Not a Trip up the Shard, London

In this post I was expecting to bore you with a trip to the top of the viewing area of the Shard in London and some marvellous pictures of the view. Instead this is what we saw:










Lots and lots of fire engines and other blue light vehicles (if you like firemen, this was the place to be yesterday). This was not part of the plan.

We did other local stuff for a couple of hours and had some lunch but by this time it was becoming clear that we weren’t going to be able to go up.

This was really disappointing not least because this has been planned since January and the weather was fine unlike the day before when it had been raining.

So we get to do it all again at some point in the future but I’m taking my lucky clover with me next time!


This arrived this morning. Seem like a pretty stupid email to send out the day after it was shut but I am guessing it was too difficult to turn off or they just didn’t know how to.
