Wow that last shot was like a still from a movie of the futuristic London. Looking forward to going up to the observation deck.

I showed my brother that picture, and he could not believe that was London.

I don't dislike it but I don't find that building so special either. It is nice building of course.

At last! London get's a building that offers a very good 360degree view of the wonderful city below.

One thing that concerns me about the observation floors though (I'm sure this has already been noted/mentioned before) is that the glass barriers seem startlingly low and relatively easy to climb over. Plus there are finger holds in the square mesh and foot holds in the metal work that would enable suicidal people to achieve this. I am only judging by the photos and have not visited there personally but (correct me if I am wrong) I think it will be only a matter of time before someone throws themselves off the top.

Isn't that a bit fetched. Btw, that wouldn't be nice for the window cleaners.

Don't like the cheap barb wire look at the top of the glass.
