Yesterday, Tolworth Roundabout. Today, The Shard!

So today found us in a much more sophisticated environment – we went for a meal in The Shard!  For those who don’t know, The Shard is currently the highest skyscraper in the EU with 87 floors.

We went to the Aqua Shard restaurant on the 31st floor, and even from there the views were incredible.  The food and the service were nothing to write home about but J wanted to give the girls a proper grown-up dining experience, which he succeeded in doing.  And we all admired the views.  Well, I say ‘all’, but J has vertigo.  Why you would book a restaurant on the 31st floor if you have vertigo beats me…

I am happy to say the girls are becoming seasoned Londoners: tackling the crowds and the long tube journeys with ease.  They recognised quite a few sights from The Shard such as Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Thames and St Paul’s Cathedral.  Next job for me is to get them fitter so we can do MORE visits to London!
