Think staircases are just a burden to use when the lifts are broken? Think again as you look at these ten amazing staircases from around the world, including one of the most photographed staircases ever built.
One I would add to the list, though it isn’t open to the public most of the year, is the Grand Shaft. It’s a very clever triple spiral staircase built on the Western Heights in Dover that is really three staircases in one, letting troops rush down from the top of a cliff to the bottom in order to defend Dover at treble the rate a normal staircase would have allowed.
