30 St Mary Axe The Gherkin
30 St Mary Axe The Gherkin London Reviews
Jul 08, 2007
In 2001 which was my 1st time to London, I was lucky to make a photo shot during the constuction phrase of the Gherkin. "The Gherkin" also as known as "30 St Mary Axe", which is a building right located at the financial district of London. Also enclosed a 2003 pictures that shown an after built outlook. Plus an aerial view of the Gherkin while my flight is on its way to land at London Heathrow...
I tried to get to the top level at the 40th floor at one time but it was not successful, there is a bar for tenants and their guests featuring an unrivaled 360° view of London. Also there is a restaurant operates on the 39th floor, and private dining rooms on the 38th.
On the way landing at London Heathrow from the west to the east, you just won't miss the building since it is clearly visible from a long distance.
Also it is noticible in the background of the several movies and TV series such as Love Actually, The Losers, The Christmas Invasion, Match Point, Basic Instinct 2, and etc...
