Large and tasteful building, with beautiful gardens, just off the Bund at the north end. Apparently no longer serves as a consulate, but the majesty still evident.

A small area of gardens and specimen trees with carefully manicured paths, flower beds and lawns, adjacent to the Bund. Free entry- a pleasant place for a stroll, not sure if it is possible to go into any of the buildings.

Right near the bund/people's monument and Beijing road shops. It took about 5 minutes to cut through take a few pictures and be on our way. Didn't bother to gain access to the building - a restaurant

This was the original British Consulate in Shanghai. It is now a restaurant and opened to the public. It's close to the Bund so you don't have to travel very far to visit it. Just enter the gate and you can walk around the building...More

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
