Committee Decisions

Inscription: Maritime Greenwich (United Kingdom)

Maritime Greenwich


United Kingdom


The Committee decided to inscribe this property on the basis of cultural criteria (i), (ii), (iv) and (vi), considering that the public and private buildings and the Royal Park at Greenwich form an exceptional ensemble that bears witness to human artistic and scientific endeavour of the highest quality, to European architecture at an important stage of its evolution, and to the creation of a landscape that integrates nature and culture in a harmonious whole.

The Delegate of Morocco informed the Committee that he felt that the site did not justify criterion (i), and requested that it should not been mentioned.
