The view from the top
Looking down on London from the top of the Shard - my birthday treat today. The weather was overcast, but that didn't limit the views. Simply stunning. I'm afraid my iphone photos don't do full justice. But you'll get a sense of how far you could see.My benefactor
Looking east, you could see the Thames Barrier clearly, and make out the wind turbines a few miles further up stream - and on the horizon the cranes at Tilbury or somewhere out that way.
To the north, both Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath stood out, along with the turquoise cupola of St Joseph's on Highgate hill. The Olympic Park and the Emirates Stadium were both in clear view.
To the west, you could follow river along its gentle sweep past Battersea Power Station and towards Berkshire. All agreed, a good afternoon outing.
