"After being set the task of redesigning St Paul's Cathedral in 1669, Sir Christopher Wren originally designed the dome with a pineapple on the top. Although it was never instated, there are, however, two on top of the western towers."

When walking across stunning Millennium Bridge, it always makes me feel like a tourist in my own city.
