Next time you’re in London, make sure you take a look at The London Helicopter’s interactive map of tourist attractions in the British capital. From a nineteenth-century homosexual brothel to the London Necropolis Railway, you’ll find plenty of sights here that should be of particular interest to steampunk fans.
Our favorite? The former embassy of the Republic of Texas just off Pall Mall. The website reports:
Under threat from both Mexico and the United States, the Republic of Texas sent an envoy to London to drum up support for their cause and the embassy was established. In true Texas fashion, this building was also the site of London’s last ever public duel.
