As promised, I am clambering up high to give you an aerial glimpse of London. I plan to take you to a different viewpoint each month in 2017.
January took us to the outdoor gallery at St Paul’s Cathedral; February took us onto a rooftop terrace close to St Paul’s; in March we sailed west along the Thames and up in a cable car; this month we are high above the Thames opposite St Paul’s.
The recent extension to the Tate Modern gallery provides a 360° viewing terrace on the 10th floor. I spent the sunset period up there the other evening, popping inside for my cup of tea while I waited for the sun to drop.
Entrance is free, but donations are encouraged to support this inspiring art gallery. There’s also a handy skyline guide available for £2. My tips: 1) don’t miss this viewpoint, and 2) the lifts get extremely full, so go to the ground floor to catch one.
