Lovely, unusual structure. Takes a commanding presence in the London skyline. Blends in nicely with the historic icons.

You can see the City within minutes and enjoy a glass of champagne whilst you do so! Go on a sunny day to see the benefits as far as Epsom Down and Alexander Palace.

This was an overwhelming experience. Looking out of the glass from a 72 story building, is breath taking. At first I was afraid to look down, but after a few minutes, I made courage and looked. It was a real treat!!!

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

No, definitely not - they are completely separate. You have to pay for The View from The Shard, which operates in its own right, and it is entered by a different entrance in the building, with separate lifts, etc. I hope you... More
