    Come up for the absolute best views of London. You really can see everything! There are snacks and champagne available to buy at the top as well. It's a lovely experience.

    The architecture is WOW. But honestly the afternoon was not only over priced but average. You must not wear sport, trainers etc or you will not be allowed to go in.

    Renzo Piano beautified London's skyline. The view from the 32nd floor bar is magnificent. (The cocktails too)

    Go for the Gong-bar on the 52nd floor. Great drinks with an astonishing view of London. Skip Tink restaurant on the 35th floor. Service is slow and the food boring.

    Yes, it does look like a long shard of glass in person, which is what it pretty much looks like in photos. Definitely a one of its kind structure and worthy of your photo-taking time!

    If you feel the 25 pounds for the view are a bit much, go to the bar "Oblix" on 32 floor and say at the entrance that you're only there for drinks/coffee. It's on 32nd floor!!
