The tulip staircases in London

The tulip staircases are located in London, more exactly in Queen’s house in Greenwich.

The Queen’s house is a former royal residence built between 1616 and 1635.

Inside this building you can find the The Tulip Stairs

These stairs have a very particular shape, helicoidal and are particular for the intense blue color of the railing.

The name has no sense, in fact there has been a mistake, these should be been called “Lily staircases” because there is are lilies represented in the railings.

The first centrally unsupported helical stairs constructed in England. The stairs are supported by a cantilever from the walls with each tread resting on the one below.
