    Shell Centre, in London, United Kingdom is one of the two "central offices" of oil major Shell (the other is in The Hague). It comprises a skyscraper tower and three nine-storey wings (formerly the "Upstream Building"). It also once included a separate building known as the "Downstream Building" but that building was disposed of by Shell in the 1990s and is now a block of residential apartments known as the White House. Shell Centre is a prominent feature on the South Bank of the River Thames near County Hall, and now forms the backdrop to the London Eye. Shell Centre was constructed in 1961, to a design by Sir Howard Robertson, and the tower stands at 107 metres with 27 storeys and extends three storeys below ground. The tower was the first London skyscraper to exceed the height of the Victoria Tower of the Palace of Westminster.

    I've been here on business and after negotiating Waterloo Station, getting here is half the fun. I also like the Central location to the Thames and other parts of London.
