I also managed to compile a big list of WHS that are also featured as the 80 treasures of the world as selected by Dan Cruikshank for his BBC documentary.
not sure if this is a good route to start as there are plenty of other lists that can be cross referenced with but I just happen to be a fan of this series so thought I would suggest it.
Could also do one for WHS visited by Michael Palin in his travel series.

Feel free to write it off if you don't think it is to useful/ interesting or sets a bad prescedent
