Absolutely amazing views across London we went late afternoon and stayed until sun set so we could see the London skyline lighting up. Staff were very efficient and we didn't have to queue much to get in. My only complaint would be it's not cheap...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
