Description

Sitting at over 300 metres (1,000ft) high, London’s tallest landmark has an incredible 72 habitable floors, boasts 11,000 panes of glass and from the top the breathtaking 360 degree views over London and the surrounding counties extend for up to 40 miles on a clear day.

As well as entry to this popular attraction, this great-value break also includes accommodation at a 4-star, centrally-located hotel and return rail travel as well as free time to explore London at your leisure.
