Skyscraper Shard's sell-out view

Shard

The UK's tallest building has sold out of tickets for the opening of its viewing platform on 1 February.

The Shard in London will offer a spectacular view of the capital from a platform nearly 250 metres high.

Visitors will be able to look through special telescopes, which show live pictures, as well as what London looks like at night.

The triangular-shaped building also has offices, three floors of restaurants, luxury apartments and a huge hotel.
