The Heron Tower is another glass fronted building in the City of London, but in an interesting way, it adds to the skyline, especially at sunset when viewed from the east.

Hi, sorry just seen your question - only access if you are eating or drinking and no outside space. My suggestion would be to go to The Shard amazing views ...... Thanks
