Gothic Revival or Neo-Gothic. England was the center of the Gothic revival movement that spread to continental Europe, Australia, South Africa and to the Americas; mainly in the building of churches and government buildings.

The Gothic Revival was a conscious movement that began in England to revive Gothic forms, mostly in the second half of the 18th century and throughout the 19th century... In the 19th century its main champion was Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin who, among others, took a much more scholarly approach to the revival of past styles. This ultimately led to an ambitious programme of Victorian church building, served by architects immersed in the style. [1]
