London Vs Paris infographic

It's the clash that no one's been waiting for, the urban head-to-head that'll go down in internet history as a "mildly interesting use of two minutes" - it's the London versus Paris infographic (that's actually more a list of interesting facts).

While the concept of a city versus city clash will only really appeal to flag-waving xenophobes, the following infographic does contain heaps of useful pub quiz ammo. Did you know that (Greater) London covers 607 square miles? Or that the Eiffel Tower is actually taller than London's hulking new Shard at 1,063 feet? Or that Paris' most visited attraction is (sickeningly) Disneyland?

A browse of the following info will hopefully leave you wanting to visit both culturally rich cities - but if you're inclined to have a 'winner', our money's on London. Unless you don't like the English, in which case it's definitely Paris.
