Default South Bank Tower London - 08-04-2014, 06:33

Hello all!

Obviously this isn't a north-west explore, but it's been so long since I posted anything on here, I just couldn't resist! I happened to be in London last week and spotted this skyscraper which just looked too tempting to ignore.

South Bank Tower (formerly King's Reach Tower) was completed in 1972 and for three decades was the headquarters of IPC Media, one of the biggest publishing companies in Europe. Now undergoing extensive redevelopment, the building is due for completion in 2015, as residential apartments and office space. Boring stuff over, the view from the top is amazing, and well worth the climb – if you get the opportunity, go for it!

Now on with the photos...

The rooftop of floor #30:

Looking east towards the Shard:


Down onto the OXO tower:


West across South Bank and the London Eye:


Looking south over Waterloo:


The eye again:


The Shard & Tower Bridge:


Thirty stories down:


And finally, moi looking towards St Pauls:


Hope you liked the pictures (despite all the smog)!
