Things to do in London: Check out the capital's new tallest building at London Bridge
Published: Tuesday 23rd of February 2010
Still under construction, Heron Tower near London Bridge already stands head and shoulders above Tower 42 in the City.
Although not one of the most obvious places to visit as a London attraction, the construction site is certainly among the things to see in London whether tourists like it or not.
The glass structure will stand at an impressive 246 metres when it is finished, and will be the tallest building in the UK, taking over the mantle from Canada Square's Canary Wharf.
St Paul's Cathedral, the Gherkin tower, Tower Bridge and the London Eye are among the London attractions that already dominate the capital's skyline.
However, Heron Tower is among a number of skyscraper projects planned for the capital that will alter the appearance of the London skyline for some years to come.
