The Royal City

Founded 2,000 years ago by the Romans, there’s a lot of history to be discovered in the streets of London and along the Thames River. Once the capital of the world, this city is known for its grand monuments. It is also home to one of the world’s smallest monuments of two mice eating a piece of cheese and it is only an inch tall.
Part of London’s iconic skyline is the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral. Originally, Christopher Wren proposed having a giant, sixty foot pineapple instead of the dome. That would have made for a very different view.
