If your travels ever take you to London, a trip to the Sky Garden is a must. Set inside a glass dome, the space is made up of three stories of stunning landscaped gardens that show off a 360-degree view of the city, including breathtaking views of the Shard, the Gherkin and the River Thames.
Designed by award-winning landscape architecture firm, Gillespies, the space is made up of an array of horticulture usually not seen in London due to its climate. Warmer climate plants fill the terraced gardens to create an oasis within the city and complement the building’s unique interior.
Colourful flowering plants; including Agapanthus (African lilies) and Strelitzia (Birds of Paradise) blossom year-round, and aromatic herbs such as lavender and rosemary infuse the air with a fragrant scent. Creating an experience that is truly unforgettable.
