The view from The Shard.


The Guardian has created an online experience that allows users to scroll around a super-detailed 360 degree view from London’s tallest building.

The Shard opened to paying visitors earlier this month, but you can have a quick look for free using the online app. The images were created by panoramic photographer, Will Pearson, one taken during the day, one taken at dusk. The app launches with a short intro that takes the user into the lift of The Shard, up to the 68th floor and out on to the viewing platform. It’s worth putting your headphones on to hear the wind in your ears as you arrive virtually at the viewing platform.
