The Londoner: Out and About at Sky Garden

I decided that i'm going to go back in time and share a little bit about the interesting places i've come across in London now that I live here. It's not gonna be a glowing post with details and local color because i made this venture ages ago, however, I will try my best to type up some context so you don't feel completely lost. 

I was doing a bit of research on interesting places to be in London and came across this thing called Sky Gardens. At first glance from the images i thought this is too lavish for me to even make an attempt to find the funds to visit, however, by some miracle the amazing location was a free entry spot. Immediately I booked several spaces for my friend group and notified them of our epic plan. 

We arrived at the underground station and took a stroll down Fentchurch street. After waiting in a queue for what seemed like forever and passing Airport level security, We finally made it to the lift to head upstairs to the gardens. I was delightfully amazed at the seamless blend of modern sleek architectural design and plant life. It was truly an amazing spot and I can confirm that images do not do the location justice.

After taking in the view, We decided to walk around and see exactly what the rooftop paradise had to offer. Honestly, it was amazing. from every angle of the gardens you could see some breathtaking view of London. The entire city was laid out like a tiny card because you could see every end. It really brought things into perspective. When you're so high things that seemed so large and difficult to maneuver no longer seem so large and problematic. If you're visiting London, it's definitely a venue that you should explore. It's nice for dates (hint hint) and it's an amazing spot for photographs.

The trip to sky gardens was a much needed reward after an interesting first year of University. It was actually my last outing with my friends before I went home to Antigua for the summer. But it was definitely worth it and was truly an awesome bonding experience.

I've actually run out of words I believe, but here are some photos which show how much fun we had that day.
