The Shard - tallest building in Europe

The Shard is an iconic Landmark of the london skyline. It is the tallest building in the western Europe. The Shard is London's highest best view. It is London's most eagerly awaited attraction. 

We can have a 360 degree views for up to 40 miles.  

A couple of months back me and husband just happened to be near this building and we decided to check it out...


Looking up you will see the shards of glass that form the top of the skyscraper.


 This is entirely a glass building. The Shard includes Offices, restaurants, Hotels and also Residences.




For people who want to take a look at the view from the top floor there is a separate entry and separate elevator lift which takes you to the highest floors i.e floor 68-72. This might cost you about 32£ per person

But we decided that we can easily go to a restaurant up there and spend the same money or even less on a meal and still get to see the view of London. How cool are we hun??
So we went to a restaurant out there which was on the floor 32. And OMG the lift on the shard was super amazingly fast like a jet. In just a matter of 3 seconds we were already there, it was like magic.. Haha! 

Here you can see the astonishing view from the restaurant we went to which was on the floor 32. Posting pics just for you!!!







Very beautiful view of tower bridge




In the restaurant ..

Next time we are planning on going to this place on an evening out because obviously the view looks entirely different in the night when the whole city lights are on.  
The entire experience was lovely and joyful.  

This is without a doubt the best view in town.
