Our Favourite Views in London – Where to find a Panoramic Glimpse of the City

January 02, 2020

We believe the view from the windows of our signature rooms at Tower Suites is one of the best in London. However, we can’t deny that the city has some pretty spectacular landscapes elsewhere, so we’ve compiled a list of our favourites to help you out: this one’s for the people-watchers among you.


The Gherkin

The Gherkin London

The Gherkin itself plays a key part in making London’s iconic skyline. From the 39th and 40th floors you can look out right into the heart of the Centre while being a part of the skyline yourself.

Primrose Hill

One of the finest green spaces London has to offer, this compact village-esque area comes top of the list of places you can visit for free to get a view of the breath-taking landscape.

Greenwich Park

Greenwich Park

In the gardens of what used to be a royal palace is the look-out point, facing straight across the river at Canary Wharf and the surrounding 17th century architecture. Come for the view and stay for the traditional pie and mash shop by the independent market

The London Eye

The London Eye

This one needs no introduction- the London Eye has been the foremost sightseeing spot for tourists and locals alike for over two decades.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

St-Paul-Cathedral-London

The Anglican Cathedral boasts a 360-degree view of the busy city life.

ArcelorMittal Orbit London

ArcelorMittal Orbit London

Perhaps the most unusual way to get a beautiful view of the city: the ArcelorMittel Orbit was built for the London 2012 Olympic Games, and now offers visitors a chance to use their viewing platform followed by a ride down the world’s longest tunnel slide.

Sky Garden

Sky Garden London

The Sky Garden on the 40th floor of the walkie-talkie building is a chic indoor green space, perfect for those looking for a view of the city with a flair. Serving everything from champagne to smoothies, the Sky Garden is free for an hour’s visit but be sure to book well in advance!

Our four and five-star properties are centrally located with convenient transport links a short walk away, making them some of the best hotels in London for a wintry visit to the capital.
