Second trip to this place and much better weather this time. The positioning of this tower makes spectacular views across London, with the city directly north over the river, Tower Bridge to the east and St Pauls and The Eye to the west. We spent a long time photographing this place as i don't think we'll get the same conditions for a while.

This place is changing rapidly and more and more floors are being stripped out so it was great to get back in there before its too late. Role on the Shard of Glass!
Great explore and big thanks to Palace Fan for driving.:thumb

A bit of info. . .

32 London Bridge Street near London Bridge station, in Southwark and stands directly over London Bridge station. Completed in 1976, it is currently being demolished to make way for the construction of Shard London Bridge, a skyscraper which will become London's tallest building.

Despite a modern-looking and lavish reception area, the building and its decorations became dated. Lifts in the building were slow and struggled to cope with traffic during peak hours. Nevertheless, some wings of the upper floors enjoyed spectacular views of Tower Bridge and the City. The building's tenants have now moved to nearby sites in Union Street and Hay's Galleria.
The photos . . .

As Tank said the insides are slowly getting gutted, but I have a sneaky suspicion this place might have a nice basement worth a look. The crane from what I can see is not really earning its money, as all it seems to have done is load the roof with scaf.

Gonna chuck my pics up, but Tank has bagged the best, I reckon its that new mega-camera of his. :thumb

A good last minute explore.

Caution: London Bridge station below, very busy, and very possible terr*rist threat!
