I booked tickets for the Sky Garden when I knew we had the time to visit it. It’s a very popular destination and it was crowded, we had to queue, even thought we had a booking with a time-slot. Visiting the Sky Garden is free, so definitely something to look to if you are going to London.
I hoped the day will be sunny and it was. As I booked a couple of weeks before getting to London, I had no idea how the weather will be like.
The Sky Garden is at the 35th floor of the Walkie-Talkie. After going through security, we went to the elevator and in no-time we were in the garden. The garden is on 3 floors, there is a cafe and a restaurant. The prices are ok, less than I was expecting.
I like this picture a lot, as I can see my reflection in the steel. I was looking at the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
Tower Bridge. I love the way it looks, by day and by night too.
On the right side is Wembley. It’s nice to recognize the buildings without any help/hints.
It’s called Sky Garden because there is a garden too, although most people are more inclined to look for the amazing views and take less interest in the greenery.
Sky Garden looks really nice, it’s so big. I saw pictures of the garden before booking, but it’s even better when you are there.
The roof of that building looks amazing. I have no idea what building it is.
Hubby thinks the Gherkin should be called something more appropriate for a Sky Scrapper, something powerful, like “The bullet”. I don’t agree, I think the name is funny. What do you think?
My husband and I enjoyed ourselves, the views are stunning and the place is really lovely.
