  • Its a free visit although queues very long to get in even though we went on a Monday. Nice place to get a drink with great views of other skyscrapers in central London such as the shard. Quite busy and I did expect more plants and trees and a bit more variety. Overall nice visit especially considering it is free. I would suggesting booking in advance ( slots are available to book up to 3 weeks in advance on the website). I presume views are great in the evening or when weather is better .
  • Superb place, one of the best free attractions in London. Very nice garden and excellent views over London. Free to book a slot online, but these go very quickly so best to keep an eye on dates being released. Balcony viewing is available but can be shut during adverse weather. We ate in the cafe - very nice food and reasonably priced for London. Staff friendly and helpful. No time limit once up the top so free to relax and take in the views. Can be cold inside at the top! Easily accessible from tube stations. Will definitely go back.
