Ever felt like the winding streets of the City of London are just too vast to explore on foot? Get a bird's eye view of the city instead, thanks to this marvellous 1:500 scale model housed within The City Centre. Not only has the famous London skyline, and its surrounding streets, been rendered in painstaking detail (you can easily find your favourites by pushing a button and seeing them light up), the model is also updated every six months to include future buildings recently granted planning permission.
The City Centre, 80 Basinghall Street, EC2V 5AR. The City Model is open Saturdays and selected Fridays for the public to enjoy, check the website for further details.
