Many of London's skyscrapers have nicknames. The one at 20 Fenchurch Street is called the "Walkie Talkie", due to its walkie-talkie-like shape.

The Walkie Talkie is located in London City, about 10 minutes walking distance away from St. Paul’s Cathedral. The building was in the news some years because the light reflecting from it melted parts of cars parked below. At the top of the building, you will find a three-storey public garden, called the Sky Garden, which give a brilliant view of central London. At the top are also two restaurants and a bar, if you want to spend more time at the top.
