  • Book in advance your stay is available free of charge. You can see down under as the height of this exhilarating feel good, comfortable and the room facilities very good.

  • This is free to go to....why wouldn’t you. We pre booked for £10 each and that gets you fast tracked up and a cocktail that is cheaper than when up the top. Take a jacket as it is naturally ventilated...  more »
  • We have spontaneously gone on Saturday morning to the "Walkie-Talkie" building, could travel without waiting and free in the sky garden and regretted up there, not here to have breakfast (coffee/tea plus muffin or croissant) or similar with sensational views across London. Direction Thames, there is also an outdoor terrace, indoor Palm trees grow, and you can even completely go and look in all directions.

  • It's recommend to do bookings early before going here, however you may get walk in also if it's not a major tourist season. The entry is free and you get a nice view of the whole city. There are coffee and cocktail counters on the top however no beverages and food is allowed on the terrace. The garden is not a big attraction, however most people come for the views. The washrooms queues are usually pretty long.
  • If you are visiting London its well worth adding a visit to the Sky Garden into your trip. Easy to access from multiple tube stations and just a short walk from the Tower of London. Amazing 360 degree views over London from inside the building and more to soak up from the balcony at the front. A ticket is required for entry which can be obtained up to 2 weeks in advance from the Sky Garden website. The best thing is though these tickets are free. The tickets can go fast so worth getting them as soon as they are available.
  • Best view in all of London. They’ve designed this place well and it’s pretty cool to just walk around and check out. I definitely recommend getting your ticket beforehand online so you can skip queue which I heard can be pretty long. However when we were there there was no queue anyway. The ticket said we had a limit of one hour up there or something but no one polices that so you can just chill and enjoy the view. The gardens are cool and nice to check out. There is a cafe up there with seating but it is strange how the seating is far back from the glass. A better design would have been to have the seats and tables right next to the glass so you get an amazing view, otherwise what’s the point of being up there anyway? There is also a posh restaurant up there. We had a look at the menu and the prices were completely ridiculous. If you like splurging your pounds on expensive food then give it a go, but the view at this restaurant is even worse than the cafe so what’s the point? And I’m guessing the portions won’t be big anyway. If you’re in London, check out the skygarden, definitely worth it.
  • Totally and utterly fantastic!!! Just amazing that this wonderful place is free. Fabulous views of London. You can round everything off with a snack or drink at the cafe / bar - the prices are entirely reasonable. You need to book a ticket online about 2 weeks in advance. But it's so worth that little bit of effort. One of my favourite places in London!
  • Nice place to see especially that you can get in for free. Book your entry on line but spots are only open for 2 weeks in advance. You get view of London for free and a small lovely garden to enjoy at which you can sit as long as you like. Didn't eat anything there so don't know about the flood.
