The above is the view, due west, from the end of our greenhouses (roof of G.E. Fogg building): photographed by Jon, 19th April 2012 at 16:42.
The tall buildings, roughly 2000 metres distant, from left to right, are:
The Shard (above London Bridge station).
The Royal London Hospital, in blue, with helipad (closer at 800 m).
30, St Mary Axe (commonly called 'The Gherkin').
Tower 42, right next door to the newer Heron Tower.
The flowers (
Nicotiana tabacum, grown by Anna Yeates), inside the greenhouse, are just obscuring the apartment block of Withy House on Globe Road.

The labs, computing and culturing equipment are based in the Joseph Priestley building. The microscopy instrumentation is housed within
The NanoVision Centre (ground floor of the Francis Bancroft building (see below maps)). We maintain a full suite of wet lab equipment for our own use (SDS-PAGE, Western blotting, FPLC, bench top centrifuge, pH meters, autoclave, light microscope, readily shared with permission (contact me)). Within the Department, there are ultracentrifuges and a wide range of spectroscopy equipment. Shared use of a dark laboratory with incubators and growth cabinet is ℅ Dr Norbert Krauss. We have space in a secure air-conditioned room consisting of an off-line Linux cluster (administered locally and upgraded annually, with temperature-monitored shutdown), running our own personalised coding and scripts. In addition we occasionally use an 8m2 greenhouse on the roof of the Fogg building (see above image).

Here is the view in Google Earth, looking roughly from west to east, at a height of 1.44 km. The 2012
Olympic park is a few kilometres behind us.
