Is Sky Garden London free? Yes, but there’s a catch. Here is a list of things you should know about this public park on top of a commercial skyscraper.
1. Where can I find the Sky Garden?
The public garden is located inside of 20 Fenchurch Street, a 160 meters high commercial skyscraper in the historic financial district of City of London. You can access it via Philpot Lane. The entrance is in the south west corner. Underground Station: Monument.
2. When does it open?
The Sky Garden London opens between 10 am and 6 pm on weekdays and 11 am to 9 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
3. How big is the garden?
It extends over the top three floors of the building. You can access the park via two express lifts. The Sky Garden includes a large viewing area, a terrace, a bar and two restaurants.
4. Is Sky Garden London free to visit?
Yes. But you need to pre-register before your visit. Children under 16 years old must be accompanied by a person who is over 18 years old. No more than three children per adult are allowed. Tickets are only valid for the time allocated. So make sure to arrive on time!
5. Is there a dress code for the Sky Garden?
If you visit the park during the day no rules for dress code apply. However, if you plan on visiting one of the restaurants you should wear smart casual.
6. Are there any other things I should know before my visit to Sky Garden London?
The owners like to promote the Sky Garden London as a park in the sky. Probably the term “park” is a little bit misleading. You shouldn’t expect a second Kew Garden. However, this place is still special as it was designed by a landscape architect. And no matter what you think of it, the view is still great!
