  • 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

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
