The Building of The Shard

Thursday, May 03, 2012

London’s skyline is constantly changing and visitors to our capital city cannot avoid noticing the striking outline of London’s newest skyscraper, known as The Shard. Nearing completion, this will contain one of the finest hotels in the country and at 1,016 feet it is regarded as one of the most ambitious architectural feats in the country. The Shangri-La hotel at the top of the Shard will provide Far Eastern luxury for the discerning traveller.


If you cannot wait until 2013 to come and visit us when the hotel is due to open, Classic England Tours provides clients with a wide range of accommodation choices from cosy B&B’s, country Inns, sumptuous castle hotels and country mansions. Choose from our range of Platinum Tours, which include Fine Dining Tours, Castle Tours and even Helicopter Tours and you will experience the finest that England can offer. Stay in a rural paradise in Oxfordshire at Raymond Blanc’s Manoir Aux Quatre Saisons  or the historically significant Cliveden House in Royal Buckinghamshire.

We regularly visit the hotels that we choose for our clients to ensure that they receive the highest standards of quality and service. If you have any questions about the hotels we recommend, or if you wish us to prepare a personally planned itinerary for your private tour of any region of England, please contact us.
