Tourists whine trip to Britain’s tallest building The Shard ruined as it’s ‘too high’ in bizarre TripAdvisor reviews


UNHAPPY tourists have slammed The Shard in bizarre TripAdvisor reviews – for being “too high”.

The towering building, said to be the tallest in London, measures 309.6m tall and offers unrivalled views of the city and beyond.

But tourists flocking to the landmark building were left unimpressed with their experience, after taking photos from 800ft above the city from the building’s viewing platform, The View.

Tickets for the chance to take in the breathtaking panoramic review set punters back around £25 - but some felt it wasn’t worth the cash.

One user, who gave it four-star review, said: "Good views but maybe too high for good pictures” while another said: "I didn't look at the view - too high."

A third said they were "underwhelmed" by the whole experience.

Rachburge from Milton Keynes found the 360o viewing gallery "very dull” - and didn’t like the state of the toilets.

Another disgruntled reviewer said: "Poor experience, long waits to the elevators and the resulting marginal view from the viewing area of this supposedly tall building."

But not everyone feels let down by the lofty tourist attraction.

Rave reviews included "unbeatable", "top class" and an "out of this world experience".

TripAdvisor has also awarded the building a 'certificate of excellence' something which is typically given to attractions that repeatedly get glowing reviews and feedback from visitors.

It’s not the first-time people have posted bizarre moans on TripAdvisor and slammed London’s tourist attractions.

In January this year, visitors to the Tower of London moaned the world-famous building was “unsuitable for kids”due to its “bloody past”.

Meanwhile, snowflakes moaned that that Mount Snowdon is too steep and rocky and how the Lake District’s boss thinks the area is too white.
