Architectural wonders

From sumptuous stuccoed villas to handsome Roman aqueducts, thrillingly high-tech suspension bridges and beautiful baroque palaces, English architecture competes valiantly with everything the natural world creates. Discover the architectural heritage of our country, with different styles and periods on display throughout every town, often within the same edifice.

The historical architecture of cathedrals that took more than 1,000 years to complete will dazzle. Keep cameras ready for impressive Norman and gothic buildings. If you prefer something more contemporary, check out striking public buildings, libraries and performing arts centres, which have been designed with function as much as form in mind.
