NOTES: Roger Lupton was provost of Eton College from 1503 to 1535, during which time he commissioned the new range. Built in 1517-1520, it comprised the provost's lodge, the Election Hall, and the embattled tower of the gatehouse.
NOTES: The Royal Pavilion was built as a seaside retreat for the then Prince Regent (later King George IV). Originally the 'Marine Pavilion', a Neo-Classical building designed by Henry Holland and completed in 1787, it was transformed into this Indian style building by John Nash in 1815-1822. Using new technology, Nash enlarged the building and added the domes and minarets by superimposing a cast iron framework over Holland's pavilion.
