Looking for a restaurant with the wow factor to impress a date? Or maybe a sunny spot for a chilled out brunch?
Escape the city grind by heading upwards to London's highest restaurants, where the most stunning views across the capital can be found.
Make sure you have a head for heights- not everyone can stomach the height of fine dining at the top of some of the city's skyscrapers, towering hundreds of metres in the air.
Newly minted in the square mile, the Walkie Talkie is host to two of the highest, but the capital's tallest building, the Shard, is home to the majority.
It may be shorter, but it's the Heron Tower which houses London's highest restaurant, an accolade that goes to Duck & Waffle.
Sadly there's one London restaurant and building which lost its claim as, and host to, one of the highest restaurants, as Paramount at Centre Point closed its doors at the start of the year.
London’s Highest restaurants

In any normal restaurant window tables are the quiet ones. At Duck & Waffle that window is a sheer drop of almost 200 metres, which is both spectacular and slightly terrifying.duckandwaffle.com
