Earlier this week, I went to London with my sister to see the view from The Shard. I'd been wanting to go for a while and so we finally booked a date to actually go. Luckily the rain had stopped by the time we went up and the view was pretty amazing - we could see much further than I had imagined! (apparently the view stretches to 40 miles on a clear day)
It felt particularly high after climbing the stairs to the open-air floor on level 72 - there is no glass in parts so you get a real sense of being open to the elements. I'd love to go back at night time or in the early evening, I'm sure the view must be beautiful all lit up!
