A Story in Every Stone

Four iconic buildings celebrated in one collection

Britain’s iconic buildings have played a key role in our history. The greatest have served as the homes of kings and queens, lords and ladies and the leaders that have influenced our cultural heritage. Each stone has a story to tell, bearing witness to praise and pageantry, royalty and rebellion, and to the lives of those who walked their halls and shaped our country.

10 Downing Street, one of the most recognisable private residences in the world, has been home to British Prime Ministers for nearly 300 years, while Edinburgh Castle has served as the seat of Scotland's kings and queens for centuries, dominating the city skyline. Hampton Court Palace was one of the homes of Henry VIII, the most famous and flamboyant monarch of the Tudor dynasty, while Westminster Abbey, a great place of worship, has seen kings and queens crowned and buried since 1066.
