One of London's quirkier museums, this 19th Century former pumping station today houses interactive exhibits and steam engines.

London's Smallest Police Station is a tiny building that served as a proper station house, back in its day. Located in Trafalgar Square, this miniature police station has just about enough space for one policeman. It was a significant spot in the 1930s, when it was used to shoot rifles at protesters and violent mobs. Today however, it no longer functions as a police station, and is mostly used as a storage space for sweepers and cleaners.
Located in the Limehouse region of London around Gerrard Street, this is the primary section of town to which residents of Hong Kong immigrated after World War II.

Despite the stories of Opium dens and slum housing, London's Chinatown has now emerged as one of the more happening parts of the city.
Established somewhere between 1731 and 1735, Savile Row marks the history of traditional made-to-order tailoring in London. The Mayfair street is rumored to be the birthplace of fine-tailoring for men. In fact, Savile Row is also where the first tuxedo was created, by a Henry Poole, in the 1840s. Along with bespoke tailoring, other prestigious businesses and establishments such as the Royal Geographical Society and The Beatles' Apple Corps office thrived here. Now, so many decades later, it is still where the glamorous, fashion-forward men of London go to get stellar hand-stitched suits. Savile Row is also home to some of the most popular restaurants and eateries in Mayfair.
