The Sky Garden is London’s highest public garden and absolutely free to enter.

Located at an exhilarating 155 metres above ground level at 20 Fenchurch Street, the

Sky Garden offers visitors a unique fusion of nature, art and panoramic views of the

city of London. 

Take a short lift ride up to the Sky Garden, upon exiting you are greeted by the

gorgeous skyline of London while you stand amidst the diverse array of shrubbery

and plants within the Sky Garden. There are many seating areas to enjoy the best of

these two worlds with this glass encased sanctuary. There is an open air balcony for

the brave where you can take in visible landmarks such as the Gherkin, the Shard,

Tower Bridge, the London eye, Canary Wharf, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Thames.
