As the half term hurtles towards us, we suddenly found ourselves with slightly less plans than usual, but as we live close to London, we know there is always something for us to see and do in London. One place we hadn’t visited before is THE SHARD! The Girl has been “learning all about London” at school and we thought it would be a great opportunity to visit London’s literally biggest (or certainly tallest) attraction.
And this is how our trip went…
We probably had a total of an hour at The Shard – including waiting to collect our tickets and travelling rapidly up the lifts. We were lucky with the weather and had brilliant views of the whole of London – seeing for miles into every direction. It was thrilling to be at the same height as helicopters circling London!
After The Shard, we headed to Borough Market for some yummy food and treats. Lucky for us it was “Apple Day” at Borough Market with lots going on – including shows and Morris Dancers. A great day out indeed.
