The British Listed Buildings Online website provides access to an online database of buildings and structures in England, Scotland and Wales that are listed as being of special architectural and historic interest.

As well as reading the official listing data for each building, you can also view the location on a map, and, for many buildings see it in Google Streetview and Bing Birds Eye View.

There is also an opportunity to add your own comments, information and photos and view comments and photos submitted by other users of the site.

You can browse for listed buildings by country, county and parish/locality.

Alternatively, you can use the search page to search for buildings by name/description text or by postcode.

 Listed Buildings - Britain

A listed building in the United Kingdom is a building which has been placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. There are just under 500,000 buildings in the UK to which this applies.

In England and Wales, listed buildings are classified in three grades:

Scotland currently uses categories A, B and C rather than grades. The assessment criteria for the categories differs slightly from the English and Welsh system, so a category B building in Scotland is not necessarily equivalent to a grade II* building in England.
