Snow makes all things lovely, but I think Oxford University (Oxfordshire, England) is the indisputable winter winner. (hazyphotos flickr)
The Jackson Staircase: Hertford College
This marvellous spiral staircase took my breath away, it’s rather strange but I find it beautiful.
The stone spiral staircase was designed by Sir Thomas Jackson, and inspired by the spiral staircase at the Château de Blois.. I don’t know what year the staircase was built but I would think it was 1913, which is when the Hertford Bridge was built linking the Old and New Quadrangles of Hertford College
