Curious London: Tips for unusual sights
There are also all kinds of curiosities to see in London. Insider tips for this are for example the Police station in Trafalgar Square and the "The Attendant" bar.
In Trafalgar Square you have to take a particularly good look to discover it: the “Police Box” is the smallest police station in London and probably the world. The station, the size of a phone booth, was built in 1926 and was intended to house only one police officer to watch the demonstrations in Trafalgar Square. Today it is only used as a warehouse for municipal cleaning - and is a small highlight.
The bar "The Attendant" in the Fitzrovia district is just as unusual. It is one of the London eateries that are housed in a former public toilet. The result is a counter made of urinals and cisterns as flower pots - everything naturally cleaned to a sparkle and despite the unusual atmosphere not without a certain charm. It's worth a visit!
