First let me say that I love attractions like this and visit them whenever they exist. This experience was on par with similar attractions. It provided a great view of London's best assets - a better view than the London Eye. I booked a ticket for 1000 on a Saturday.

Being the tallest building in London, you can see The Shard from almost anywhere. Some people like it, some not so much. But no matter if you are a fan of modern glass structures or not, The Shard changes the London skyline.

Now, looking at a skyscraper from far away is one thing, looking down from a skyscraper something completely different. After The Shard is one of the latest attractions...more
