London’s skyline is constantly changing, and now there’s four ways to take it all in. What’s even better? It won’t cost you a penny. All four venues are free! Save the money you were going to spend on the London Eye.

All venues offer an unobstructed view of the city and no matter the weather, it promises a memorable experience. From this height, you’ll get to see London’s landmarks in a whole new light, including the historic Tower of London and the graceful arches of Tower Bridge. On clear days, Canary Wharf in the east comes into view, showcasing the city’s ever-evolving skyline.

You’ll also find a bird’s-eye view of the winding streets leading to Bank junction, with St. Paul’s Cathedral standing tall amidst it all. Plus, you can keep an eye on the unique Walkie Talkie building and also view the ongoing construction in the locality. Horizon 22 is the highest free viewing platform in all of Europe.

The four venues in order of tallest to shortest are:

1. Horizon 22

2. The Lookout

3. Sky Garden

4. The Garden at 120
