The roof garden offers 360 degree views and this suspended pocket park lives 15 floors high, atop One Fen Court.As of 15 February it’s open to the public. And the best bit? It’s completely free. No pre-booking necessary, just turn up and ride the lift up.

Designed by Eric Parry Architects, One Fen Court is a noteworthy building even if you ignore the roof garden. That’s largely thanks to its unusual design. The higher level is covered in iridescent strips, producing a vivid colourful effect both inside and outside.

On weekdays the garden is open from 10am-6.30pm, until summer hours kick in on 1 April, at which point it’s open till 9pm. Excitingly, it’s trialling opening hours on the weekend too, trying to counter the presumed-scarcity of things to do in the City on non-working days.

The final thing worth looking out for is down at ground level. The building has a spacious through-passageway to retain a historic link between Fenchurch Street and Fenchurch Avenue. It’s from here that you catch a lift to the roof. But before you do, look up. There’s a digital art installation by Vong Phaophanit and Claire Oboussier on the ceiling.

It aims to act as a camera obscura bringing imagery from the garden down to the street. The best moment comes when the image flickers onto the roof’s live-stream, trained on Tower Bridge. People walk underneath barely noticing, but stop and stare when it grabs their attention.
