London's Vantage Points - Beckton Alps
Beckton was pretty much just the gasworks for a long while, now just the vestige of one of the spoil heaps remains.
For a while it was a dry ski slope, now it has been left to nature. Clamber up the hill and you will be presented with probably the most extensive 360 degree view in London. Given where it is, I'd hesitate before saying it was the best view. Looking around the Internet, this rather infrequently-updated site caught my fancy, and you can read the Diamond Geezer's Beckton visit here.
