We are so lucky to have the Forth Bridge World Heritage site right here in Fife! Find out more about the iconic bridge and it's prestigious status.
To be a World Heritage Site you need to prove you have “Outstanding Universal Value” to all of humanity and meet some very specific criteria as well as be approved by a UNESCO committee. World Heritage status is so prestigious, only 1154 sites worldwide have been awarded the designation including the Pyramids of Giza, The Great Wall of China and Notre Dame. Among these famous and incredible sites is our very own Forth Bridge, which was designated a World Heritage Site in 2015!
Make a day of it and read more about activities around the bridge here.
