The building was completed in 2004 and serves as an office building, a reinsurer. The gherkin is visible from many places of from London and probably symbolizes the modern London as a second building. We particularly liked the futuristic design with reflective surfaces.

Great blue egg that's iconic in the London skyline. The Gherkin, or 30 St Mary Axe is one of London’s new iconic skyscraper that takes on a new unique architectural style. It’s one of the key landmarks in the city. As far as I know, there isn’t really a viewing gallery that you can visit as it’s mainly commercial space. So, we will have to contend with enjoying it from afar.
The Gherkin is such a iconic london building every tourist or londoner should see and should know about it due to its amazing architecture work.
Visited the private dining rooms at the top of The Gherkin for a private function a month or so ago. Had a fantastic time and the views are stunning. Private dining rooms did however feel a little dated and quite "temporary". The walls were the kind that could easily be moved to adjust room size but it gave the slight impression you were eating inside a cardboard box. All in all a good event and the views really were something to get excited about!
Amazing building. You have to get a reservation for Searcys the bar on the top floor in advance, though.
I have always admired the building's architecture from afar and wondered how the interior looked like. I got a chance to go to Searcy on the top floor and was floored by the view I saw. All the staff from the concierge to security to reception staff to bar staff were friendly and attentive.
