I pulled out another Belgian choc from the "weather chocolate box" filled with a windy flavor but the place I chose was worth all that fighting with the wind since the Shard is the right place to be no matter what the weather looks like and whether you want to enjoy a hot beverage or palatable course.
I I went there to treat myself to a cup of tea (love drinking tea!), an alternative cold cup of tea though filled with alcohol and herbs..
I took the lift that goes automatically to 32nd floor in about 6 sec! The view from the Shard is breathtaking and picked a table next to the window so as to have a wonderful view over London. I spotted London Tower and many other buildings that all seemed like ants...!
A little bit more about the Shard.
The Shard, also referred as the Shard of glass or Shard London Bridge is an 87-storey skyscraper in London that forms part of the London Bridge Quarter development. The Shard's construction began in March 2009; it was topped out on 30 March 2012 and inaugurated on 5 July 2012.Practical completion was achieved in November 2012 but its privately operated observation deck, the View from the Shard, opened to the public on 1 February 2013. Standing approximately 306 meters high, the Shard is currently the tallest building in the European Union. It is the second-tallest free-standing structure in the United Kingdom, after the concrete tower at the Emley Moor transmitting station. It was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano, and replaced Southwark Towers, a 24-storey office block built on the site in Southwark in 1975.
