As part of our 37th wedding anniversary trip to London my wife and I decided to give this a go baring in mind my wife does not like heights. We went for the champagne experience and when we got to the top it was well worth the visit the views were spectacular. Would definitely recommend it ti friends and family.

Great view from the top. 360 degree views of London was just amazing. Champagne was lovely also. Could have a little more seating though.

Always a must see when in London. We’ve done the sunset time slot a few times now and fall more in love with the city every time. Preferred over the London eye personally. Also drinks at the top are not much more expensive than if you were going out so we skip the champagne and just buy a glass of wine instead. Pictures don’t do it justice!

If it is a fine sunny day this is a must do.

If you have a London Pass, the entry is free.

We went at 3:00pm and there was no queuing and went straight to the top.

You do need to get two lifts and go through struck security checks.

Once on top you still need to climb three more flights of stairs.

You are allowed to stay as long as you like, however it is only a fairly small area and 20 minutes is ample time unless you want two glasses of Moët for £22.

It would be lovely to watch the sunset over London from here but check out closing times.

You can also get your photograph taken for a price.
