Our trip to visit the Shard In London

Daddy took us all up to the big city of smoke, London on Saturday evening. We picked up Jak after he finished his drama lessons and we drove up to London to have a look at the Europe’s tallest building, The Shard. The building has an amazing 72 floors and is the home to office blocks, restaurants, residents, the Shangri-La Hotel and viewing platforms. Standing 309.6 metres (1,016 ft) high it is completely clad in glass made to look like a shard of glass.

The building is absolutely huge and can be seen from miles and miles away, it towers over any other building in London. The boys thought it was amazing and really enjoyed standing at the bottom of the building on the ground and looking up at it.

We also popped down to the river Thames to see the olympic rings that are hanging at the top of the Tower Bridge, we took a few photographs, enjoyed the views then on our way back to the car we noticed a little water feature that was running along the floor, which kind of looked like a mini river, Joseph enjoyed jumping over it shouting “I’m leaping over the Thames”. We popped into a Tesco Metro and bought a few items of food that we could have a late picnic with and drove down to the London Eye and found a spot on the grass just by the side of the new wooden park that has been built there recently. After eating the boys had some fun in the park and then we all had a little stroll down the southbank watching all of the street performances.

It was a lovely enjoyable evening and the boys had lots of fun, they even fell asleep in the car on the way home. We noticed we was driving in the olympic lane so thank god it’s not in place just yet.

Thank you for reading 🙂
