Tonight, Europe's tallest building gets its official opening in central London. The Shard will lit up by a spectacular laser show of 12 lasres and 30 search lights beaming across the skyline for a grand public inauguration.

The Shard will be the tallest building in Western Europe, its crystalline façade transforming the London skyline with a mixed-use 310 m (1,016 ft) vertical city of high-quality offices, world-renowned restaurants, the 5-star Shangri-La hotel, exclusive residential apartments and the capital's highest viewing gallery offering 360° views.

Well-connected and comprehensively serviced by central London's transport infrastructure, facilities and amenities, the Shard is a timeless reminder of the power of imagination to inspire change.

The inauguration will take place from 10pm on 5th July 2012.
