As with most people there when we visited, we had a prepaid Groupon voucher. However, even though we would've left a tip, we probably wouldn't have left the 12.5% requested which the staff as-bold-as-brass presented to us before we left. It's not a particularly easy...More

The old Nat West Tower now Houses a very nice restaurant and a Champagne Bar. The restaurant is superb, great food, great service and amazing views. Highly recommended.

Staff was friendly on the phone. Nearest tube is Monument. Lovely view from the top and afternoon tea is worth the price from Groupon (offered at the time I went)

We had a pre-booked and menu-of-the-day family celebration here in July. We were well looked after. Excellent meal. Courteous service. Spectacular site. I thoroughly recommend it.

Absolutely amazing view, however the lift is a little bit scary as you can hear the wind! However once I got up there it’s breath taking! Lovely champagne and scones but the sandwiches could have been a little better! All in all very enjoyable

The view is what draws you here. The finger food is not great and the drinks are over priced for the quality. Make sure you have the right company with you to enjoy and share the experience of the view at night.

Totally disappointed lacking any attention to detail service there was none, they seriously need to up the quality if they are to survive can’t just rely on the view. The OXO tower , Heron tower and Shard amongst others blow T42 out of the game.

“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
