Spiralling, grand, minimalist... London's home to many heavenly staircases. How many of these have you been up/down?
St Pancras Renaissance Hotel
This staircase famously featured in the Spice Girls' music video for Wannabe.
Courtauld Gallery, Somerset House
London City Hall
During its refurbishment, Tate Britain installed a brand new sweeping spiral staircase leading from its main entrance down to the café and restaurants.
St. James Theatre
St. James Theatre's minimalist staircase is made from a single block of marble.
The Wellcome Collection
William Kent's staircase brings to life the court of George I. The vivid mural replaced plain wood panelling installed by Christopher Wren. Kent was paid the handsome fee of £500 for this work.
The Royal Observatory
The Tulip Stairs are one of the Queen's House's original features. Designed by Inigo Jones, England's first notable architect, the staircase was Britain's first geometric self-supporting spiral stair. It's now thought the 'tulips' are in fact fleur de lis.
