The Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street spans three floors and offers uninterrupted views across the City of London. Served by two express lifts, visitors arrive to a beautiful landscaped garden with a viewing area, terrace, café, bar and restaurant. The Sky Garden in London is a truly unique space and has been designed to create an open and vibrant place of leisure, offering visitors a rare chance to experience London from a different viewpoint. Experience stunning food theatre and enjoy seasonal plates of classically British cuisine, with unobstructed views day and night.
The famous enlarged glass dome of 20 Fenchurch Street is dedicated to three storeys of exquisitely landscaped public gardens and London’s most exclusive social spaces, including observation decks and an open air terrace.
The Sky Garden was meant to be a free public space with the most spectacular views of London. But it feels like you’re trapped in an airport, you can barely see the city because of a steel cage – and the more money you shell out, the worse it gets. Sky Garden boasts three storeys of landscaped gardens lush with South African and Medterranean plants, observation decks, an open-air terrace, two restaurants, a bar and an uninterrupted panorama of the city’s skyline. Entry is free, but visitors must book their 90-minute timeslot at least three days in advance on the Sky Garden website.
The free-to-access Sky Garden, occupying the top three floors of Rafael Vinoly’s 37 storey, 525ft 20 Fenchurch Street (aka the Walkie Talkie), gives diners several different dining spaces and beautiful landscaped gardens at the top of one of London’s landmark buildings. Visitors to the Sky Garden will arrive by express lift at a beautiful landscaped garden at level 35 designed by award-winning landscape architects Gillespies. A bar serving champagne and canapés, a chic brasserie and viewing area can be found at level 36, and a public terrace, seafood bar and grill restaurant and cafe at level 37. The food is by “rhubarb” who also run Gallery Mess at Saatchi Gallery, “rhubarb” at the Royal Albert Hall, and Bond & Brook by “rhubarb” at Fenwick. The company also works with Michelin starred chef Heston Blumenthal and will be offering events at 20 Fenchurch Street. Visitors have the option to visit the Sky Garden without dining but booking must be made online at least three days in advance. Be sure to read the terms and conditions too – security restrictions include only liquids of less than 100ml and no bags larger than 8 x 17 x 19 inches.
