Worth to visit! Very cozy place and the pace is so calm. Doesn’t fell you are in China or in Shanghai at all. There are small cafes and Italian restaurant that was very crowded. Many wedding photo couples. Great to spend some hours here.

Recommended by a local friend to make the journey. Unfortunate wet weather restricted our visit time. Residential area, little to no taxi out. One way Taxi ride was RMB 175, for an hour from People Square, around 7.30am-8.30am. Business there only starts at 10am.

It is a fascinating place! Good for engaged couples ,teenagers, students and kids. The Mock Tudor buildings and cobblestone streets are certainly inspiring. I have been there with my friends and we agreed to call this ''The Little Britain''.

Recommended for those who‘ve lived in Shanghai for a while and would like to get away from the hustle and bustle. If live in the West and just visit Shanghai, probably less interesting. It’s a serene town with English flair, lovely to take a stroll...More
