More info: Despite being one of the oldest cities in the world, London’s skyline has been constantly changing after fire, war and remodelling. Tower 42 was really the first proper London skyscraper. It was built in 1980 and is still among the tallest buildings at 183m. It was initially built to house the NatWest bank, and when viewed from above its layout resembles the NatWest logo. One Canada Square in Canary Wharf stands at 240m and held the title of tallest building in the UK for 20 years. 30 St Mary Axe – usually called by its nickname The Gherkin, was built in 2003. It stands at 180m tall and is one of London’s most iconic landmarks.
Other strange shaped buildings include the ‘The Walkie-Talkie’ at 20 Fenchurch Street and ‘The Cheese Grater in Leadenhall Street. The building that currently dominates the London skyline like no other is The Shard, built in 2012 and standing at 309m.
