Shard

Last weekend we hosted a family get together for fathers day and Hannah’s birthday. We had a lovely day, Martin brought his pressure washer up so that we could clean the patio slabs.

Hannah and I went into London for her birthday.

We went up The Shard, the tallest ‘building’ in the European Union, which really isn’t very tall at a mear 309.6 m (The CN tower’s observation deck is at 342 m, the tower goes on to be 553 m high and then there is the 828 m tall Burj Khalifa in Dubai), we went up the top floor, being the 72nd floor which is 244.3 m up. It was a pretty stunning view from up there.
