Great view of St. Paul’s, from One New Change – Every day
Directly across the road from St. Paul’s Cathedral is a shopping centre called One New Change, and if you ride the lift to the top floor then you can take in the view from their roof terrace. The panoramic view looks out across the city rooftops all the way to the London Eye, but the real treat is the Cathedral.
Peer into Buckingham Palace Gardens, from Wellington Arch – 2nd January to 29th December 2013
Where else can you legally peer into Buckingham Palace’s gardens? The arch’s two balconies offer a decent view down Constitution Hill, Hyde Park Corner, and the Duke of Wellington’s former residence at Apsley House. The interior of the arch houses an exhibition which explores the history of the arch and how it was built.
Great views from Westminster Cathedral’s bell tower – Every day
Westminster Cathedral’s bell tower is one of London’s most visible landmarks. The campanile rises more than 210 feet over the streets below, making it one of the city’s best viewing platforms. Its 360 degree views take in everything from the Houses of Parliament and Battersea Power Station, to the Shard of Light and Canary Wharf.
