  • We have seen this skyscraper far then we left foot to see more closely. It is very nice and especially original. District of the City. At the foot of the tower you can drink a coffee and buy a sandwich. I did have the opportunity to go there but I know there is a restaurant at the top of the tower which is delicious. This is a restaurant that requires a reservation in advance, an ID card to enter. Count £ 80 per person.

  • An iconic skyscraper in the city of London. At 180m above London, it's got great views but sadly out of bounds to public.However, you can have a look around inside at the annual Open House event. If you can't wait that long, I suggest booking a table at the restaurant Searcy which is open all year round.
  • Stunning views of gorgeous London. I particularly love coming here for one of their signature cocktails at sunset or storm. The service is wonderful - welcoming & efficient.
  • London Open House Worth the wait? Almost four hours waiting in open air from 9:40am blasted by constant wintry draft only to be told you would not be getting in at 1:30pm ........ Obviously the organizer likes the publicity of stupid people queueing up for hours on end to get into the "hot place"....... The longer the queue the better
  • Magnificent contemporary building which will create a new history for the city of London. Lovely views from the reception and party rooms on the 38th floor. Delighted to visit this structure.
  • love it here. been visiting since it was under construction. as well as being iconic the 'gherkin' always has art exhibits around it
