London, is a beautiful city with so much to see and do. With so many attractions, at so many different prices, it can get overwhelming to choose from the ongoing list. Back in October, it was my first time visiting London, I was eager to see the magical city from above. And that’s when I was constantly hearing about the Sky Garden.
Brief Description of the Sky Garden
Sky Garden is the highest public garden in all of London. Located in an excellent part of the city, they offer 360 degree views, important to mention, they are uninterrupted! Their facilities are three storeys high, with a cafe, toilets & restaurants. An experience like no other!
The views at the Sky Garden, are incredible! As mentioned above, they are uninterrupted, so you are sure to capture some of the best views of the city. There is one section that faces the River Thames, which is located outside. Protecting you with thick glass, you are sure to be safe. If you are afraid of heights, this may make you feel a bit uneasy. However, the indoor sections are just as great. There is a lot of areas within, to roam around, or to relax. Not only do tourists spend time there, many locals enjoy coming after work, to soak in the views, enjoy a coffee or hang out with friends.
I loved the fact that there are several eating/drinking facilities to choose from, depending on your budget. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy a nice glass of wine, while overlooking an incredible city like London!?
I’d have to say though, that the best part of it all, is the fact that it is totally free to go up the Sky Garden. London is considered to be one of the most expensive cities in the World. Being able to enjoy an amazing experience like this, for free, makes it that much better.
There is not many bad things to say when it comes to the Sky Garden. I’d have to say that there were two minor things that I did not enjoy. One of them being, the fact that I was only able to book my tickets 3 weeks ahead. Although, this has recently changed & you are now able to book 1 week ahead, with new tickets being released every Monday. So this is no longer a con! The other minor thing, was the fact that it gets very very busy and crowded, especially in the outdoor section. Regardless, these are very minor cons and I would definitely look past them!
