360 degree view of London from the tallest building in western Europe.
The building is split into various sections including the Shangri-La Hotel, domestic dwellings, and office space.
I don’t really want to repeat all the building related facts because you can read all about these on the Shard website: http://www.the-shard.com
My visit was early in the afternoon, but I bet the sunsets look amazing, imagine a thunder storm while you’re up there, the lightning must look picture-book!!
I overheard one of the staff saying that you can actually feel the Shard shake when the wind is high.
I’m not sure if you see all of London, maybe many of the outer boroughs aren’t visible within the spectrum but you see a great span from here.
Remember, unlike most other London attractions, you can’t just turn up for this one – you must book tickets in advance.
….and you will feel a bit like you’re in an airport when you go though the security checks.
Whatever time of day you go – you will be given the chance to purchase photos of yourself/party against a range of backgrounds, including a night time Shard view – this was really impressive and great quality, but do take your own cameras – you can’t go up there and not have good old go at some Shard selfies.
