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.
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.
The view of the Tower Bridge was incredible.
Definitely the best view we had all week.
The View from The Shard offers 360 degree panoramic views of London.
As the sun started to set, everything turned golden, pink, and hazy.
Loved watching the sunset over the London Eye.
Seriously just stunning views of the city.
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.
We gazed out over London and watched the city lights turn on one by one.
Loved watching the city light up.
Gorgeous London! I would go back here in a heartbeat for this view.
Loved watching the trains run in and out of the city. Would highly recommend adding this to your London itinerary!
