It was a PR initiative fom the developers, administered by Southwark.
I also went up yesterday - we were so fortunate to have sunshine, after such a murky week - and my guests and I all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
All the staff were friendly and courteous; the lifts were swift and smooth; the gift shop, not too tacky; the view? Fantastic.
Even the window cleaners appeared - at the very top - and gave us a wave and a smile :-)
Thank you to the Shard folk and to Southwark Council
