Visited with a group of friends at 6:15, only to find viewing platform shuts at 6 and practically all tables reserved in the skypod bar despite us making a booking online this does not mean that you have booked a space apparently. Just make sure you book a table in advance. Finally found a seating area only to be moved on after 10 mins to make room for a band.
Sofa seating is a bit shabby and needs a good clean.
View is good but restricted by the amount of people all having to try and get shots from the staircase due to the platform being shut.
Loads of toilets out of order so big queues.
Bar had limited menu of drinks and very limited food.
Staff were all very welcoming and friendly.

Fabulous family activity, made even more enjoyable because admission is FREE!
Would recommend visiting Sky Gardens to anyone who wants to see panoramic views of our capital city. The views are simply breath taking. We enjoyed a clear day and therefore got uninterrupted views of London's skyline.
This is an amazing place that everyone should visit.

Lots of fun, with views down onto the roof tops of London in all directions. We found it helped up work out where were, where we had been and orientate ourselves. Top tip: bring your own binoculars to watch the workmen on nearby buildings! Fascinating to watch nearby skyscrapers under construction.

I know that it's called the Sky Garden, but I didn't think there was actually a garden up there, but there is and it is a rather beautiful one. Most people go there for the view and it is pretty spectacular. We went on a very wet day, when you weren't allowed to go on the terrace, but it was still good. There are a couple of bars/cafes there, but there are quite expensive. My only criticism is the toilets. There are 7 enclosed toilets for men and women, which is not really enough for the amount of people in the Sky Garden. As the sinks are in the toilet cubicles, that takes up more time and means the queue to the toilets is long. If only they had put the sinks outside, it would have halved the waiting time. Also when I was there, the disabled toilet was out of action. Too bad if you're in a wheelchair and want to use the facilities.
