The Gothic Revival (also referred to as Victorian Gothic or Neo-Gothic) is an architectural movement which began in the 1740s in England. It rapidly grew in popularity in the early nineteenth century, when increasingly serious and learned admirers of neo-Gothic styles sought to revive medieval forms in contrast to the classical styles prevalent at the time.

The revived Gothic style was not limited to architecture, but was also adopted in the decorative arts. A.W.N. Pugin, John Ruskin and Eugène Viollet-le-Duc were among the promoters of Gothic Revival.
