All are welcome but you all need to come at the same time, you will be given a 60 minute tour to the top of the jump form if you have a real head for heights. The skyline is amazing. Late July would be the best time as the structure will be complete.
The smaller of the two buildings (the FAB) tops out on 29th June

Pic I took this afternoon, in the boiling summer heat. Looking very prominent from the South Bank now, and there are still 2 or 3 floors to go -
