I was at work yesterday, Friday. My friend Charlie knows how much I like to gaze out of the window at the setting sun, so yesterday he suggested we take a trip to the 10th floor (the top floor) and see the sunset there. Well by the time we'd got there and checked the coast was clear for us to venture onto the balcony we'd kind of missed the sun set, but hey what a view! It was amazing, up high looking out over London at some of the best landmarks; Parliament, Big Ben, the Wheel, the Bridges, the river, the Shard, the Gherkin, Canary Wharf, St Paul's and more. It was strange, as though floating over the city, the sounds were different I could hear trains crossing the bridges and other more mechanical sounds, no voices, no people. Quite beautiful.

Shame I didn't have a better camera, just my phone.


  1. Wow, what a great view on a beautiful day. I don't blame you getting distracted by the views. x p.s.I've left something for you on my blog :)

  2. Lovely view! I think you should return to the 10th floor with a proper camera - I know I would. Kristina

  3. Andrea, Thank you for your little surprise!

    Kristina, yes your right, I must. Though long story but our proper camera broke (kaput) so I'm saving for a new one - soon I hope!

    Thanks for your comments :)

  4. We are heading to London in June and I can not wait. Seeing these great pics have my heart all a flutter!

  5. Lovely pictures! The light in the top one is simply stunning.

  6. What an amazing view!!! I want to go back to London! Lucky you :)
