The Walkie-Talkie: 20 Fenchurch Street is another of London’s famous landmarks also called ‘The Walkie-Talkie’ because of its rather '70's tech' shape. The 38-storey building is 525 ft tall and therefore it is the fifth tallest building in the City of London. The very top-floor is home to the 'Sky Garden' which opened its doors at the beginning of 2015. There are three restaurants to choose from: Fenchurch Street Bar and Grill (providing an outstanding dining experience with the finest ingredients), Darwin Brasserie (traditional British cuisine in prepared right in front of you) or SkyPod Bar (a cocktail destination with a London skyline to remember). There is no charge for visiting the Sky Garden, however, bookings are required and opening times are 7 days a week, from 10am-6pm on a weekday, 11am-9pm at the weekend.
