In this book, an intrepid crew of urban explorers shares dizzying photos and stories collected while journeying up, over and into the London skyline. Over the course of seven years, a well-respected team of adventurers has embarked on scores of not-quite-legal investigations inside, below, and above the city s hidden infrastructures. Now they reveal the results of their expeditions scaling the city's heights. Jaw-dropping photographs offer extraordinary views from vantage points that most of us will never reach. Divided into thematic chapters, the book offers personal accounts of various excursions, including travels up freestanding masts, pylons, and chimneys; the tops of public spaces such as the Barbican Centre and the British Museum; voyeuristic glimpses over the rooftop gardens of the rich and famous; and the heights of London starchitecture : the Gherkin, the Shard, and the Walkie-Talkie.
