Cairngorms National Park also wins as the largest National Park in the UK. It has a total of 1.1 million acres or 4,528 sq km/1,748 sq miles. Lake District National Park is the second-largest, with just about half of Cairngorms’ size.
Starting in 1951, England started to reclassify its parks. All of these parks were originally created many decades (even centuries) before. However, the dates below are when they were officially designated a ‘National Park’ by their respective countries. Four parks were classified in 1951, with two each also designated in 1952 and 1954. South Downs National Park is the newest UK national park, created in 2009.
I love traveling the United States. I hunt down fantastic places to visit in the summer and great slopes to ski down in the winter. The first national park I ever visited was the Smokies, but since then, I've been to dozens. However, my favorite by far has been Zion.
