20 Fenchurch Street, known to Londoners as The Walkie-Talkie building opened in early 2014. To most of us, apart from those who worked there, it was just another skyscraper in London. But, last month the top floor opened as a viewpoint. It is called The Sky Garden and is home to two restaurants, one bar and a FREE viewpoint, yup FREE! As soon as it opened for booking I got us two places for Valentine’s day. So yesterday we headed up!
The building is in the heart of the city, nestled between older buildings. Upon arrival we zoomed up to the 35th floor in the super quick lift. I even felt my ears pop. Then we set at wandering around and admiring the view, seeing so many of London’s famous landmarks, many of which are viewpoints themselves.
It was wonderful and the views were great, even on an overcast February day! The terrace unfortunately wasn’t open yet and is due to open in mid March, so we might take another trip for then 😉
You can book online but keep checking back as they only seem to release a few days at a time. (I JUST checked and there is availability for the whole of March, so quickly book!)
Which is your favourite London view? (Check out my view photos from The Shard here, my favourite views of them all!)
