The Shard is a 95-storey skyscraper located in Southwark, London. However, do not brush it off as any other tall building in the cityscape. To begin with, it is the tallest structure anywhere in Western Europe. It features 72 inhabitable floors.
One of its biggest attractions is its viewing gallery and an open-air observation deck situated high above at 800 feet. Bear in mind, it is twice the height of any other viewpoint in the city. So, imagine seeing as far as 40 miles on a clear day. Fix your eyes at some of the city’s best attractions like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and even Windsor Castle. In addition to the panoramic view, you will also learn fascinating facts about the landmarks you see care of the audio guides provided to visitors.
The facade of The Shard is another reason to add it to your itinerary. Why? Well, because it shimmers. Indeed, its sparkle feels like an invitation to visit the pyramidal tower made with around 11,000 panes of glass. Its distinct design earned it first place honors at the Emporis Skyscraper Awards in 2013. The remarkable execution of the skyscraper’s innovative plan impressed the expert jury who hailed the structure as the new emblem of London.
