Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – Landscapes for Life

Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) are some of the UK’s most cherished and outstanding landscapes.

With 46 AONBs covering just under 1/5th of the UK, they offer a wealth of opportunities for both people and wildlife to benefit from our countryside. And as vibrant, living landscapes, they underpin the economy and the health and wellbeing of our society.

We see them as the UK’s Landscapes for Life in more ways than one.
