View over some of London’s most iconic buildings. After St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower 42 is the grand old lady of tall buildings here, having been first occupied in 1980, with the Lloyds building following in ’86. It seems impossible to think of the City of London now without the Gherkin (30 St Mary Axe) which was only completed 11 years ago in 2004. Now these well-known buildings have been joined by others to create a new skyline, the glass of these superstructures reflecting the silvered morning light.
From left to right, the buildings here are the London Eye; 20 Fenchurch Street (the Walkie Talkie); 54 Lombard Street (left of Willis Building); The Willis Building; The Lloyds Building; St Pauls Cathedral; 122 Leadenhall Street (Cheesegrater); St. Helens (previously Aviva Tower); 30 St Mary Axe; Tower 42; 6 Bevis Marks; The St Botolph Building; 99 Bishopsgate; the Heron Tower; the Barbican and CityPoint.
