Before you can visit the Sky Gardens, you have to book a table in advance. They allow two hour spots, so we decided to book our table between 08.15 and 10.15, which was the perfect time to watch as the sun set over London. Luckily, the night we booked was pretty clear so we were able to get a good view of the sunset, and it looked absolutely amazing as it set over the London skyline.
The cocktails were a little pricey at £12.50 a glass, although I thought this was pretty justified considering entry into the Sky Gardens is completely free. I bought a cocktail called ‘The Pink One’ which was supposed to come out with candy floss although they’d unfortunately run out of candy floss during my visit so they replaced it with a flower and blackberry. It still looked and tasted amazing. I would have loved to have tried some more of the cocktails but as a student currently saving up for my flat next year, I couldn’t justify spending another £12.50.
If you’re visiting London, on a budget or just looking for something to do, I’d definitely recommend visiting the Sky Gardens. I had an amazing couple of hours with such an amazing view and I definitely plan on going back sometime.
