Though most famous for the imprisonments and beheadings held there it has, at various times, served as the royal residence, mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and as the holding place for the Crown Jewels - a function it still serves. Legend has it that six ravens must guard the tower at all times, or else the kingdom (as in United Kingdom) will fall. The ravens are still there, and so is this nearly thousand year old complex of stocky stone structures.

The 95-story Shard was designed by world renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano. This architectural marvel is the tallest building in the European Union, and its distinctive shape has redefined the London skyline. If you visit The View From The Shard, you'll get a breathtaking 360-degree view of London from more than 300 meters above the city.
