You might want to grab a cuppa and even a cheeky biscuit as quite a lot of photos will follow....
Anyways, back to London! Back in January I booked tickets for us to visit The View from the Shard as part of our Silver Wedding Anniversary celebrations. I thought "if the Queen can have a year of celebrations so can we!!". So last Saturday saw us staring up at this astonishing building
|Currently the tallest building in western Europe|
It takes seconds to get up to the 72nd floor
And once up there, wow what a view....
So here we go, some of the most famous sights in London, seen from a birds eye view....
|The Tower of London|
|The BT Tower|
|Wembley Stadium, the Champions League final was happening the day we were there. Both teams were from Germany, and the fans were so well behaved. Great atmosphere!|
|St Pauls Cathedral|
|Southwark Cathedral. The line of green marks Borough Market, which we visited when we got our feet back on the ground. Yummy food - we had falafel sandwiches, always a great favourite of ours!|
|River Thames, rolling away towards Westminster|
|River Thames, rolling away towards the East End|
|The Olympic Stadium and the Orbit|
|Sun sparkling on the 30 St Mary Axe, more popularly known as the Gherkin|
|The Monument, marking the site where the Great Fire of London started in 1666. We visited the Monument last August, when the Shard had just been finished.|
