It would have to be St Paul's cathedral, Salisbury Cathedral or the Taj Mahal.

You should all know what St Paul's and the Taj Mahal look like, but most people here won't know about Salisbury Cathedral. So here it is.

123m, the tallest church spire in England -

My favourite in the world of what I've seen in real so far would have to be...


the SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE



the BANK OF CHINA TOWER in Hong Kong



and finally....

probably the HEARST TOWER in New York.

There's too many buildings to mention that I think are great and several would rank up there as my favourite but if I had to pick one which just 'does it' for me I'd have to say it's the majestic Chrysler building.

Wow. I am impressed with the Canadian Parliment building. Just as good as ours (Aussies) but so different.

Australian Parliment building
