“The View from the Shard,” housed on the 68th and 72nd floors is one of the most popular landmarks in the city of London. It towers the London skyline at 1,016 ft. making it the tallest skyscraper today (59th in the world).
(TRAVPR.COM) LONDON,UK - October 6th, 2012 - Anyone who fancies experiencing a more challenging and breath taking sightseeing tour will surely enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of the English capital. Imagine being able to see up to 40 miles worth of scenery! Many even claimed that you can catch a glimpse of France from the viewing deck.
The platform will be accessible through high-speed kaleidoscopic lifts that will bring tourists to the 68th floor in less than a minute. From then on, they’ll be invited to have a short walk to be able top to see the triple-height, glass-fronted 69th floor where they could get to appreciate the view of the surrounding cityscape better. Visitors who are not afraid of heights can go up until the 72nd floor where they can look up and see the remaining floors taper. It’s literally like kissing the clouds and feeling mighty from above.
However, we’re certainly doubtful about the crowd and how long the queuing would take when “The View from the Shard” opens to public, but the organizers of the observation deck have reported that they’ll ensure good traffic so that each visitor will have more room and more fun while they marvel at the beautiful sight before them.
Previously known as the “Shard London Bridge” and “London Bridge Tower,” the Shard opened to the public last July 5 with a stupendous laser light show. For the viewing platform’s official opening, the Shard opening tickets will only be £25 for adults and £18 for children, and you can get an early reservation so that you’ll be one of the 17,500 people who are currently booked to enter the iconic landmark when the Shard will be ready for public viewing on February 2013.
Any tourist or visitor should definitely visit the Shard London. It’s simply an essential part of your tour; it’s like you’re seeing the Empire State building in New York – a powerful, symbolic, and outstanding edifice that represents the stability and control of the English capital.
