China - Thames Town - Entrance to false English village

The entrance to Thames Town, a recently constructed typical English village in China. The architecture in the village imitates classic English market town styles. There are cobbled streets, Victorian terraces, corner shops, English style pubs and restaurants. Some of the architecture has been directly copied from buildings found in England. There is little natural street life in the village besides couples who use it as a wedding photography backdrop. The town, which is complete, has been designed to house approximately 10,000 people and has cost 5 billion yuan to construct. | Location: Songjiang, Shanghai Province, China.
