The Shard London is one of the most beautiful tower that is located in London. This tower is also known as Shard of glass and Shard London bridge. Most of the people know it by the name London Bridge Tower. This tower has an 87 storey skyscraper in London that forms some part of the London Bridge Quarter Development. The construction of this tower started in march 2009 and it was completed by 30th of march, 2012 and it was inaugurated on 5th of July of the same year. This tower is approximately 1004 feet (306 metres) high and currently it is also considered as the tallest building in the European union. It is also the second largest free standing structure in the UK. This very beautiful glass tower has round about 72 habitable floors, a viewing gallery and also an open air reservation desk.
The Shard London was basically designed by an Italian architect named Renzo Piano. The arrival of this tower has actually changed the skyline of London. Most of the people like to visit London just to see this glass tower as it is the highest and the tallest tower of London. This beautiful tower actually makes London one of the most beautiful state of the united kingdoms. The design of this building is just awesome. It is made like a pyramid whose sides do not meet up at the top and this shape of the tower has inspired a lot of church spires of London. In the winters, when the fog descends, the Shard tower looks like a beautiful modern beanstalk that juts up from the river back on its way to the mysterious land.
The area all around “The Shard London” has actually been benefited from more than thousand of pounds in the investment in many recent years. The sidewalks are way too nicer, but apart from the lively Borough market and the museum of Clink prison, the basic purpose why people visit the glass tower is to change their trains. It is also seen that the big buildings require a lot of cash these days, especially in the Middle East. A person who was involved in the construction of the project of this great Shard tower told the Financial times, “It is all about owning a chunky trophy asset in one of the world’s big global cities and London is seen as the safest place to put large amounts of cash – it is very stable politically.”
The view from The Shard London is almost twice as high as compared to any other viewing point that is available in London and the developers of this tower believe that this tower has become one major attraction of London for the tourists and the visitors. For the purpose of mitigating the crowd, the visitors are supposed to pre book the defined time for their arrival and the date as well, so that they can get an easy access to the viewing point. This booking procedure was started for avoiding over the crowd on the tower.
