view of The Shard from the footpath below
The Shard is approx 306 metres high, and is the tallest building in the European Union. That's tall enough to give you a neck ache!
yummy beers - The Kernel Brewery
Just a short walk from The Shard is one of London's best kept secrets - The Kernel Brewery. The Kernel is open every Saturday from 9am to 2pm, and draws a good local crowd who cool off with a fresh pint in the warehouse/stockroom, where all the beer is kept. For those who want to take some beer home, you can purchase the beers by the bottle as well.
The beer is pretty damn good, but I may be biased - as it's brewed with New Zealand hops. A taste of home.
Happy weekend everyone!
