People might be joining the Shard High Club
I was told today that it costs £100 to go to the top of The Shard if you don't buy a ticket in advance.
That's about £1 per storey. Based on this I am going to start charging people £2.50 to visit the upstairs of my flat.

From The Telegraph
Has anybody noticed that on a winters night this building has an uncanny resemblance to Mordor ?
That might explain why one does not simply walk in and take a lift to the 72nd floor without paying.
It has been noted. I think I posted a photoshopped pic earlier in the thread
This story is such bollocks.
The Shard is bringing in a team of lawyers to investigate after staff found a pair of women's black knickers in the men's lavatories at the 68th floor viewing platform of Britain's tallest skyscraper.
Because the first thing you'd do after finding some knickers is hire a team of lawyers.
It's always the first thing I do
As that article mentions, it's quite sad to see the rash of shamefully mediocre skyscrapers that are appearing around London at the moment. The shard is not one of them.
It's more Isengard I'd say.
It's a great addition to the London sjkyline. I can see it from my windows, in fact I can see it from where I am now in bed , I love the way it can look completely different depending on the light.
i thought it was too small to be the shard when i saw it completed
Tall buildings often look surprisingly small when youre up close ime Skyscrapers are best viewed from a distance.
I've just been almost temporarily blinded by looking at the sun's reflection on The Shard. Was really dazzling
I do like the way the light changes on it throughout the day, but still pissed off it doesn't seem to get the sunset like another building near to it.
Anyway, here's some pics
That remind me of Thundercats.
It can't, because of the slope on the surfaces which means that they are always reflecting the upper parts of the sky. As sunset by definition happens near the horizon, there's no way you'd be able to see the reflection of it in the angled surfaces of the Shard (unless you were way higher up than the Shard itself).
I have no idea what Thundercats is so googled and it's a cartoon
If the sunset makes the sky red though it should be nice.
Yeah, well that's more what I was thinking. If you're up close to it, you can see the clouds and sky reflected as in this picture I posted earlier in thread, so I assumed the sunset would show up
There's no picture TitanSound
Not sure if it's a reaction the recent helicopter crash, but recently the top of the thing has been lit up like a Christmas tree at night.
Nah, that's been since before the helicopter crash.
I took a picture of it thinking it was a temporary thing. This was taken on 17 December. Bit fuzzy as it was early hours of the morning and it was too freezing for me to be sticking my head out the window for too long
Here's a quick snapshot of how it looks now:
I need to buy a tripod!
