365 Day 55 - The Shard

10 Jul 2012 8:41PM   Views : 289 Unique : 220

I'm not a big fan of The Shard, I think it must have looked better on paper than it does in actuality. Usually it just looks unfinished, though maybe when we can get close to it there may be some more interesting views available.

Though today there was a really good brooding sky behind it and suddenly it actually looked impressive.

Well, is London Bridge Station close enough Wink

Just a thought.... would the views from the top of The Monument or the walkway over Tower Bridge be good ones ?
Presumably these are still open to the public ?

Well it would be, but you can't get to the area round the bottom at the moment as they are still building the rest of the site.

The monument is pretty much the view view from my office - tower bridge is not a bad idea, though 8 a ticket and full of tourists, so I might try it after the jubilympics.
I just think they used the wrong glass in the shard - it dosnt reflect enough so you tend to see through and looks quite messy!
