    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!

    Don't bother with the pricey viewing platform, save that money and head to one of the bars for a cocktail with a view!

    If you could, stay at Shangri-La at The Shard for even a night. It's worth every pound spent.

    You can pay the full price on the ground floor, or ask to go up for the cocktail bar and buy a drink there to enjoy the wonderful and breathtaking view of the city! Def. worth paying the price!

    Pay to see The View from the Shard. It's worth it, especially on a lovely day.

    The architecture and views are phenomenal. The toilets are simply awesome, if somewhat lacking in privacy! Whilst an awesome building and experience, the price is extortionate.
