GREAT COURT AT THE BRITISH MUSEUM
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

This museum courtyard designed by Lord Norman Foster is the largest covered plaza in Europe. Snow white classical façades, curving stairways and a roof made up of 1,656 individual glass triangles all create a panorama to take your breath away. The reading room, free since the British Library moved to St Pancras, towers above the rest at the very heart. This, the largest museum of cultural history in the world, is home to over seven million first-class exhibits from many different countries and eras.
