Visiting the Shard

Hello my lovelies! 

Last weekend I took a trip to the Shard in London, and wanted to share my experience with you!



 

On Saturday, it was a beautiful day, marking the 1st November 2014. It was my Dad's birthday so we decided to celebrate and visit the Shard, and take in the spectacular views of London. The weather was perfect. 

I really enjoyed the experience, and it was well worth the money. You could literally see for miles, and I could see both where I work, and basically my house from the top, which was pretty awesome. All in all we spent about an hour on the viewing platforms and I loved every second. I've heard some people really don't like the height, and it is a little daunting, but honestly it's doesn't feel too much like you're on the edge so to speak, so if you're afraid of heights I'd still give it a go.

One thing which I wasn't please with was going through security on the way in. It's basically the exact same system as airport security, which is fine. It's not fine however when the security woman drops your camera. On to the very hard floor. Yep. Thanks for that! I did have a little sob but we won't talk about that. 

The camera is fine.. sort of. It's been playing up recently anyway, and this was like the icing on the cake to make me decide it's time to save up for another one... 

In the gift shop I bought some goodies too, they have a really nice guide book and a super duper cool pen. Yes, I am aware I sound about six years old - but it's a cool pen okay? They also had a penny machine, where you get a penny squashed and it has a image embossed onto it. I collect these so it made me a very happy Becca.

Afterwards, we went for a walk around Borough Market, which I loved. It was so busy and my god the smell of food was amazing. I was already hungry but this made my stomach need food. There were so many choices, but I couldn't resist sausage and chips. They were literally the best I've ever taken. I shall be going back. I shall. 

We sat by a beautiful church to eat, looking over at the Shard, and it was quite frankly, lovely. Saturday was such a nice day, after all the excitement in the day time, I went to a fireworks display in the evening, and finished the whole day off with the pub. Fab.
