Damien on… The Shard
I escaped cold, wet, miserable, over-priced Britain over a decade ago.
And today, I was reminded of just why. I learned that a new London attraction is the observation gallery of The Shard – a thousand foot glass spike, in The City.
Said gallery is on the 72nd floor, at only around eight hundred feet up – but the rest of the building is just architectural whimsy anyway.
However, what blew my mind was the PRICE being asked for going up there. A quid? Two? Surely not five? No – they want TWENTY-FIVE POUNDS PER PERSON!!!
Now I don’t mind paying a few quid to get high, but are they freakin’ KIDDING?
I wonder how many potential sightseers, on learning how much it would cost – told them where they could STICK their Shard?
