The Sky Garden is a public space on the 35 top floor of 20 Fenchurch street, in the heart of the City. I wouldn’t call it a garden, as you might be disappointed if you go there expecting to visit a garden, but more a 360 degree spot with great view across the City of London. The entrance is free but you’ll need to book it on their website in advance. They do have a pricey restaurant with unanimous reviews advising you to avoid it. Go there for the view and for the wander around, that’s worth the sight (But remember not for their restaurant!)
The Tower of London, officially Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London is open to public all week long and all year long! ( • Adult / 16+ years old: £21.5 • Childs / 5-15 years old: £9.70 )
Inside the fortress you can:
•See the world most famous jewels : the Crown Jewels (still used in Royal Ceremonies)
•Walk in the footsteps of those condemned to death by order of the state; in Green Tower.
•Watch the ravens, known as the guardian’s Tower (It is said the kingdom and the Tower will fall if the six resident ravens ever leave the fortress. Today you have 6 ravens + one spare!)
So that’s what you should expect from Tower of London. If you are a family it’s a place to go as you will find entertaining and interesting activities for everyone.
By sunny day it’s the perfection destination and the right place to take a boat till Westminster or Greenwich.
For history with a modern twist, go to ice-skate in winter. Open till the 2 January.
