Historic England writes:

From Anglo-Saxon treasures in Suffolk to Yorkshire’s open-air sculpture gallery and Coventry’s ‘Building born out of love and hope made from the rubble of hate and despair’, Will Gompertz has chosen the ten places that tell the history of England’s art, architecture and sculpture. New podcast added to the series that will feature 100 places that bring to life England’s rich history. The powerful Angel of the North, the ‘transportative’ Barbara Hepworth Museum and the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral are among the top ten sites that tell the history of England’s art, architecture and sculpture. The places have been selected by BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz, from hundreds of public nominations…

The 10 chosen art, architecture and sculpture places:

  • St Paul’s Cathedral, London
  • Angel of the North, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear
  • Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield, West Yorkshire
  • Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, St Ives, Cornwall
  • Kelmscott Manor, Kelmscott, Oxfordshire
