New to the photography scene I am a very naive amateur and welcomed the hints & tips that were given from photographers around me.
This was my first visit to the Shard and would completely liken it to the "Top of the Rock" experience in New York. Viewing platforms are sited 800ft above the streets of London with 360' views across the city and beyond. The platforms are accessed via 2 super sonic high speed kaleidoscope lifts. Lift 1 takes you from pavement to level 33 in 25 seconds, Lift 2 to floor 68 in similar speeds!....
Across the river North of London, you could make the arch of Wembley stadium, BT tower, Monument and nestling amongst the skysrapers of London the Tower of London.
Afternoon Tea and a stay at the new hotel are on my wish list!.
