The Shard, officially the tallest building in Europe, is due to be unveiled to the public shortly, marked with a spectacular laser and light show which will illuminate the London skyline.
A multipurpose construction which dwarfs comparable structures such as the Gherkin and the BT Tower, some of the Shard`s many features will include a luxury hotel, several restaurants, extensive office space and penthouse flats.
The building currently has 72 floors which are in use, along with a viewing platform offering incredible panoramic views over Europe`s largest metropolis.
Some other interesting facts about The Shard include that it boasts no less than 11,000 windows and is made up almost entirely of recycled materials.
If you are interested in visiting the UK capital this year to see and explore the Shard or any of the city`s other famous landmarks, be sure to book up soon for a stay at one of the great hotels in London
