A beautiful space on the top floors of the skyscraper at 20 Fenchurch Street, with tropical-looking gardens that are free to visit—but you must book ahead. It has the biggest amount of plants and the walls are all glass with a 360-degree view of the city. It’s a really special and inspiring place to explore and look out over east London and beyond. There are two restaurants and two bars up there. Fenchurch Restaurant, housed in a glass box within the glassed building, is great and really accommodating for veggies and vegans, with a special vegetarian menu, great wines, and great service. I’ve never heard music there though a live show would be great.
Have breakfast/lunch/drinks at the Skygarden - a garden high above the City.

“Speed boat up the Thames to see the Thames Barrier. Great fun on a sunny day. Set off from outside Big Ben and Parliament.”
“Afternoon Tea at Claridge’s Hotel, observing our nation’s culinary heritage for the best part of 150 years. For a century or more, our Executive Chefs have remained faithful to the classic combination of finger sandwiches, scones served warm, and sweet pastries. Our ingredients are painstakingly sourced, skilfully prepared and served fresh each day. The centrepiece of afternoon tea is, of course, the drink itself. Our wonderful tea connoisseur, Henrietta Lovell, has scoured the world to bring us delicious tea from small, little known producers from the four corners of the world. Working hand in hand with our Executive Chef, Martyn Nail.”
“This is a must see for all foodies, or even for the general vibe of London. It's BIG, and has amazing food and places to eat and graze.”
“Saturday (10am–5pm) & Sunday (11am–4pm) Various great gourmet street food vendors. More for Londoners than tourists. ”
“Duck under the arches behind Maltby Street and you'll arrive at Druid Street, a much more rough-and-ready street-food market. On this stretch, signs are few and far between so it helps to follow your nose. Pojang serves up authentic Korean street-food, Decatur has the best oyster po boys and Rock My Bowl's smoothie bowls manage to make breakfast genuinely exciting. The revolving weekly stalls mean you'll find new vendors every time. On our last visit we discovered Jake's Soul Spread selling incredible jams on their Druid Street debut. The treacle-thick salted butter with honey even comes with a soul and funk breakfast soundtrack.”
