Ever been to the top of the Sky Garden? If not, you absolutely need to go! I booked a few tickets for my mom and some friends to go to the top of the Sky Garden one Saturday and it absolutely exceeded all expectations!
The Sky Garden is at the top of the ugly building that looks like a Walkie Talkie. It’s opposite the Shard, if you’ve ever been to London then you’ve probably seen it and wondered why on Earth someone designed it like that. Despite its dubious exterior its interior is gorgeous.
All four of us got a cocktail each and racked up a £50 bill! But that’s what you get when you order a drink in London, especially in a location like the Sky Bar. I definitely wouldn’t have bought more than one even though they were absolutely gorgeous. There was enough seating that we could chill out for half an hour and chat and enjoy the view.
When we decided to move from our cocktail drinking spot we explored round the garden. The whole of the Sky Garden is made from glass which gives you 360 views of the whole of London. It was great to be able to see the city from a height because I’ve never done so before. That’s right, I’ve never ever been on the London Eye. Probably because I’m no longer a tourist so just feel a natural aversion to all of the tourist trappings. Nevertheless, seeing places like The Shard, Westminster Bridge, The Gherkin etc from up above was amazing! I hope the pictures can do it justice for you guys.
If you want to visit the Sky Garden you can book here! I highly recommend it as it is free and made our day a little bit more special.
