Our top five London’s smallest…

Posted at 2:00 pm, June 19, 2012 in Secret London, Top 5

It may be a small world but we’ve found  five of London’s smallest delights.

1 Public sculpture, 23 Eastcheap, EC3
Two mice (above) have been fighting over a piece of cheese here since 1862.

2 Police station, Trafalgar Square, WC2
In 1926, a police post was created in the square inside the stone base of a lantern, with room for a single constable. It’s now a storage unit used by cleaning crews.

3 Listed building, Ostler’s Hut, WC2
This 1860 shelter was for the ostler who cared for visitors’ horses at Lincoln’s Inn.

4 Church, St Ethelburga-the-Virgin, EC2
This rare medieval survivor of the Great Fire of London dates from 1250.

5 Cathedral, Vauxhall Bridge, SW1
A miniature St Paul’s Cathedral is carried by one of the figures which adorn Vauxhall Bridge. Josie Gurney-Read
