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...

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