During my last visit to London I got the chance to take a look inside London City Hall. Apart from splendid views across Tower Bridge and the financial district, it also has one of London’s most famous staircases.
City Hall was designed by Norman Foster and opened in 2002 and its unusual, bulbous shape certainly stands out among the other buildings.
The open viewing deck at the top of the ten-storey building is only open during “Open House London” and you will have to queue and undergo a security check (think airport) to get in. But it is so worth it…
Inside, I wasn’t the only one being mesmerised by the staircase and getting the camera out. It turned out to be a bit of a challenge to get a clear view of the features and odd shape of the staircase.
