London from Vertigo bar atop Tower 42 (8 megs)

Approaching the 183m Tower 42, completed in 1980, and London's first true skyscraper:

Towards St Paul's, and beyond that, London's busy and vibrant West End:

Zoomed in at St Paul's:

Looking east towards Canary Wharf, with the Gherkin in the foreground:

Norman Foster's Moorhouse building, Citipoint on the right, and the Barbican towers behind:

Heron Tower is now almost complete to its 202m roof (though a spire will take it to 230m):

My night shots of London didn't come out too well, but the views were lovely. This shot of Tower 42's rather swanky lobby was taken on my way out:

Nice pictures! Although El Greco's are much better.

In the picture below, I thought they have already demolished Bucklersbury House to make way for Walbrook Square?

Beautiful shots, particularly Canary Wharf. St Paul's looks a little hemmed in . . .

Great photos. Glad you highlighted Finsbury Circus - a very dignified oasis in the heart of The City.

Very nice and, very importantly, not very common views.
