I like to look at it as if I'm paying £10 admission and getting a free glass of wine.

Any of you visitors to London need to google 'Vertigo 42' and make a reservation... there isn't a long waiting list. You can call them up on the day and they usually can fit you in.

That's Greenwich Hill and certainly one of the best views, even though the Shard looks good in almost any long distance view.

The tower has a beautiful and sexy design. It is great that it will be built keeping in mind all the modern day problems. It looks impressive.

@Mossy22

That first one reminds me of the ultra realistic render on the shards website- they are taken from very similar positions in the air.

And @SO143 perhaps you aren't the best person to ask, but do you (or anyone else) know where that tewalker night shot was taken from? Looks incredible, I've never seen a place like that in London.

It's Campbell, Zogolovitch, Wilkinson & Gough's The Circle on Queen Elizabeth Street, completed in 1999.

No tower, but about 7 storeys high.
