London’s Best Views – Sky Garden

Last weekend I visited London’s highest public garden, Sky Garden, found in the recently completed Walkie Talkie building (yep, London loves to give its buildings ridic names).

As an expat living in London, nothing gives me greater pleasure than going to places where I can enjoy a drink whilst looking over the entire city in all its glory. When you live in a busy city like London, it’s so easy to get caught in the day-to-day life and every now and then when you take time to step back and just enjoy the city views from atop of somewhere magical like Sky Garden, it has a way of bringing those butterflies back and reminds you how lucky you are to call London home!

Sky Garden spans over 3 storeys with 360 degree views of London. There are two restaurants (both require booking) and a bar, which is accessible with a free visit pass (which you need to book online here).

The open air terrace has beautiful views of the Thames and the south of London.

Though you have been warned…. it gets windy! Not ideal for trying to take a nice photo…

Entry to the Sky Garden is free, though you have to book at least 3 days in advance online. If you want to go on a weekend then you’ll probably have to book a few weeks ahead as tickets sell out quickly. See their website for more details.
