The day is finally here: the long-awaited Shangri-La at the Shard London is open. Following a traditional Chinese ceremony of ‘awakening the lion’, and ribbon cutting and speech by Mayor Boris Johnson earlier today – two things that surely don’t come together very often – we stopped by this evening to see what difference a month makes.

The answer to that? A lot, with guests milling about restaurant and lounge Tīng on floor 35, where four weeks ago everything was still wrapped in protective plastic and the only guests were hard-hatted construction workers.

This time, we were also able to take plenty of pictures, which we have lots of to share with you – from guestrooms (almost all of the 59 now available were booked out) to the public spaces, and of course, the views out the window. Check back tomorrow for a full tour of what we saw today at Shangri-La.
