    That does look fantastic :cool: I really like the pic of the BT Tower with the Wembley arch in the distance :)

    £25.00 each though...I'm still baulking at that, might have to save my pennies up!

    Yeah - and this (cheaper! price) is with the advanced booking - I'd only want to go up if sunny - supposing you booked in advance and it was just cloudy?!! Waste of a trip.

    No, 40,000ft of there abouts. Used to be 65,000 until Concorde retired.

    I don't think Concorde ever got to 65,000' over the UK on a public flight.

    :confused: Not sure what you mean. Visitors to my luxury riverside apartment often comment that the view is very similar to that from the outside bit at the back of the Tate members' bar though, if that helps you place it.

    I've never tried; they are entranced by my immense charm and good looks before I have even mentioned my luxury riverside penthouse apartment.
