There are a number of different definitions of classic and I found myself floundering around trying to decide on one. In the end I've taken the definition "of a well-known type, typical".
A cathedral (Winchester) where "the west end is a particularly good specimen of Perpendicular architecture, i.e. a grid of vertical panelling in both windows and walls. It is in three sections, fronting the nave and two aisles. The central nave section is flanked by two slender octagonal towers". From Winchester Cathedral Architecture. I took this view showing the end of the classic yew-tree lined walk approaching the cathedral.
A hotel in the south of France, overlooking the Meditarranean. I'm not sure why, but this looks exactly how I would imagine a hotel on the Côte d'Azur. It looked absolutely perfect when we saw it last June, but apparently it will be closed from October this year until next spring "for refurbishment".
A classic Loire château, Chenonceau.
And finally a classic photo of Venice, the Rialto bridge, showing the classic Venetian mode of transport, gondolas.
