- Guy's Hospital is the tallest in the world despite being almost 40 years old. It consists of two towers that are interlinked together - the User Tower that hosts the hospital accommodation which rises to 122 metres, and the Communications Tower, a 138 metre tall service section that's boosted to 142.6 metres by the boiler flues.
- The building is built on a 3.05 metre thick raft that allows it to "float" above the soft London clay in a more efficient manner than traditional foundation piles.
- The "head" of Guy's Hospital contains a 150 capacity lecture hall with overhanging balcony that has a sheer 120 metre drop to the street below.
- The Eighties saw plans for neon lights to be fitted to the distinctive if brutal tower shape to highlight it at night but these were refused by Southwark Council.
