Would you like to work, live or play in one of London’s tallest buildings?

Think of the views?  Far from the maddening crowd!  Away from the busy traffic.  Peace and quiet in the sky.  An oasis of calm.

It’s amazing to think the oldest tallest structure still in the top 50 was built in 1950 – The Crystal Palace transmitter.  The oldest top 50 office building was built in 1963 – The Millbank Tower.  The Shard still remains as the tallest building in London with a wide variety of uses.

Working Space London offers space in a number of these buildings, some at very affordable rates and other at the top end.  Let us help to give your business the best working space and environment for you and your staff at prices you can afford.

This list ranks externally complete London skyscrapers and free-standing towers that stand at least 400 feet (122 m) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. An equals sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The “Year” column indicates the year in which a building was completed.

List below compiles the top 26 of the 50!
