Beautifully illustrated, you will instantly recognise where in the world the mugs are celebrating. The mugs include well-known tourist locations such as The Tower of London, The London Eye and Big Ben. These sit next to iconic symbols of the capital of the United Kingdom, such as wellington boots, a bowler hat, a Yeoman Warder and even a pigeon. A London bus sits on the inside of the mugs, ready to drive along the top of your tea or coffee!
The mugs are made from fine bone china - lifestyle setting
