London Sky Garden | Breakfast In London’s Sky Pod
This post is rather late or published way behind schedule, but where the hey… Having made plans to head out to Portsmouth for last year’s Valentines and seeing those plans fumbled due to weather situations this year’s Valentine’s Day was a much low key affair due to a pending house move. You can read about last years belated Valentines Day celebrations while discovering the secrets of the Solent at the beautiful Spitbank Fort here.
With a pending house, weekends were busy with sorting out what to pack, when to pack and what to get rid of so when Valentine’s Day approached it was really just an opportunity to chill out and get out of the flat and enjoy a moment of peace not thinking about the house move.
A great start to the Saturday too was a trip to none other than the newly opened exotic garden up high in one of London’s stunning skyscapper decorating the city’s square mile. The infamous building that made headlines last summer for burning anything in sight due to the heat that was generated or reflected off the Walkie Talkie building.
Perfect Views Over Breakfast In London’s Sky Garden
Breakfast was booked in the Sky Pod on the 35th floor. There are 2 more restaurants on offer on the 35th Floor of the building. All give you access to the Sky Garden with 360 degrees of uninterrupted vies of views across London. You can circle round the entire floor to view Canary Wharf, Westend with the London Eye, south side of the Thames with the Shard and London beyond.
There are two options to access the Sky Garden, via the free tickets on offer or by booking a table in one of the 3 restaurants. All of which are available from a week in advance to a month’s waiting time. The free tickets currently have a 2-month waiting list so its best to book a table. The Sky Pod is reasonably priced and so are the other two for what is offered.
In addition to the absolutely priceless views of the capital.This is an absolute must if passing through London or if you are a Londoner yourself. Beautiful place to watch the sunset too as it turns into a little cocktail bar as the day wears on.
