Came across this by chance. Free to enter and a short ride on the lift takes you to the top f 120 fenchurch street. A work in progress with plants and grasses beautifully laid out, it will take some m... more »

Fortunately I came back to Italy on Monday afternoon and at 10am, rather shortly before, I presented myself again; At 10 o'clock we were made to pass first at a metal detector (only the bags), then get on the 15th floor with a fast and quiet elevator. We were perhaps not even a dozen people; Arrived at the top greeted a nice gentleman who told us he was at our disposal if we needed the information. Although the height is not so high, the view is at 360 °, there was again the wind (annoying after 3 days) so excellent visibility: you can admire Canary Wharf, the Tower Bridge, The Thames, St. Pauls ' Cathedral, the Shard, the City and alas, many but many cranes , a lot of new constructions are coming up. There are few people, a silence, an almost unreal peace and tranquility; Zero noise from the trafficked streets below. Beautiful and well cared for the garden and I imagine that the plants, you see that they are young, in the future will create an even more beautiful area, nice even the idea of the waterway; Definitely not going to be so quiet during lunch time, but taking the break there sitting on a bench, it doesn't have to be bad at all. It's all outdoors, so if it rains I don't think it's worth going there; However, at least at the moment, it is free and you do not need the reservation.
This is one of the most impressive views of London. It may not be the highest viewpoint, but the actual location of the building makes up for it. It's bang right in the middle of the city which means 360 degree views of London and the neighbouring skyscrapers. It's spacious and even has its own water feature. Best of all, it's free to visit. I recommend visiting at sunset when you get to see London during day and night. There will also a restaurant opening very soon this year (2019). I can't recommend Garden at 120 in Fenchurch Street. If you are on a budget and love a good view, then you have to visit this place.
Stumbled across today. It’s one if the best things that I have seen for a long time. The day was beautiful, so nice to be able to take in the views. Sit and reflect. Will be coming back.
