We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect last night in London. We spent an unforgettable evening 72-stories above the city, watching a vibrant, fiery sunset at The View from The Shard.

(Click here to see what we did on Day 1, 2, 3, and 4 in London.)

Not only is this London’s highest viewing platform, it’s also located at the top of the tallest building in Western Europe. Hands down, this was one of my favorite things we did in London.

There’s even a champagne bar, so this would be the perfect place to have a romantic drink before dinner.

As soon as the sun set, a nearly full moon appeared over the Tower Bridge.
