The Shard, a 310-meter tall skyscraper
If you wish to soar over London without leaving the ground, now is your chance. With its 95 floors, The Shard can boast of being the tallest building in Western Europe. The view from the top of this magnificent glass tower is absolutely breathtaking. Down below, the Tower of London looks like a tiny insignificant dot. Even the tall buildings of The City, the financial center of the British capital, seem unable to compete with The Shard.
If you book your tickets in advance, you can take an elevator that will whisk you up to The View From The Shard, a set of observation spaces located on the 68th, 69th, and 72nd floors. You can then take the time to admire the city and immortalize this unique experience.
Behind this titanic tower lies a renowned architect: Renzo Piano, who has designed other great monuments such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Allowing visitors to understand his work from the inside while enjoying the exterior views was one of the great concerns of the Italian genius.
