Anthony Salvin was a 19th century British architect. He came from a Durham family, and went to London, where he became a pupil of John Nash. He then started his own practice, which lasted for some 60 years, where he became an expert in medieval fortifications, building and altering over 73 country houses. He did much restoration work on Windsor Castle and the Jewel House at The Tower of London. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1836, became vice-president in 1839, and in 1863 the Institute conferred its gold medal on him.
