Sarah admits that The Shard — the tallest building in western Europe, at nearly 310 meters (or about 1,017 feet) — is actually really impressive. “It’s definitely worth the trip to the top to see 360-degree views, especially at sunset," she says. "I’d choose this over the London Eye,” the city’s immensely popular city Ferris wheel.
However, she suggests you save yourself some pounds on the pricey ticket and visit one of The Shard’s six restaurants for a drink instead. “You still get an amazing view and you can enjoy incredible London views with a cocktail in hand.”
As for Gemma, she loves the tourist-friendly Natural History Museum. “The architecture of the building is just gorgeous, and the entrance is super impressive.” She also likes going in the winter for the magical outdoor ice rink, where you can sip wine and listen to live music.
