The View from the Top of the Shard: A 360 Interactive Tour of London


Using images taken from the building’s public open-air observation deck, this interactive piece lets you explore both the sights and sounds of London (quite literally). It’s impressive how much you can actually zoom in on a small section and the details you can spot, particularly when you remember that all the images were taken from high atop the structure. Definitely explore around and get lost a while, here.

London’s Shard is a 96-story skyscraper that was inaugurated last July (2012), but officially opened to the public at the start of February. At 1,016 feet tall, the Shard is the tallest building in the EU and the second tallest in Europe.
