The Traffic Light Tree
Oh, look…did someone edit this photo using some editing software? No, this is a real photo, which is not retouched or altered in any way.

This set of traffic lights control one of the busiest junctions in London – Isle of Dogs. But, how do drivers know which set of lights to follow?

The Traffic Light Tree at Canary Wharf is just a piece of art, by Pierre Vivant, a French designer. Standing tall at 8 metres, this weird London attraction has 75 sets of lights. Every set of lights feature a cycle, which is actually controlled by a computer.

Installed in 1999, this grand illusion proved too expensive to reflect activities of London Stock Exchange.

York House and the Statues of Naked Ladies
It is a surprise. York House Gardens in Twickenham is full of erotica. The greatest surprise you can have in London is unexpectedly visiting the statues of naked ladies, some in unusual attitudes, surrounded by a cascade and a pool in the gardens.
Imported especially from Italy in 1904, these statues and gardens were acquired by last private owner of York House, Sir Ratan Tata, an Indian industrialist.
These statues are carved using Italian Carerra marble and depict 8 Oceanids and a pair of aquatic horses. These naked female figures have also influenced a local beer company, which has named one of its beer after them – ‘Naked Ladies Twickenham local beer’.


Camden Catacombs
A long-forgotten labyrinth of tunnels and vaults, Camden Catacombs bears witness to a colourful Victorian past of this London area. Situated deep beneath Camden streets, it is a secret to hordes of travellers coming to the capital.
These catacombs are weird underground maze near Roundhouse that were built in 19th century as stables for horses. These Camden Catacombs were used as pit ponies to shunt railway wagons too.

They run under the Euston mainline, covering goods depot at Primrose Hill, Gilbeys Bonded Warehouse, and Camden Lock Market. There is an underground canal basin, which you can see from Camden Lock Market.
