The early 2000s saw a boom in skyscrapers in London’s city centre, and the title didn’t stay in one place much during that time. That is, not until 2012 when The Shard was completed. It is one of the defining features of the London skyline silhouette at night and can be seen from many different locations across the city.
The Cheesegrater at 122 Leadenhall Street, stands at 225 metres tall, making it one of the tallest skyscrapers in the Square Mile. The tapered design of the building was made to preserve views of St Paul’s Cathedral which gave it he appearance of a cheesegrater.
Officially called 30 St Mary Axe, is the iconic structure known as The Gherkin. The distinctive cigar shape makes it easily recognisable in the London skyline, towering 180m in the heart of the city’s primary financial district.
The fifth tallest building in the City of London is at 20 Fenchurch Street and is nicknamed the ‘Walkie Talkie’ due to its distinctive top-heavy shape.
One of the most historic buildings which has been defining London’s skyline for over 300 years is St. Paul’s Cathedral. Completed in 1708, the Anglican cathedral is a world-renowned structure with a vast dome reaching a height of 111 meters. It sits within the central City of London, atop Ludgate Hill and northeast of Blackfriars.
