Welcome to the National Parks
Britain's breathing spaces
There are 15 members of the National Parks family, beautiful areas of mountains, meadows, moorlands, woods and wetlands.
They are areas of protected countryside that everyone can visit, and where people live, work and shape the landscape.
And each one has an organisation that looks after the landscape and wildlife and helps people enjoy and learn about the area.
