With its cobbled streets, red telephone boxes mock-Tudor buildings, it could easily be a quaint English market town. But for the fact that it is a copycat British town built in Shanghai.

Traditional buildings were copied and pubs and shops were imitated in an attempt to recreate the British way of life. There are even statues of Winston Churchill and Harry Potter.
