Sky Garden, 20 Fenchurch Street (aka the “Walkie-Talkie” Building)

So we were really quite excited this week to be going to visit the recently-opened free public space on the 35th floor of the controversial “Walkie-Talkie” building in the heart of the City…

Plus, we’ve been exposed to (and by various means have acquired) so much Planes merchandise over the last couple of years that the main character, Dusty Crophopper, was already a household name for us.
