Free Attraction in London - Garden in the Sky!
The best thing about the Sky Garden at Number 20 Fenchurch Street is not the fact that it is free, it is the views over the river and the city, and the beautifully maintained indoor garden. There is an excellent cafe / restaurant with a fantastic array of healthy and tasty choices (and the biggest cookies)!
The area at the top of this new and futuristic building is spacious and enjoyable to walk around to appreciate the garden as well as the views over London from all angles - indoors and outdoors. The Tower Bridge, The Shard and other South Bank landmarks are clearly seen from the outdoors viewing platform and the views over other parts of London are equally stunning from other indoors areas in the large space which is helpfully made almost entirely of glass.
To visit the Sky Garden and get your free tickets you need to register online in advance at the website. The nearest tube stations to 20 Fenchurh Street are Monument, Bank and Tower Gate and the building is easy to find - in the centre of the city area of London looming high over the surrounding buildings.
