  • Great place to have a look round, with amazing views across London. We went to the bar, in the evening. There was a long queue to get in, but as we had reserved an area we were able to bypass the line. It's a lot colder up there that I would have expected. I'm sure it's something to do with keeping all the plants healthy, but don't go in something skimpy. Definitely worth wearing an extra layer, or keeping your coat on. Unfortunately the outside balcony was closed due to high winds, so we could only look around from inside but the views are still great. Drinks are quite expensive, as you'd expect, and there was a minimum spend for reservations, but none of that is unusual for London. It is a nice place to enjoy a few cocktails. Not sure if go back, but it's one of those things which is nice to have done. I'd quite like to try the restaurant at the top. It looked nice and would be a great place to sit and enjoy a meal
  • Nice atmosphere,amazing view and very enjoyable experience especially if is your first time,you can’t miss one of the beautiful view of London from the sky garden,went already 3 times and always had a great time. Nice for couple for a drink or if you wanna go somewhere different...needs to be booked in advance from the website,it’s absolutely free but little suggestions try to book in advance because sometimes its overbooked. Highly recommended
