Over 2,000 years of settlement give London a unique architectural heritage, and in the past four centuries, the capital has become crowded with masterpieces. Offering an overview of some of the city's most beloved and distinctive structures, this guide profiles St. Paul's Cathedral, Kew Palace, Westminster Abbey, Covent Garden Piazza, the Shard, the British Library, the Millennium Dome, and the Royal Hospital Chelsea, among many others. Each entry includes a text, illustration or photo, floor plan, and a listing of the architect and date of construction. Their most notable features are explained in substantial captions, and the book also includes a glossary of architectural terms.
