#LPChat - architecture (2)

From awe-inspiring ancient spires to innovative, contemporary designs, the world's varied locales are so often characterised by their architecture. So much of the joy of travelling involves looking up, down and all around at the man-made marvels that form concrete jungles, iconic skylines and world-renowned landmarks of different destinations.

To celebrate the release of our newest title A Spotter's Guide to Amazing Architecture in April, we're hosting an #lpchat on Twitter, all about the planet's greatest buildings, structures and ancient sites. There'll be chat about chapels, talk on temples and conversation about construction a-plenty, as well as oodles of travel inspiration.

Bring your best stories, pictures, tips and tricks, and meet us on Twitter at 16:30 BST/ 8:30 PDT on Wednesday 28 March. See you there!

The best tweeter will win themselves a copy of our new A Spotter's Guide to Amazing Architecture book.
