Bath was voted on to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1987.

The Roman Baths, one of the most important Roman sites north of the Alps, and the neoclassical Palladian buildings of the 18th century including the Pump Room, The Circus, Pulteney Bridge and The Royal Crescent were at the core of the city of Bath's listing as a UNESCO World Heritage City.

The stone circle at Avebury is also on the UNESCO list alongside the more famous Stonehenge farther to the east on Salisbury Plain. Other UNESCO World Heritage sites in the south west of England include Blenheim Palace (1987) and the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape.
