From Wikipedia:
St. Paul's Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral on Ludgate Hill, in the City of London and the seat of the Bishop of London. St. Paul`s distinctive dome was designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1710 after the great fire of 1666 destroyed the original church.
Canary Wharf Tower is a large business development in London, located on the Isle of Dogs in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
The Gherkin (Swiss Re Building) was designed by architects Sir Norman Foster & Partners. The Gherkin is a 40-storey, diagonal steel structure (a 'diagrid') standing 180 metres high (three times the height of Niagara Falls). It has a circular floor plan which widens as it rises from the ground and tapers towards its apex. Its external glass covers 24,000 square metres - about the size of five football pitches - and, despite its shape, has only one piece of curved glass: the 2.4m diameter lens on top.
The OXO Tower is a building with a prominent tower on the south bank of the River Thames. The building currently has a set of bijou arts and crafts shops on the ground and first floors, and a well-known restaurant on the 8th (at the top of the tower).
