  The staircase
by ChrsStrl

This is a mid 17th Century house built for the Prior but now part of Westminster School. The main feature of the house is the staircase with carved balusters, Ionic columns and an elliptical dome, which is now considered to have been designed by a pupil of Inigo Jones. Currently most of the portraits are of previous Headmasters.
