The Shard – Already an Iconic London Landmark:
I make no excuse for loving London. Our city is vibrant, eclectic, packed with heritage sights and alive with both residents and tourists. I was lucky enough to visit The Shard just before it was opened to the public and to get a preview of The View.
Those who were there spent hours gazing out through the intelliscopes (special telescopes that allow you to read more about whatever landmark you’ve zoomed in on). We took photographs of the amazing view. We walked round the 360 degree platform, trying to spot where we lived, where we worked or even where we’d just been that day.
Now the Shard is home to offices, restaurants and hotel rooms. But, it’s enough for me just to take the lift to the highest viewing platform and look out over London.
Thanks to Morgan Pryce I’ve been offered two tickets to The View and a glass of champagne for the winner to celebrate with. If you’ve been yearning to take a look yourself, why not enter the giveaway now. It’s the perfect way to see London.
