The time has come. The View from the Shard is now open. 100 people won tickets to go up on the inaugural day but if you weren’t one of the lucky ones and can’t wait any longer, the Guardian’s new panorama should sate your appetite until you can head up to see the real thing. Similar to the digital telescopes on the actual 68th floor viewing platform, this impressive 360 degree interactive image allow you to zoom in ludicrously close in both day and night mode, giving you a new perspective on famous buildings and the chance to try and spot your roof. They have also included 50 personal stories from Londoners including Billy Brag, Will Self and a range of Guardian critics.

Take a virtual tour now at guardian.co.uk and book tickets for the actual View From the Shard.
