Sky Garden

KidRated’s Sky Garden Top Tips:

  • With three different places to eat, it’s great if you want a meal with a view
  • In winter, coordinate your visit with the sunset for an extra special view
  • Don’t forget your camera, the outdoor terraces are great for photo ops

Want to see great views of London in one of the city’s most famous skyscrapers for free? It sounds almost too good to be true, but the Sky Garden at the top of the iconic Walkie Talkie building is exactly what you’re looking for. This place is epic!


If you loved the View from The Shard, then the Sky Garden should definitely be next on your list of tall buildings to visit. Not only is there a great view but the viewing area is full of beautiful plants.


From the top of the building, found right in the heart of the city, you will be able to see views of St Paul’s, the Shard, the Thames and many other London landmarks.


Sky Garden doesn’t look too shabby on the old Instagram as well!

Teen Verdict

Family days out, attractions and things to do in London and beyond for kids, older kids and teenagers rated by kids and teens with KidRated


I can’t believe this place exists. I’ve lived in London my whole life and never knew about. After coming here with a friend, I can’t stop recommending it enough. I booked up (for free!) for me and my friend to go because we both wanted to hangout somewhere cool that didn’t cost us loads of money. We loved it! Amazing views of London and the lush plants added so much to the experience. This is a must do.

  • It’s fantastic we can visit for free but be prepared to book well in advance and bring passports for airport-style security to enter.
  • You can’t bring a picnic but families are welcome at the Sky Pod cafe. It’s not that pricey and getting a cuppa and a cake is a good excuse to stay for longer and admire those views.
  • The outside viewing area is totally safe and is fun for taking photos of other attractions.
  • The toilets are by the lifts and are unisex individual cubicles.

    We love it here. It’s really special. The views are amazing and there is lots of space to run around. Mum told me to say the cocktail bar is her favourite bit.
