Need to Know: The Shard

Need to Know: The Shard

Need to Know: The Shard

Move over Big Ben — London’s got a new phallic homage to human progress: more than a thousand feet of spiking glass. 

Britain’s 21st-century response to Paris’s Eiffel Tower, the Shard has dramatically changed the city’s landscape, pulling away from its museum-like center. Visitors can tour the tower with a ticket straight to the top, but we prefer the full experience at the Shangri-La Hotel, which lives high in the translucent structure.

Try dinner at Ting, the signature restaurant, and enjoy a menu of elegantly prepared food that mirrors the chic simplicity of the Shard itself. At sunset, sip cocktails that draw upon the brand’s Asian roots. 31 St. Thomas St.;
