If you’re planning a day in the City of London, we highly recommend a visit to the capital’s newest (and highest) viewing gallery, The Lookout, at 8 Bishopsgate.

Situated on the 50th floor, you can enjoy spectacular views from the 2,500 sq ft viewing gallery.

Tickets are free and we strongly recommend you book in advance. The Lookout is open seven days a week with later closing times on Mondays and Fridays – perfect for capturing some sunset views of the capital.

8 Bishopsgate is also known as the Jenga building due to its irregular shape.

Whilst you’re in the area, you may like to visit Spitalfields, the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Barbican or the Whitechapel Gallery.
