SHANGRI LA THE SHARD, LONDON

This hotel is incredible – and I loved it’s location. Down near London Bridge and canary wharf, where So much is happening. Borough Market, lots of sood trucks and pop-up restaurants, micro breweries etc. So hip and happening!

I would definitely stay here again – perfect for younger couples or those who have travelled to London before and want to see it from a different perspective.

Rooms here are so large and all have the most amazing view of London City. My Room overlooked St Pauls Cathedral, and the bath was right next to the window. Even the toilet seat was heated!

The food here was some of the best I had on the trip. They have a really cool bar up the top which has funky cocktails and is aiming to get on the “best bars in the world” list for 2019. The hotel is right next to London Bridge Tube station, so very easy to access the rest of the city.
