The walkie-talkie building based at 20 Fenchurch Street, in the heart of the city, is one of the newest skyscrapers to grace the London Skyline. To visit the sky garden, you can book your tickets online which are free! You have to book to secure your place so that they don't allow it to be overcrowded, although busy enough, it's not too manic. I also found booking at 1:15pm on a Friday, was the perfect time and we spent roughly over an hour there.
In the Sky Garden they have telescopes in each corner so you can watch with extreme zoom, you can watch the world below work and play and it's interesting to pick a spot and watch what happens.
The Bar was fairly priced too, for London prices at least. I had a glass of Prosecco and Dan had a beer and it came to £13. Some items are expensive and you could even get a £2,000 bottle of Champagne so you know, all budgets covered! They have a few bites to eat too but if you're looking for a lunch then book for the restaurant itself.
Things to remember, it gets cold, so keep your coat on even inside the garden/bar area. There are blankets available to keep warm with too which is an added bonus if you're there for a while!
We really enjoyed visiting and the best part of it being free meant it felt like we'd really got a great deal and spot. It was something we'd never done before so it was really interesting seeing the city from above!
