition of the Magna Carta to the new UNESCO UK Memory of the World Register will no doubt prove to be of particular interest to the US market, as it is recognised as the founding document of English and future American liberties.  The first inscriptions to the UK Memory of the World Register were announced in July 2010 to highlight documentary heritage which holds cultural significance specific to the UK.

The UK Register helps raise awareness of some of the UK’s exceptional, but lesser-known documentary riches by awarding them with the globally-recognised Memory of the World status.

Destination South West actively promotes the Region to ensure that the South West continues to attract high profile cruise ships to its ports. Partners include ports, local government authorities, tourist attractions, and other organisations with an interest in the cruise industry.
