Palaces, Castles and Stately homes of Europe

As i'm enjoying the Cathedrals of Europe thread, I thought that we could have a thread for the other great category of classical buildings in Europe.

I'll kick off with the UK.

One of the most famous but laest interesting architecturally imo is Buckingham Palace, home of the Queen.



Some other Palacesand castles in and around London

Kensington Palace





Hampton Court Palace





Tower of London





Windsor Castle





Palace of Westminster
