Shangri-La The Shard, Southwark, London
The highest luxury hotel in London, the Shangri-la occupies levels 35 to 52 of the iconic Shard building in London Bridge. Come for stunning views of the cityscape that make buildings such as St Paul's Cathedral and the London Eye look like toy models. Eat plates of sushi washed down with high-end cocktails in GŎNG Bar or dine on crispy duck and wagyu beef in TĪNG. On the highest level is an infinity pool, gym and sauna with the whole north bank of the river Thames as a backdrop. You won't want to close the shutters in your room so you wake to the pink-tinged sunrise and sleep to the twinkling lights of the city at night.
This is a great opportunity to get inside Renzo Piano's iconic building.
The Shard hugs the southbank of the River Thames and from here, you have the city at your feet. Minutes away are Borough Market and London Bridge.
By car: the hotel is 4.5 hours from Manchester and 3 hours from Bristol. Parking costs £55 per day.
By train: London Bridge station is two minutes' walk away. London Waterloo is 20 minutes by taxi. thetrainline.com
