A few minutes walk from the painted views of St Paul's in the Guildhall Art Gallery in my last post, the real St Paul's can be seen for yourself.
There are many different viewpoints:
...from street level.
...reflected in street furniture.
...from inside One New Change Shopping Centre, Cheapside.
...reflected in the glass walls of One New Change.
Up high on top of One New Change shopping centre there is a public roof terrace with amazing views:
...of St Paul's with a bus passing by
...the London Eye, you can just make out Big Ben
...the Shard to the South East
...the old, new and yet to be built, to the West
...to the South, you can just make out the Crystal Palace mast
...and back to St Paul's
These views can be seen for free from the roof of the One New Change roof terrace open seven days a week.
It seems to be a bit of a secret, I haven't met many people who know it's there. It wasn't busy either time I went, even in half term. Having moaned about going, my ten year old ran out of the lift, on to the terrace proclaiming it to be 'cool!'
