You can find many places with good view in London, that are available for a free of charge. They are situated on the rooftop of the buildings, but as well outside on the hills. Some skyscraper rooftops are available for free, but you need to book your visit, because the spaces are limited.

To get the best views, you have to focus on the locations in inner London:

Sky Garden in Fenchurch skyscraper (The Walkie-Talkie) - is claimed as London's highest public garden. It is located in City of London. You have to check skygarden.london to get a free ticket or book a table in restaurant.

Fen Court rooftop (120 Fenchurch street) - located in City of London. The garden offers 360-degree views and is free for members of the public to visit, with no booking required.

Greenwich Observatory - is located in Greenwich park in Greenwich.

Primrose Hill - is located in Camden.

Parliament Hill - is located in Hampstead Heath. It is a bit far from the centre, but it is still a good viewpoint.

In my opinion, the best free views in London are from:

Sky Garden - 20 Fenchurch street skyscraper

Greenwich Observatory - you can see the Shard, City of London skyscrapers, Cannary Wharf skyscrapers and East London.

Sky Garden requires a booking. But sometimes you have to book your visit 2-3 weeks in advance. If there are no free tickets available, you can book a visit to Sky Garden's bars or restaurants.

If you can't book a visit to Sky Garden, then I recommend to visit Fen Court rooftop - 120 Fenchurch street. It is located not far from the Sky Garden and the view is quite good.
