If you’re going have a ridiculous, ostentatious drink in a shimmering citadel of steel and glass, you might as well go to the top of the mountain and head to the tallest building in town. Aqua Shard is ridiculous - super high ceilings, super expensive drinks, and the bogs will have the more sensitive among us trembling with vertigo (upside - the best toilet selfies anywhere in London). You’ll also need to book ahead to be on the safe side - the views are worth it, though.
