I'm sure I saw something about this on TV a about a year or 2, but I can't find anything about it on t'internet. What I remember about it is they copied all the major landmarks in london and downscaled them.

Am I going made or is this real???

There is, kind of, but also from memory of a TV show - There's a place in Japan where they've built all this kind of stuff from around the world as a theme park also used lots for wedding ceremonies etc. But can't remember anything else about it

But in Japan it wouldn't surprise me - as well as the famous Dutch one on Kyushu, there is a fake Copenhagen right by the railway station in Kurashiki (near Okayama). Macau also has a strange kind of theme park near the harbour which includes bits of all sorts of places.

Hiya

I think you are talking about Shenzhen in China "Windows of the World"
someone recommended me to go there on my travels too. But this is more all wonders of the world on a smaller case not just London landmarks.

Happy Travels
