Britain is an architectural goldmine. From ancient majesties such as York Minster to modern designs illuminating Britain’s cities, these magnificent feats of design stand boldly in the landscape. One of the most striking examples of Romanesque architecture is the Natural History Museum in South West London. Architect Alfred Waterhouse used terracotta for the entire building because of its resistance to harsh climates. Don’t forget to stop by the Tower of London while you’re at it for an immersive history lesson into the architecture that served as a fortress, royal palace and a prison!
