The Gherkin and Lloyds Building, London (@ Ashley Cooper/Corbis)
- This giant 180m skyscraper is officially called 30 St Mary Axe.""Shall we try and get on top of it?
- The European Union\s 30th tallest building was opened in 2003.""It can be seen from the M11 motorway, some 32km away
- A bar at the summit offers panoramic views of London.""Just don\t take a wrong turn on the way home
- With a host of architecture awards and accolades, this place has really made a name for itself.""So how come it\s got such a daft name?
