The tomb of Michelangelo Buonarroti can be found in the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence, Italy. Realised by Vasari in 1570, the tomb includes three marble sculptures representing the personifications of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, saddened by the death of the great master.

Lytes Cary Manor is a medieval manor house in South Somerset with a beautiful Arts and Crafts garden. Originally the family home of Henry Lyte in the late 1500s, where he translated the unique Niewe Herbal book on herbal remedies, Lytes Cary was then restored in the 20th century by Sir Walter Jenner.
The house is run by the National Trust and is open to the public.
The largest covered public square in Europe, the British Museum’s Great Court was originally intended to be a garden. However with the creation of the reading room in 1852, the courtyard became the museum’s library and it wasn’t until it’s move in 1997 that the courtyard was opened again.
It is made of 3,312 uniquely sculpted panes of glass which were designed on computer and covers two acres. It increased the museums public space by 40%.
