About The Shard

The Shard opened in March 2012 at an estimated cost of £435 million. With a Neo-futurist architectural style, it was designed by Renzo Piano and is the tallest building in the United Kingdom. 95 per cent of its construction materials are recycled and it features 44 lifts that travel at speeds of up to 6 meters a second. The building uses 11,000 glass panels, which is enough to cover 8 football pitches. Six abseiling window-cleaners keep The Shard London shiny and clean. They begin with one side each week and after finishing the fourth side go back to the first again, so their work is never complete.

In addition to The Shard hotel, the building also features a swimming pool and ten luxury apartments. When you visit The Shard, you can also take yoga classes, guided tours, and even handle historical objects with the Museum of London’s monthly visits.

From The Shard viewing platform, located on the 68th-72nd floors, you can enjoy breath-taking views, 800ft above the capital. The view from the Shard takes in objects up to 40 miles away on a clear day, covering famous landmarks such as London’s Olympic stadium, Tower Bridge, the London Eye, and the BT Tower.

The Shard offers a taste of the high life with its selection of gourmet restaurants, situated over three floors of the building. Aqua on level 41 serves British cuisine against panoramic views of the city. Hutong, decorated with silk curtains and lanterns, specialises in the diverse cuisines of Northern China, while Oblix offers stylish urban dishes from seafood to some of the best steaks in London.
