The official opening of the Shard took place last night with a light and sound show. Well that is the official line. Actually it was the official opening of the outside. The inside is now scheduled to open in February 2013. Hailed by the media and its designers as the tallest building in Europe at 310 metres. Hmm isn't the Eiffel tower 320 metres high?
Let's just settle for the tallest building in England then shall we? The lights were pretty last night, most of us didn't hear the sound part of the show, but hey it wasn't raining for once which was a pretty big plus.
