It was a good piece of contemporary architecture when we first visited it a few years ago - and it remains to be. Much more interesting than most office buildings around (with a notable exception of Lloyds). And it is in no way awkward or...More
The Gherkin is part of a mix of buildings that, although massively varied in age, style, material etc., seem to work. Seeing it in the same view as the Tower of London shows the great blend, and up close it appears taller than it is.

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
I have known for large groups to go up to the top floor however I would contact the reception in advance as the levels of security are tight and they would need to assess whether it’s possible for such a large group
