Walking around the streets of London, we are so used to looking up that it comes with some relief to find those places where we can look across or down
Having friends in high places for example…and a glass towered residence with panoramic views
One New Change between Cheapside and Cannon Street has a public roof garden across from the city and St Paul’s
climb St Paul’s 360 plus steps to the 360 degree Stone Gallery viewing platform or take it higher to the Golden Gallery above the dome for more eyeline skyline panoramas -(you can just see people in this photo)
“walk the spiralJo Shapcott, Gherkin Music
up out of the pavement
into your own reflection, into
transparency, into the space
where flat planes are curves
and you are transposed
as you go higher into a thought…”
Free rooftops, platforms and views of London

I am in London for a weekend, visiting my boy! What great pics!
places for you and your boy to try maybe?
Today we had a massage, an Indian lunch and then walked miles…
One does what they want really, isn’t it?
yes especially when meetups are rarer!
I live on the 8th floor so I’m much more familiar with the tops and rooftops of the buildings I can see than the street views of them. I’m always being surprised by what I realize is actually the bottom of the top I look at every day. (K)
top shots from the 20th floor – so many tall buildings in London now we have to climb higher and higher
Yes, midtown would be another story. I’m in a residential area with a lot of brownstones.
360 steps? I think not. Be nice to have those views from a roof garden though.
nor me – but the roof garden opposite is well worth a visit
It’s really great having “friends in high places!” Those views!!! I just realized how much London has changed as I try to navigate!
even I can’t keep up(!) with all the developments Marina – and I hate lifts but sacrifice my phobias for these views!
Imagine going back 30 years!!! 🙄
Those views are worth the sacrifice!
