Sky Garden, London

I'm having a little bit of a love affair with London at the moment.

After my last London post going down so well with my lovely readers, I thought I'd make it a regular occurrence. I spend a lot of time in the city visiting family and friends, going to meetings and events and doing the odd bit of shopping now and then.

I love to hear about the latest happenings in London so, when I heard about the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street, I booked straight away.

The Sky Garden is located in the new Walkie Talkie building near Monument tube station. Over three floors, you have uninterrupted views of London. It is also home to the highest garden in Central London (and so it should be, 35 floors up!).

The views are spectacular, and surprising bearing in mind that when you're approaching the building you are surrounded by so many tall buildings. However, when you get up to the 35th floor all the other buildings seem to shrink, with The Sky Garden becoming the tallest building in the neighbourhood.

London from up high always makes me feel magical. Everything looks so small and model-like. 

After a bit of playing 'If you could live in any London building, what one would you choose' (Buckingham Palace, obvs) and eyeing up the food in the Darwin Brasserie and Fenchurch Seafood Bar & Grill, we headed to the Sky Pod Bar for a little refreshment.

How could we not have a drink whilst admiring the view?

Especially when the drink I ordered came with candyfloss!

(I may have got a little excited about this)

The Sky Garden is a perfect little treat for anyone. Whether you're looking to impress on a first date, or you're entertaining some out-of-towner's it's a great place to visit. 

Tickets are free and, you will need to book ahead (here).

Yes, you did hear me right....tickets are free!

I'll drink to that...
