Seaside in the Sky
Thursday 9 March 2017
This summer you can take a trip to the seaside whilst high in the sky in one of our wonderful city's most famous skyscrapers. From beach bars to deck chairs, this August guests can discover a new way to experience the traditional Great British seaside in London.
Every summer, The Gherkin's event space at the top of the building is transformed, and this year guests will be transported to the Great British seaside.
The pop-up will be in place during August and the beautiful glass dome on the 38th and 39th floors will offer guests a seaside experience with a difference. The space which can be hired for up to 240 guests for a standing reception will be filled with deck chairs, beach huts, boats and a lovely beach bar which will give guests a chance to enjoy and reminisce of fun times by the sea with London's skyline providing the perfect backdrop.
Event menus created by Head Chef Barry Tonks will showcase seaside classics such as fish and chips, candy floss and mini doughnuts alongside a sparkling wine menu from Nyetimber and delicious gin cocktails.
