Too often, we look down. Down at our feet, down at our phones, down at the pavement. But London is a great place in which to look up.

In this series, we’re celebrating the glorious ceilings and rooftops of London buildings as well as giving you the chance to test your London brains and see how many you can identify. Each week we’ll present a gallery and share last week’s answers. We've arrived at the third instalment and while we had many correct guesses for the first week, last week's seemed to bamboozle you. Let's see how you fare this time, we've been a bit kinder.

Below are the answers to last week’s tricky photos (in white text — highlight to view).

1. Strawberry Hill House Gallery
2. Queen's House, Royal Museums Greenwich
3. Guildhall
4. The King's Staircase, Kensington Palace
5. Draper's Hall
6. St. Mary Woolnoth church

How many did you get right from last week? Feel free to brag in the comments, as well as giving this week’s ceilings above your best shot.
