I'd just be worried that I would find it too high to look down as I'm not good with heights...
I have a similar kind of fear, it's not a fear of heights though, it's a fear of falling. I can quite happily walk across a glass floor, Go Ape (once I'm satisfied that I actually am attached), or look down the centre of a twelve story stairwell. However if there is a real possibility of falling any more than 20' (such as the edge of a quay, even with water below) then there's no way you'll find me near the edge. Unlike most 'fears' this isn't a 'phobia'. A 'phobia' is an irrational fear or something and my fear is the very rational fear of plummeting to my certain doom!
Ahem, I drift from the topic.
That's what I worry about too. I don't think I could walk across a glass floor if it was very high up. Falling from a great height is never a good thing norbitonflyer: One of my lecturers went to New College in Oxford in the 90s. I don't know if she liked it though.

Most of it i believe, according to the guides any moves to sell the building have been abandoned.
Well the freehold isn't being sold but the building is going to be subject to a "sale and lease back" arrangement which will drop a large sum in TfL's coffers in the short term but effectively TfL then have to lease the building back. That's illustrative of the mess that TfL's finances are in. Months of work have been going on to survey the building and ensure the bits used to run the railway underneath are physically separated off from the main building complex and not covered by the lease back. There was a TfL Board Paper about this a few months back - that's where I heard about all this.
Before I left LU I arranged a Saturday visit to photograph inside 55 Broadway plus some rooftop shots. I may have shared the photos before but here's a link for those who haven't seen them before.
Even still it is a bit odd having such a change to the view. Never mind; it is soon to be filled with some towers of flats.
They’re very average flats too though probably better than what it replaces. There was a lot of local opposition, myself included, at plans to make some of them twenty storeys high which is just ridiculous. The idea of making it one of London’s most expensive flats makes me laugh too - Victoria has and continues to improve though it’s been like living on a building site for the past seven years. However, if I had that kind of money to burn, I wouldn’t be living there.
Any forum members here with a spare £20 million might get a great view of the upgraded station though a bit of a migrane-inducing bathroom.
