Lunch at 30 St Mary Axe
Richard, who works in the building, kindly invited Joseph and I up to the top of 30 St Mary Axe for lunch. The building is one of my favorite in London. An exquisitely detailed tower that appears contemporary in a way that fits beautifully in London. The tower's jewel like qualities bring to mind the traditional jewelery and ornament found in the various palaces and galleries of England. It appears as an enormous precious object in the centre of London.
The rooftop bar is located at the top of the tower and crowned by a glass dome. It is a beautiful space with fantastic views of London and it was a fantastic and unexpected opportunity to be in this space as it is not open to the public.
