Worlds Largest Photograph Features Pimlico Flats – a bit! We are hidden behind the skyscrapers of Victoria in the panoramic view of London.
Taken after the end of the London 2012 Games, the 320 gigapixel image – taken by expert photography firm 360Cities – comprises 48,640 individual frames which have been collated into a single panorama by a supercomputer.

Buckingham Palace is visible bottom right in front of Pimlico Flats on this zoomed in shot, Battersea Power Station behind us. Watch the video to discover the sory of the making of this massive photograph.
