The View From the Shard
Are you scared or unfazed by heights? The Shard, a daunting 1,016 feet / 310 metres high, is now London and Western Europe's tallest building. Did you know you can book tickets to see The View from the Shard?
In just one minute, the elevators whisk you up to the viewing platform, which is twice the height of any other London skyline view. On a clear day you can see as far as 40 miles!
I'm pretty freaked out about heights (the Eiffel Tower makes me feel all queasy), but I might buck up and book us tickets for my husband's birthday. I think he would love it. Will you visit The View from the Shard?
Stunning photos (including the top image) of the view via The Telegraph (including one of the window cleaners... yikes!).
