EXPLORING THE SKY GARDEN


I've got a huuuuge bucket list of places that I want to visit in London and it's taking me a while to find the time (and funds) to do all of it. This week however, I managed to tick three things off of the list! These being: eating at The Breakfast Club and visiting Junkyard Golf and The Sky Gardens. I've wanted to go to The Sky Gardens especially for the longest time, so I was so excited when I finally got the chance to visit with friends this week. I of course ended up snapping a hell of a lot of photos, so I thought I'd compile a few of them into a little post.



Visiting slots for The Sky Gardens get booked up pretty quickly (which is why it's taken me so long to actually get my diary sorted out and manage to plan a visit!). You have to book your slot about three weeks in advance in order to get a space and you can do so via their website. It's completely free to book and visit, which is the best bonus ever! All you have to pay for is any food or drinks which you want when you reach the top.

There's a small selection of places to get food and drinks in The Sky Gardens. We opted to just grab a coffee and some cakes from the Floor 35 Bar, however there are a couple of other restaurants upstairs which offer more fine dining. You get the coffee in a little takeaway cup which reads 'Happiness is a hot drink and this view' which I loved! The atmosphere is really laid back in the day, so it was definitely lovely to relax and sip on some caffeine while looking over drizzly London from above.

I can image that the views from The Sky Garden are ever changing depending on the time of day and year that you go visit. We were lucky enough to see London all clouded over and shrouded in grey, with fat droplets of water falling against the glass windows, shortly followed by the clouds parting and views of London's building peeking out below blue skies. Both views were completely different. I can't wait to return again some time soon and see what the sunset and evening views have to offer!

  2. I've been to the Shard but not the Sky Gardens - it's definitely a closer-up view that the Shard so you see more detail - I'll have to try and get some tickets and check it out. You photos look great, thanks for sharing. x
