living the high life
Great views of London from the Sky Garden. It's in the Walkie Talkie building, although I've heard some people refer to it as the Toaster. Ages ago, when first constructed, its shape caused some sun beams to focus down to the pavement and melt parts of parked cars.
They figured out how to fix that before too many vehicles were vaporised sci-fi style and nowadays it offers one of the best (and free) views of London.
We arrived before sunset, but stayed for a meal in the Fenchurch, two further floors up. One of those tasting menus with about eight courses. Yum.
