Personally I like GMT because the Greenwich Observatory from which it gets
its name is very pretty; there's lots of grass, and even an old sailing ship
moored nearby.  Also there's a "GMT clock" with which you can have your
picture taken.

For tracking satellites maybe you need to be careful, but for arch, why not
go for the scenic option?
