Heights Above London

I am not a great fan of heights but I thoroughly enjoyed the view from the bar on the top 32nd floor of the Centrepoint Building in London during my recent tour of England. From high above the Tottenham Court Rd tube station this view is looking east along New Oxford St towards Bloomsbury. It was great fun looking down on the double decker buses zooming about and the pedestrians speeding along the sidewalks. 
The November theme for the City Daily Photo blogs is 'heights'. Click here to see more examples from around the world.

Great fun! I wish we'd known about that bar when we were there. I loved riding in the double-decker buses.. fun to get this birds-eye view!

I thought for sure this would be from the top of the CN Tower. No red double-deckers in Toronto I assume.

What a great view. I would love to visit one day.

Wow, that height must be really high to make the red buses so small.

So much to see in London - we were far too busy to rise to a high point:) Great pic!

Great idea for a blog theme. You've got me thinking about some high points from my travels! :-)Such an unusual cityscape that you've captured here.

Ah, Centre Point - I actually walked past it this last weekend on my way to China Town for a Dim Sum, whilst visiting friends. During my years living in London I had never seen it occupied, it was always an empty building, I asked whether it was used now but they didn't know. Now I know I can visit a bar there and see London from a different perspective!
