The impressive lifts whilst ascending use video screens and mirrors to create the effect of rising through iconic ceilings of London, including the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, the spiral staircase at Monument etc. and during descending feature similar effects using multimedia to create the effect of the sky receding, the seasons changing, and the streets of London coming into focus. On the 68th floor, the visitors are treated to the brilliant views of the city with mesmerising cloudscapes i.e. cloud formations that visitors will encounter from the viewing decks.
