One of the first skyscraper built in the British capital, with its 183 meters, it was until 1990 the tallest building of the UK. Today it is the third tallest skyscraper in the city and the eighth in the entire city of London.
Headquartered of financial companies, offices and businesses, it also houses a 24 floor restaurant, while at 42nd floor is the famous Vertigo 42, a well-known and elegant stylish champagne bar, that offers breathtaking panoramic views across London.
