20 Fenchurch Street - The Walkie Talkie

I've known for sometime that it is possible to book a free visit slot at the Sky Garden at the top of 20 Fenchurch Street (The Walkie Talkie) London.

So I used the opportunity before the the Autodesk University London set up afternoon to do a bit of lunchtime work there.

Photographs below...

The Walkie Talkie

The initial view

The writing on the glass indicates the view points

The contrast of old vs new

The fantastic space at the top

Natural ventillation combined with artificial watering provides the environment for the garden

Quiet at the back for those wanting a view of the Shard and the Gherkin

Zoom in to spot Wembley in the distance

Plants + Glass + View

Not a bad location to work from

Pretty high
