Garden at 120


London's largest roof garden, The Garden at 120 is a blossoming 15th-floor pocket park paradise. Its mid-rise vantage point gives a unique perspective on nearby skyscrapers, with up-close views of the Walkie Talkie, Gherkin and the Lloyd’s Building. Booking isn't required, making this a good alternative if you can't get into the Sky Garden.
