Seeing the historic centre of London from a skyscraper is always a pleasure, but not everyone can or wants to spend £25 for the ticket (as you have to for other famous buildings). Luckily for us, the new Sky Garden of London in the famous building 20 Fenchurch Street, better known by Londoners as the “Walkie Talkie”, has opened its doors to visitors for free.
If you want to visit the highest gardens in the city, you can book tickets at this link. It is advisable to do it at least 3 days before. You must also bear in mind that you cannot carry liquids over 100ml or large backpacks, and you have to identify yourself with a photo ID, etc., due to security measures.
The maximum stay is an hour and a half, to avoid crowds.
Designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, and having cost more than 200 million pounds, 20 Fenchurch Street has highly distinctive features that give it the impression of being about to burst due to its expansive form. A large viewing deck, a bar and a restaurant are included in the top three floors. It has been open to the public as of January 12, 2015.
The tower has a height of 160m, although it was originally planned to be 200m tall.
