A visit to London’s newest tourist attraction: the Sky Garden

In recent years, the skyline of central London has been reshaped by a number of tall buildings which have attracted popular names like the Gerkin, the Shard, and the Cheesegrater. Another is the Walkie Talkie at 20 Fenchurch Street which curves outwards at the top and 35 floors up this building is a new attraction called the Sky Garden.

Entrance is free and one can stay as long as one wants, but one has to pre-book a time slot online. So this week I found myself joining members of my Chinese ‘family’ – Hua and her son eight year old Joshua – on a visit to the site. Although it was rather cloudy and overcast, it was lots of fun with good views of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, City Hall, HMS Belfast, the Shard and St Paul’s Cathedral.
