You can now gain access to the viewpoint of the second-tallest skyscraper in Europe. You will be instantly AMAZED.
Views from a height.
The second-tallest skyscraper in Europe stands in Southwark. This young building named Shard, was completed in 2012 and still hasn't been occupied by the offices, restaurants or the luxurious hotel which it is preparing to host, but since a short while ago, it's now possible to gain access to the viewpoint that crowns the building at 300 metres from the city's ground. Although, it's best to get the tickets in advance, due to its recent opening. The view that you get from going up the 72 floors of its structure, from an exterior terrace and, if you can, at dusk, is the most impressive compared to any other building in this city. A photograph that you'll love to keep as a memory, without a doubt and which will soon be one of the most typical of London. When you come down, you might still feel like watching the city from a height. If this is the case, and it's almost time for dinner, an ideal option that's in the same area, is to go to the OXO Tower and have dinner in its restaurant on the eighth floor. You can dine there with some excellent views, even if it's not as high up as the Shard. End the day by gazing at how the sun sets over the City of London and the River Thames, as it'll be an unforgettable experience during your visit to London.
