Will World Heritage Status bring more tourists to an area some people think is already over-crowded?

No, bringing additional visitors to Cumbria through World Heritage status is not a specific aim. But it is true that being ranked alongside the Grand Canyon and the Taj Mahal is likely to make a wider audience aware of the Lake District’s cultural landscape. It is more probable that World Heritage Status will be useful in attracting higher spending, longer staying national and international tourists
