The Shard of Glass, panoramic view over London #shardview

Panoramic view of the Tower Bridge in London from the Shard building

As a BIG fan of skyscrapers with 360° observation decks, I couldn’t miss on the opportunity of a visit up the Shard of Glass  in London :) The view over the entire city and all of its endless landmarks is impressive and I highly recommend the experience to anybody visiting London. You can book online your Shard Viewing Gallery ticket in advance so that it will be a bit cheaper than at the counter on the day but, as it is ideal to visit it on a sunny day, I would suggest you could simply go there as soon as the sky looks good enough during your trip… I did my best to find the proper time to visit it and scheduled it on a nice blue skied day but by the time I reached the place a storm was already approaching :P Changeable weather! So here are the pictures of the #shardview :) Enjoy xxx
