  3. Photographs reveal a very different London

    British Museum

    While you may think you many know many of London's iconic buildings well, Paul Campbell is offering a very different glimpse of them.

    The London-based photographer has spent the last five years going up in a helicopter to take pictures of the city from above.


    His works show Westfield with a snakeskin-like roof, while Cannon Street Station has a large garden above it.

    Campbell said: "For me, the greatest wonder of all is the unique beauty and design to be found on the rooftops of our architectural icons."


    He said his images were "very much an appreciation of the work of architects old and new to our great city," but added that it also "begs the question that perhaps architects design for the birds in the sky?".

    The photographs feature in his new book, Bird's Eye London.
