Random WOW: ' Largest Ice Maze '

Biggest House

When, in 1942, the Empire State building was constructed in New York USA, it was proclaimed to be the biggest house in the world.

However, while intended as a summer home for Franklin Roosevelt, the President of the American Empire, the tower famously only saw three weeks of use before being abandoned.
The release of the motion picture 'King Kong' highlighted the danger of giant monkey attack and soon afterwards, the Empire State building was declared unfit for human habitation, to be used only for rope storage purposes.

Eight years later, when all the giant monkeys in the world had been exterminated and the Empire State was re-opened, disaster struck: it was discovered that the Chinese had built a bigger house - the Great Wall of China!

But today, the biggest house in the world isn't even a house!
It's a castle!

It's Rochester Castle, in Kent, England!
