The tallest buildings of Olde London Town

In the heart of the city of London is the old Nat West Tower. It used to be the tallest building in Town. But all around it new buildings go up and across the river, the new Shard building laughs at it’s puniness – even with the bit extra built on top! But what we really want to see is the Gherkin, designed by Norman Foster, also known as 30 St Mary Axe, it is built on the site of the old Baltic Exchange, which was blown up by the IRA in the 1980s.
