The Shard

Standard

I had the opportunity to go to the Shard, the highest viewing platform at the top of Western Europe’s tallest building.

We went up with a speedy elevator to level 33 , changed elevators to level 69.

There is the first viewing platform.  Then you can go 3 flights up to level 72 which is the highest level for visitors.

The sight is breathtaking and you see all London Landmarks and more.

Definitely not for people who don’t like heights.

 

 

Well worth a visit if you are in London.

It was not sunny but we still could see enough.

 As Groucho Marx says:

This is the Olympic Aquatic Centre which has a funny shape. My mum and her sister went swimming in there too and they loved it. Mum wants to go again soon, she so loved the long 50 m lanes…. and the hairdryers… apparently. 🙂

Then we went with the cable car over the Thames, I loved the view, I could almost see my house from there!

You can see the famous Dome behind me where they filmed a scene of a James Bond Film once.

All ended with a wonderful glass of Champagne with High Tea and the best view from the 42nd floor of a building in the middle of London!
