The Shard Introduction

Towering 95 storeys and over 300 metres above London Bridge and the snaking River Thames, The Shard is one of the tallest buildings in Europe. Its impressive architectural design and striking modernist look has elevated it to something of an icon of the capital, while a smattering of venues within make it a great place to catch sweeping panoramas with a highball cocktail in hand. You can head to the soaring View from The Shard platforms on the 68th floor before settling in the swish lounges of Aqua Shard for drinks and food above the twinkling lights of the city below.

Hotels near The Shard

Shard hotels do well to channel the cutting-edge and innovative vibes of the Southwark area. Often decorated with designer interiors and adorned with avant-garde art, they hide in the steel-clad skyscrapers with their spa facilities and cool cocktail bars. Others are penthouse apartments with large lounges and plush kitchen spaces. Most of the options tend to get pricier in the summer months, when sightseers descend on Central London. There's also a huge spike in rates around Christmas and New Year, typically because of the countless shoppers and revellers that flock to the Big Smoke then.

Where to stay near The Shard

Seek out Shard hotel deals to bed down in one of the most coveted areas of London. A fusion of businesses, restaurants and swish apartment blocks, the whole district of Southwark pulses with life from morning to night. The streets that shoot off Tower Bridge Road are where you'll find the chic penthouses frequented by London's bankers and business folk. For something a little quieter – and, usually, cheaper – the area of Walworth can be reached quickly on the Tube going south. That's got hostels and dormitories and English inns that are suited to budget types.

You can shop for British delicacies in the bustling stalls of Borough Market before strolling the promenade to see London Bridge and the HMS Belfast in the water. The macabre Clink Prison Museum exhibits offer grisly artefacts in old cells close by, while the famous Tower of London and its ghostly rooms are just across the river.
