Sky Garden opens at the top of the Walkie Talkie

Posted on by Offices.org.uk

A NEW “Sky Garden” has opened at the top of the new Walkie Talkie skyscraper in the City of London.

The space at the top of 20 Fenchurch Street, as its officially known, contains restaurants, bars and an indoor “garden”.

It can also be visited for free by members of the public who book online, although available slots have quick been snapped up.

The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alan Yarrow, was present for the official opening ceremony which also marked the completion of the building. The 34-storey skyscraper contains 668,926 square feet of office space.

The striking addition to the City skyline hit the headlines last year when sun light was bouncing off of it and “melting” objects in the street below.

Social media users have been quick to share their photos from inside the Sky Garden.
