    A fancy office building residing near City of London school and St Paul's Cathedral.

    Can't find much regarding it's history, other than the fact it coincides with the movie with the same name. It's name follows the street it is found on, ''Knightrider street'', where in medieval times became ''the route taken by knights on their journey from the Tower of London to Smithfield, to take part in tournaments''. (1)

    However, the neighboring pub, Centre page pub, is rumored to be where Guy Fawkes held meetings for his gunpowder plot. (2)

    Trying to enter the building's locked off walkway was physically challenging, and considering the fact there was 2 other guys who did the climb with me.
    However everything became really easy after the initial scrambling:

    For the time being, had to use walls to steady the camera or take maximum ISO shots...
