Hmm, London has about 40-50 major historical sites/ large landmarks - everything from universities to megamalls, palaces to supertalls. NYC, Paris, Shanghai & Beijing the same.

Here are some of the lesser known ones in London:

Royal Holloway University

Alexandra Palace, one of the 19th Century's 'Peoples Palaces' (the other one was Crystal Palace), a hilltop complex so large it's largely sat empty and falling into ruin for most of the 20th Century. Noone really knows what to do with it since they uprooted the trainline away, stranding it in the suburbs.
