After Canary Wharf I still had a bit of time before my flight and as the weather was OK, which in England means it wasnt raining, I headed over to Tower Bridge to check out The Shard.

When completed it will be the tallest building in the EU at 310 meters. It was designed by Renzo Piano who also designed Kansai Airport.

Nearby is the More London complex of buildings designed by Norman Foster, including of course....

London City Hall, described by Ken Livingston as a testicle.

There is of course lots of more traditional brick architecture still left in the area......
