The Sky Garden & Borough Markets

Jake and I have been talking about visiting the Sky Garden for a while now and we finally got it together to book tickets. The Sky garden is situated at 20 Fenchurch Street, or as most people refer to it as the Walkie Talkie...yes, London loves to give its buildings ridiculous names, but it really does look like a big Walkie Talkie is the middle of London. It is offers 360 degree panoramic views across the city of London. The best part is that it's absolutely free to visit all you have to do is book timed tickets on their website. We headed over London Bridge which was rather windy but had a great view of the Walkie Talkie building....can you spot it?!

I love the way the Walkie Talkie Building looks against the old English buildings, and the fact that history is blended in a ultra-modern city

As soon as you step out of the lift, you are immediately greeted with stunning views of the Shard and the River Thames, we could even spot the apartment we live in! The Sky Garden is the highest public garden in London and it has the most beautiful interior, it really feels as though you have just walked into a tropical garden.

It was nice to wonder around and relax while we thought about the hustle and bustle of London city below us. You can find The Sky Pod bar where you can grab a drink whilst admiring the views, there is also a restaurant and cafe if you fancy grabbing something to eat. Be sure to head to the outside area which is the perfect place for viewing and photo opportunities and no doubt many wedding proposals! I brought a berry mojito and I have to say it's the best one I have ever tried. I could imagine this being the ultimate location for after work drinks on a Friday night!

After the Sky Garden we headed over to one of our favorite spots in London to grab a bite to eat, the Borough Markets! Jake and I are both "foodies" we love this place and always stop in if we are close by. For "foodies" and non-"foodies" alike, this is the place you want to be. Lots of gourmet food and fresh produce to buy as well as, freshly pressed juices, oysters, cheeses and locally brewed ciders, they have it all!

The best thing about the Borough Markets is getting to try lots of things, rather than just one dish. Be sure to grab yourself a filled cream doughnut or chocolate brownie from Bread Ahead its the best we have ever tried and always pick up a few to take home with us. 

If you fancy lunch somewhere bursting with atmosphere then the Borough Markets is the place to go. Without a doubt, of all of the places in London that I’ve discovered so far, Borough Market is by far one of my favorite!
