Paint the sky, make it yours

Jun 21, 2015
Wesley and I took a special trip to London to visit Sky Garden, which is London's highest public garden located at the top of the "Walkie Talkie" skyscraper. Entry to Sky Garden is free but visits must be booked online at least three days in advance. On arrival, we had to queue before presenting our tickets and verification of identity. Once we passed security screening, we took a super fast lift to the 35th floor.

Sky Garden offers a panoramic view of London as well as an open and vibrant place of leisure. The garden itself is nice, but it's the spectacular views that make it a worthwhile visit. The area is spacious and it's not overcrowded. There is an open balcony that offers an impressive view, overlooking the Thames with the Tower Bridge to the left, the Shard in front and the London Eye to the right. The only downside is the slow service at the bar, which could do with more staff. Overall I definitely recommend a visit to Sky Garden because who doesn't like a free attraction that offers a spectacular view of London.

Food bar.

The food looked good and the prices were reasonable, but we were too full from lunch, so we opted only for drinks.

Busy at the bar.

One last view before going.
