Heron TowerWhen it was completed in March 2011 Heron Tower was the tallest building in the City of London, a title soon snatched from it by the ludicrously lofty Shard - which trumps the building at 110 Bishopsgate standing at 309.7 metres to Heron Tower's mere 230 metre height. Most striking from street level is the triple height fish tank - the largest privately owned aquarium in Europe - which includes live sharks among the 67 different species swimming about. The tank is cared for by two full-time attendants and they employ divers to clean the rocks and windows twice a week. As well as offices - most of which are split into three storey 'villages' - there are three cafes and restaurants in the building: The Drift on the ground floor; SushiSamba up on the 38th and 39th floors; and Duck & Waffle above that right at the top of the building, both of which opened in the summer of 2012.
