Why pay £25 to go to the top of the Shard when you can spend the same amount on a couple of cocktails from the 31st floor in Aquashard. This large, cavernous space contains a restaurant and modern bar and a glorious view north to the City, west towards St Paul’s and the West end and south east towards Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf. Access is by direct lift from St Thomas Street.

This picture was taken at dusk from The Grapes in Narrow Street, Limehouse. The 9ft statute, on top of a 20ft plinth is by Anthony Gormley and belongs to Sir Ian McKellen, as does the Grapes.
The placement of the sculpture is designed to appear as if standing on water at high tide. It’s fantastic.
