You know that massive building in London City? The one that looks like a retro walkie-talkie?
You can go up there, and it’s free!
The booking process is a bit annoying (you can’t just turn up willy nilly – you have to pre-book via their website here) but considering you’d pay £25 for a ticket to London’s other big observation deck at The Shard, a little bit of fuss is nothing when you think you get views like this for free…
If you’re planning a visit, try and book 3/4 weeks in advance to save disappointment. They give you something to print out, and then you turn up with your tickets and voila! Opening times are below:
There’s a little cafe up there for the people ‘just visiting’ but there’s also a couple of restaurants up there too (Darwin’s Brasserie, Fenchurch Restaurant and Sky Pod) and if you have restaurant bookings, you don’t need to book the observation deck tickets.
Now for more photos! Because the view is just, wow.
