City of London Shopping
One New Change
One New Change is the largest & newest Shopping Centre in the City of London.
Because of it's controversial style it has been nicknamed 'The Stealth Building"
One of the good thing about it is its views from its roof terrace, and a visit there is absolutely free. On my visit a roof terrace cafe was been fitted out & should now be open.
A dramatic close view of next doors St Paul's Cathedral is available with the roof of the main part of the Cathedral just above eye level. Unfortunately a bit of bad designing prevents the view of the bottom portion of the Cathedral.
Spectacular unusual views of St Paul's Cathedral can be seen from the glass sided lift so have your camera or Video camera ready on your journey to the roof.
