This is a ‘must’ for my next trip to London!
Originally posted on London Unveiled:
Visit the top of the ‘Walkie-Talkie’ building and find a public garden with great views – and its free! Unlike the Shard that charges £24.95 you can come here and obtain similar views without the cost – though the views here are from the 35th-37th floors, its still high enough! While originally conceived and branded as a ‘park’, the limitations of cultivating plants inside the top of a sky-scraper have led to a space that is a blend of gardens, views, open space, a terrace and eating/drinking spots. As such it is truly unique.
Officially known as 20 Fenchurch Street, the ‘walkie-talkie’ is 38 storeys tall and is currently the 5th highest building in London. While free to visit, space limitations require you to pre-book complimentary tickets for a slotted entry time. As a truly unique space offering 360 degree views of London, its well worth a visit.
