Hi Guys! Today my family and I visited the Shard in London. My Grandparents bought us tickets as a christmas present last year so we decided to go today. We hopped on the train and headed into London.
We arrived at the London Bridge station and the Shard was right outside and you definately could not miss it.
We went inside and looked around the gift shop because you can never go somewhere without looking in the gift shop; I bought a bag because a girl can never have too many bags. After tht we began the tour of the Shard. We took the lift to the 69th floor where the viewing gallery was and you go about 6 metres in 1 second which feels slightly strange but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
I definately did not expect it to be that cool, you could literally see the whole of London out of a window and everything down below looked so tiny, like a little model city.
We walked up the stairs to the 72nd floor where the Shard is open and there is a little garden. We had a drink and relaxed there for a bit as it was really sunny and we got a great view. Apparently there is floor where there is a ‘loo with a view’ but I wasn’t too keen on that idea so we decided that we had seen everything we wanted to and left. All in all it was amazing and we all enjoyed it very much and I would recommend ‘The View From The Shard’ to anyone.
As we were close by, we headed to Borough Market to see if we could pick up some lunch. I decided to have a burger and luckily they had a vegan burger stall there and it was delicious. We then went to the German Deli and picked up some giant pretzels which were also delicious. There were sooo many other stalls around but there was a point when we had to leave, so we headed home after an extremely exciting and fun day.
Luckily when we got back it was still really hot so my brother and I jumped into the paddling pool to cool off and had loads of fun. Anyway, I hope you all had a great day too!
