This free destination is well worth a visit - although tickets are timed we went in early and stayed as long as we wished. Busy, but big enough to absorb the crowds. Many comfortable seating areas amongst the vegetation.

I visited on Monday, April 2. I met two rude guards in the rain. I was told to come back after six any night if I do not have a reservation.

Revisited on Thursday, April 5 at 5:50 p.m. And was told to come back at 6:30 as there was a private event and the guard was rude again.

I went back at 6:30 and waited in a line. At 7, I went up to the front and was told the Sky Garden was at capacity and they had know idea how long the wait would be.

Very poor planning. The guards should not be rude to the public. And should not tell the public that we can get in at 6 or 6:30 as it is impossible.

The guards should learn some manners and not work with the public if they can not be polite.

Visited here yesterday with two of my chums. I had been before but the two friends hadn't. Very impressed with the fact that it is free. Shame it was so windy as the exterior terrace has to close but you do still get a very good impression of the City generally when looking out over all four different views. Points of interest are highlighted on the windows such as direction of Wembley Stadium and the Barbican which helps. Glass of Prosecco is 10 pounds but I have to say it is expected to pay that sort of price especially considering where you are.

Wow! Pretty impressive and there’s a bar too. Great views of the city. Watch for new timings (released every Monday), time your visit carefully and you can benefit from views of the city both in daylight and at night. We arrived at 7pm and left at 8pm - perfect. A pint of Sam Miguel and a disarano & coke were 15 quid but a. this is London & b. it was free to get in so I can’t grumble, at all. Would book & do it again.
