Sarah at The View from The Shard.

GTO‘s Business Development Manager, Sarah Jeffery, was recently invited to visit The Shard in London by Ana Araque, its Travel Trade Marketing Manager. Western Europe’s tallest building, standing at an amazing 800 feet high, it is the only place where visitors can see the entire city of London at once. Upon arrival, Sarah embarked on a high-speed lift to the viewing platform on Level 69, where interactive touchscreens enable guests to explore the views in greater detail. Continuing to Level 72, Sarah arrived at the open-air viewing gallery, where she could view the very top of the building, as well as being able to walk all around it, taking in magnificent views over the city. In the unlikely event that your group can’t see at least three of the following landmarks – The London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, The Gherkin, Tower Bridge and One Canada Square – on the day of your visit, The Shard will issue each member with a ticket to return for free within three months
