The elevator was terrifying but that's me and I am sure many would be fine with it but I am not a fan of elevators..

Early evening is a must. What a beautiful sight. You can see the stark contrast between the generation and wealth of the North and the forgotten South. It's rather emotive and I'm not even a real Londoner! Be prepared to fight for the good views, it gets busy but well worth it!more
