A delightful combination of the old and new in London that almost looks like a montage but these two very different buildings lie within a couple of hundred yards of each other in the heart of London – you just need to work out the viewpoint!

St, Andrew Undershaft was built in 1532 and is one of the rare churches to have survived unscathed through both the Great Fire of London in 1666 and the Second World War. The Gherkin in the background, more properly known as the Swiss Re building or 30 St. Mary Axe, was built 471 years later in 2003 and is known worldwide whilst the church is known only to a few. An amazing juxtaposition of the old and new that is most probably unique to London.
