Skylon’s triple height picture windows provide panoramic views along the river.
Skylon captures the creative energy and excitement of London in the 21st century.
Helena Puolakka is one of the shining stars among female Head Chefs. Her lightness of touch and love of presentation, as well as her Finnish origins- come to the fore in the main restaurant, all day dining in the Grill and an excellent children’s menu.
