South Bank Glass Landmarks in London, England

There is a delightful promenade on both sides of the Tower Bridge and in front of the Tower of London. These benches provide front row seating to admire glass landmarks on the South Bank of the River Thames in the Southwark Borough. The spherical building on the left, created by architect Norman Foster, is City Hall. The offices for the mayor, the London Assembly and the Greater London Authority opened in 2002. In the center is More London. This complex includes offices, stores, restaurants and an amphitheater named The Scoop. On the right is The Shard. When construction ended in 2012, the skyscraper became the United Kingdom’s tallest at 1,016 feet. Among its 95 floors designed by Renzo Piano are retailers, offices and residential units. Tourists are delighted by the observation decks called The View from the Shard.
