General info: 

The Vista at the Trafalgar is perched on the top of the Trafalgar Hotel in Trafalgar Square. From the terrace at Vista you can see Nelson's Column as it spears the skyline. Plus there's the London Eye and Big Ben. Those who don't suffer from vertigo can also look down onto buzzing Trafalgar Square.

To escape the hustle and bustle of the West End, go in the daytime, to see the city lights, go in the nighttime.

The Signature cocktail is Midnight at Vista. Perfect for long summer nights, this drink has Grey Goose vodka and Grand Marnier muddled with blackberry, a drop of honey and a dash of lime.
