Dog and a friend (Bath, ENGLAND)

A gentleman and his canine companion rest in a courtyard framed by the reaching spires of gothic Bath Abbey. The balusters behind him, a fine example of the stunning honey-colored stone that dominates Bath's Georgian architecture, are part of the popular Roman Baths complex.

The Anglican, ENGLAND

Cathedral Church of Christ (informally, The Anglican). An enormous specimen of Gothic revival architecture, and the second largest Anglican Cathedral in Europe, its tower stands more than 300ft high (a football field standing upright) and holds the heaviest peal of bells in the country (13 bells weighing a total of 16.5 tons—the same as six Clydesdales).

The imposing, stark structure of the Anglican’s exterior continues inside. The cathedral is cavernous with vast open space, colossal arches, and little adornment. From the high ceilings to the wide open spaces, the cathedral amplifies every breath, whisper, and clicking of shoes.
