Nothing ever stops in London…
I don’t know what exactly I’ve got to say, but I’m always mind blown when I go on top of the Shard at the Ting Restaurant of the Shangri-La Hotel.
I am more than flabbergasted and what I always realise is that the city of London never stops, never sleeps, never takes a second of break. We are in a constant trepidation, chained to a cycle of life that keeps us moving without us even realising.
But I guess this is a hyper talked about cliche isn’t it?
Let’s take a second of break to admire this beauty. The building of Shard is probably one of the most iconic buildings in London hosting one of the most prestigious hotels, Shangri-La Hotel.
If you’re a #tourist in #London make sure you get to see this incredible building from the outside as well, as it looks just like the typical futuristic construction that you would imagine.
After a morning’s stroll through London’s Borough Market, you enjoy a short walk back to the comfort and elegance of Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London. The 34th to 52nd floors of Renzo Piano’s iconic building house the hotel, which is Shangri-La’s first property in the UK.
When you arrive, you savour a refreshing cup of Chinese tea at TĪNG on level 35, before making your way to your spacious room. Here, floor to ceiling windows showcase breathtaking views of vibrant London, and you watch the life of the city unfold along the River Thames.
An afternoon business meeting, in one of the world’s capitals of global finance, will be easy to reach. The hotel is just across the river from The City of London, and a scenic 15-minute river taxi ride from the Canary Wharf business and commercial hub.
At the end of a busy day, you look forward to relaxing with a cocktail at Shangri-La’s stylish GŎNG bar, on level 52, where you marvel at sparkling city views as the evening sky gently shifts colour.
In the morning, after a dip in the hotel’s indoor infinity pool on level 52, you’ll explore the colourful galleries of Tate Modern and the majestic architecture of St Paul’s Cathedral, both within easy reach. For now, it is time for a peaceful night’s rest in the sanctuary of Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London.
The culinary journey is at the heart of Shangri-La Hotel, at The Shard, London, and guests are spoilt for choice across three unique dining venues.
LÁNG deli, on the ground floor, is the place for take-away morning coffee and pastries, or to enjoy a relaxing glass of wine after work.
Look out over London while you enjoy a decadent afternoon tea at TĪNG. Savour our seasonal menus of modern British dishes with an Asian twist, prepared using fresh ingredients, all sourced from local suppliers in Borough Market.
GŎNG, the highest bar in Western Europe, is the place to go for sunset cocktails and late-night drinks. Located on level 52, enjoy the spectacular views and sip your drink in the stylish atmosphere around a candle-lit swimming pool.
