View from the Shard

 

The Shard

Towering over London’s cityscape, it’s no surprise that The Shard offers unrivaled views of the sprawling urban mass and surrounding countryside, from above. Make your way to the very top, and why not treat yourself to a glass of champagne or even a meal once you get there too? 

 

Primrose hill London

 

Primrose Hill 

Enjoy one of London’s many green spaces and visit Regent’s Park, which is home to the popular viewing point, Primrose Hill. Enjoy a clear view of London and Hampstead Heath and Belsize Park too, while relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. 

 

The London Eye


London Eye

Another big one, the London Eye whisks visitors round a huge ‘ferris wheel’, treating them to panoramic views of the surrounding city, and beyond! Take some time to enjoy the experience and notice the quirky things about London which you may not have spotted from the ground. 

 

Alexandra Palace and Park London

 

Alexandra Palace and Park

Venture up to north London and the famous ‘Ally Pally’, which offers fantastic scenes of the distant, iconic skyline. Unwind in the large park or laze around the palace itself, which is often host to big names in music and the arts. 

 

Sky Garden London

 

Sky Garden 

Located in the comically named ‘walkie talkie’ building (because of its unique shape), The Sky Garden is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon. Although tickets to the actual venue are free, they often get booked up quickly, so plan your visit in advance!

 

ArcelorMittal Orbit London

 

ArcelorMittal Orbit

Produced for the 2012 London Olympic Games, The Orbit resides in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The best part? You can slide the whole way down it! Climb to the top, briefly take in the beauty of surrounding London, then quickly descend back down to earth in the best possible way.

 

St Paul's Cathedral London

 

St. Paul’s Cathedral 

St Paul’s itself is an architecturally beautiful location that alone is something to be enjoyed by all. But did you know you can climb the dome too? If you’re brave enough to do so, you’ll be rewarded with a unique and special view of London.

 

The O2 London

 

The O2

Another one for all the adventurous souls out there - Up at the O2. Witness amazing scenes across London when you ascend to the roof of this iconic building, a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all family members.

 

Tower Bridge London

 

Tower Bridge

You don’t always need to go to great heights to capture those stunning London scenes, and Tower Bridge is an example of just that. Walk across the bridge, ending your journey at the Tower of London, completing your historical discovery of the city. 

 

Greenwich Park London

 

Greenwich Park

Pop on over to south-east London, and explore one of the many Royal Parks. Greenwich Park is a huge green space that covers 74 hectares - a perfect Instagram-worthy location that will make you the envy of all your followers.
