Concrete Jungle

London – one of the world’s most visited cities, a city of ideas and imagination as well as the capital of the United Kingdom and a 21st-century city with history stretching back to Roman times.

Architectural grandeur rises up all around you. For all lovers of any shapes and curves the architecture type ones 😉 it’s a must visit. London has something for everyone, from history and culture to fine food and good times. I don’t think there is really much to be said about it but to explore the best London has to offer, you have to keep your eyes open and occasionally look up…

The View from The Shard

The Shard, the iconic 87-storey skyscraper standing approximately 306 meters (1,004 ft) high is currently the tallest building in the European Union and the second-tallest free-standing structure in the United Kingdom. It first opened to the public on 1st February 2013, forming part of the London Bridge Quarter development.

Twilight at the Shard proved to be a magical experience as the sky changed from light blue grey and then orange with the twinkling lights of London – North, East, South and West against the famous landmarks, both ancient and contemporary – of St Paul’s Cathedral, The London Eye, The Houses of Parliament and The Gherkin.
