London is one of few cities in the world that will constantly take your breath away with its picturesque views. Make sure to take advantage of all vantage points during your stay with our guide to the best views of London.
This is a hidden sanctuary 155 metres above London. With 360 degree views of the city, this is London’s highest public garden. Explore the impressive landscaped gardens of the Sky Garden and watch the sun go down over London.
This is the dream location for a day spent overlooking London. Why not bring a homemade picnic from your serviced apartment in the Harrington and spend the day gazing at London’s stunning skyline. The sprawling trees on Primrose Hill are all kept at a low height so as not to obscure the iconic views.
The London Eye
If you’re looking to go sky high and view sights to behold then a trip on the London Eye will raise you up. You can also relax and avail of a champagne experience while you take in those spectacular views.
It’s one of the most recognisable buildings in London and the world. With so many restaurants, you’re utterly spoiled for choice at the Shard. The height of the building stands at 1,016ft with spectacular views at every level. Not one for those who suffer from vertigo!
If you have a little more time on your hands, travel further afield to Greenwich and visit the world’s only surviving tea clipper, the Cutty Sark. You can then take a walk to the top of the hill in Greenwich Park and take in the sights of London beside the statue of General James Wolfe.
