London, from the "Shard"


Recommended Posts

This is brilliant and a MUST SAVE one…..you can spend ages (following instructions) viewing the whole of London from The Shard.


This is spectacular – wonder what the top apartments will cost - looking down Southwark Cathedral looks so small!!!


You might be interested in this view of London from the top of the “Shard” the latest high structure in the City, its crystalline façade rearing 1,016 ft over the London skyline as Europe’s tallest building to date.

The floors of the Shard are allocated as follows: 2 - 28 are offices, 31 – 33 high class restaurants, 34 – 52 is a 5 star hotel complex, 53 - 65 is residential accommodation and 68 - 72 are observation lounges.


You can have much fun swinging the view around (as per the screen instructions) zoom in and out – traverse 360 deg. And see London as never before. Following the long straight rail line approaching – and zooming in on the horizon you will see Greenwich and beyond that on the skyline, Shooters Hill and its water tower. It is almost impossible to be anywhere in Greater London and NOT see the ‘shard’ now.


Move curser or left/right/up down arrows to all round view of London. HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS...........

Link's now OK, at this end, Shortliner. Many thanks.

Not sure if this is the same one, but try this...




Sounds of a (The) city, Nice touch.  I wonder if they can be separated, as a background to model loco sounds ?
