Visited this restaurant for high tea. Approach to this 42nd floor restaurant is spooky and in case of fire escape may be hair raising and frightening. Ambiance in the restaurant is very good, views of London excellent but quality of high tea hopeless. Not worth...More

The 'experience' of having a drink and some nibbles while peering out across the London skyline seems appealing, especially for a nosey Londoner like me. How has it all changed? Sadly, this experience did not live up to my expectations of how the experience is...More

Came here with a Groupon deal. The views are great (ask for a seat overlooking st Paul's or city). The food and service was very disappointing. I would not recommend it to anyone else. Also there is a £4 service charge after leaving.

Your experience here will vary considerably depending on where you are sat. The westward view looking across central London includes St Paul’s cathedral, the BT tower, Parliament and the river. Those unfortunate enough to be facing north will be treated to rather less exciting views...More

We visited vertigo 42 for afternoon tea and found the experience a joy, the view over London was spectacular. The food was first class and the staff were always on hand to bring more Tea when required. Could not fault it.
