Sky Garden was a wonderful find. Free attraction showing wonderful views of London. Lovely atmosphere with breathtaking views. Make sure to reserve your tickets or they will not let you in. Don't miss this experience.

Only drawback is the lack of restrooms. There are a few unisex ones but not many for the big crowds.

Amazing views of the London area for 360 degrees. Go on a clear day and if you have a good camera bring it. Food is available for purchase inside. Tickets are free but you do need them to get in. Entrance is around back of building and express elevator takes you directly to the top after going thru metal detector.

It was the first time I visited Sky Bar. We had an anniversary with my boyfriend,so we wanted to go somewhere special, therefore we decided to book a table in Sky Pod 35. When the hostess, Mrs.Marilu, saw that in our reservation we had written as comment that we have our first anniversary, she gave us a table with the best view and she tried during the whole night to serve us in the best way she could. The coctails were amazing and they were value for money! This night will remain unforgettable to us! We saw the sunset and afterwards the amazing view of London at night, while the music was so relaxing. I truly recommend SkyPod either for a date or for drinks with friends. The view is stunning and the atmosphere of the bar is friendly! Congratulations to the stuff and especially to the hostess Mrs. Marilu.

My wife surprised me with tickets to the Sky Garden. We arrived 15 minutes before our slot but were allowed straight in through the security check. The lift took about 30ish seconds to get to the top and then you walk out into a nice open area with amazing views of London.

The food and drink were not too overpriced considering where you are and there never felt like there were too many people up there. While eating, my wife told me it was free and I couldn’t believe it. Other attractions like this are chargeable.

Go visit immediately!

Booked this a week in advance. Free entry just need to book time slot on line. Definitely worth the visit. They take you up by lift to something like the 70 th floor and you get a 360 view of London. The day we went was rather grey but we still had a good view. You Go through security check like at the airport which was a bit worrying but worth the hassle. The ladies on the door are rather officious and off putting. Food options not so great. Fine dining if you are into that sort of thing. Not my taste. Another normal kind of restaurant but was very noisy so not relaxing..Would have liked to have a sit at a normal cafe and had light food with coffee.. the view was spectacular and you can walk all the way round. They have information pointing out each building. A must do whilst in London
