London's Newest Attraction: The View from The Shard

Cited to be the most 'eagerly awaited' sightseeing tourist attraction in all of London, The View from The Shard opens to the public this weekend on February 1, 2013.  

Offering stunning 360° views of the city for the first time in history, London's The View from The Shard was designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano.  As the equivalent of Paris's Eiffel Tower, the Shard stands almost as tall at 1,016 feet (310 metres) as compared to 1,050 feet (320 metres) for the Grande Dame, making The Shard is the 2nd tallest building in Europe!

With room to accommodate 400 people throughout the viewing platforms, visitors to The View from The Shard will first take an elevator to the 33rd floor followed by a second elevator up to the 68th floor triple-level main viewing platform.
