Officially it is called “30 St Mary Axe”, but nobody uses that name.

The Gherkin is located between Liverpool Street and Bank tube stations, hence right in the middle of “The City”, the old financial district of London. All around this part of town one can see how really modern glass and steel skyscrapers are mixed with old buildings and churches. In certain locations, such a mix can even be observed from the river shore, which is something that would be unthinkable in other cities such as Paris.
