I’ve visited View from the Shard at London Bridge several times – it gives an incredible bird’s-eye view of the city. My top tip for visiting is to go up about 30 minutes before sunset – that gives you a chance to see the city in daylight, watch the sun set behind the London Eye, admire the twinkling lights as night falls and look out for the moon. You get amazing sweeping views and can see lots of landmark buildings including Big Ben, the BT Tower and Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Gherkin and the ‘Walkie-talkie’ building, the Canary Wharf skyscrapers and Tower Bridge. However, don’t forget to look out for the Shard’s shadow, the cool patterns of train tracks directly below you, reflections and the structures of the building itself.
