Eye-Catching Architecture

London may be associated with the gentle curves of St Paul’s Cathedral, but modern architecture is ascendant, with all manner of curiously named and strikingly shaped edifices rising amid the city’s Instagram-worthy skyline. The Norman Foster–designed Gherkin was an early pioneer (est. 2004), and its Searcy at the Gherkin still offers some of the city’s best views. The bar and restaurant are open only to members, but keep an eye out for regular public events, including Beach Hut Pop-Up Bar and Open Nights. As for the current tallest building, the crown goes to The Shard, which has an observation deck with 360-degree views for 40 miles, plus six restaurants and bars to relax in. Another recently revived landmark is King’s Cross station—a multi-million-pound renovation that has seen its Victorian-era architecture restored to new glory.
