Can't have the poor there, dahling, it's not their sort of place....
What wankers...If for not for the rampant profiteering capitalism, but just because it's so unnecessary. £25 is nowhere near the peak volume/profit price point.
Just hope the company that owns the top floors gets a lot of mistaken deliveries
(Hate to say it, but the view will be amazing - my company had membership of the bar at the top of the Guerkin (and the Shard looks, at least a 3rd taller from a distance) and I don't think anyone's ever taken anyone there without at least on jaw hitting the floor - though a lot of buildings are catching up with the Guerkin and Tower 42 so the 360 panorama isn't what it was, and only getting worse)
I'd imagine the prices would be fantastic, but there's no way I'd book way in advance. Who knows how much you're going to see with shit weather.
True dat...Been up the Gwerking on a foggy day and may aswell have been in a very posh cotton wool factory.
I can state that the view from the top is excellent
ooh, jammy. Where are the photos?
You know you can go up for free?
If you're a fox.
They're appearing in a book about The Shard being published by Renzo Piano...
(Sadly I didn't get the Thames & Hudson gig too)
I'm going first week of February am quite excited
For twice the price of going 80% the way up the Shard can get a flight from London City airport that flies more than twice as high over the top and has a much better view.
Everytime I look at the Shard I get this urge to pinch the top together with my thumb and forefinger. Looks so unfinished
Anyway, I'm going to go to Tower 42 whatever that is and see the view for the price of a drink.
Your best bet is probably the Duck and Waffle, on top of the Heron Tower
No need to book (which you have to for Tower 42) and the drinks aren't as pricey.
Have you seen the top?
My friend who's a builder worked on the Heron Tower and took a load of pics. Good view
You'd end up leaving a long red streak rather than a mess on the pavement. Either way the end result would be the same.
£25 though, joke.
Wwheres the heron tower?
Bishopsgate area I think
I don't watch the muppets you muppet
It's not the muppets, you muppet. It's the Dark Crystal Philistine!! Have you ever watched Labyrinth?? The Warriors? The Wanderers?? ALL films which should be watched multiple times imo
This will be a success because visitors to London, plus not a small number of Londoners, are willing, even enthusiastic, to pay ripoff prices for just about anything. Stupid, but true.
No, Yes (if you're talking, "Warriors, Come out to Play"), No
Tower 42 and Heron Tower are cool.
The food is incredible. The fish starters are just scrumptious, and I quite fancied the sommelier. Add great views.... Total win
Why would Skeksis be up there?
