Here are some of our favourite London views — perfect for ogling when you're squished into the tube like a sardine.
From atop hills
Head for the hills, and you're pretty much guaranteed a view down on the city. Sometimes it's like you're arriving in London for the first time.
Staring down a street
Sometimes — while London whirls around you — you'll just stare down a street, boulevard (or even a canal), and be struck by a picture perfect moment.
Despite assumptions otherwise, Greater London is only roughly 40% concrete, steel and tarmac.
From man-made marvels
Sometimes what occurs naturally just isn't enough for us. Intrepid architects and designers have built incredible spots for us to see out over the rest of the city.
Some people mistakenly think that the best view in London is from the top of The Shard. Way up on floor 72, they take panoramic photos of London. Then nature comes calling, and that's when they discover something even better.
