  • I brought my wife this voucher on the ‘Group-on’ website for entry and one complimentary cocktail in the gherkin roof bar. We had an hour and a half time limit but was well worth it, & long enough...  more »

  • Fab street..one of the City's finest. Stand under the gherkin on the east side and gaze in awe at the unsung masterpiece that is Holland House. Peek through the door and if you're brave try and blag your way down thru the ornately tiled entrance and stairs to the loos. Incredible building...try and find the black marble carved liner round the side. You won't be disappointed!!
  • It’s an office building, interesting to see it up close but not a lot in the area. The top 2 floors are a restaurant and bar with nice views but other than that it is not open to the public except maybe during special events. Walking distance to some Jack the Ripper sites and Tower of London. Brick Lane if you want a good curry is also reasonably close. There are some interesting churches also in the neighborhood.
