Renaissance architecture in England

Queen Anne's house.

One of the few outstanding buildings in the Renaissance style in England is Queen Anne's house, at Greenwich, on the outskirts of London.

It was designed by Inigo Jones; building began in the year of Shakespeare's death (1616). Jones also built the Banqueting Hall in Whitehall, later decorated by Reubens. Jones travelled in Italy, and studied both ancient Roman and modern Italian art.
