Full description

Watch the streets of London fall away as you climb to Western Europe’s tallest viewing platform on the 72nd floor of The Shard. With a flexible ticket, spend as much time as you like enjoying panoramic views of the city, with visibility of up to 40 miles. Test your limits and step outside onto the open viewing platform on the 72nd floor, or admire the views from inside. Learn about London’s history through multimedia displays and exhibits, or simply sit back and enjoy the view from the champagne bar.  The Shard redefines London’s skyline and will soon be a dynamic symbol of the city, recognizable throughout the world. The unique building features a sculpted design of glass facets that incline inward without meeting at the top to allow the building to breathe naturally. Sneak a glance upward at the points of glass that form the top of the building, which reaches a height of 1,016 feet (310 meters). Finish up your journey in the boutique, where you can purchase a souvenir photograph.

I do recommend buying tickets in advance because the queue was long and we were able to wait to be called and let in. As an experience, we really enjoyed it! We wound up having a couple of drinks on the Sky Deck during sunset hours. Libby was a fantastic, warm, and knowledgeable server that made our time there the absolute tops (thank you!!). Definitely go once and take in the views. :)

Nice place to visit. Best view in London. Very kind staff. If you have spare 13 pounds then you can enjoy glass of beer :) . Anyway better then London eye - maybe 5 times higher and you can stay there for an hour if you want for the same price as London eye.

In my experience the Shard is way better than other vantage points 'eye' can think of. Booking ahead is essential to avoid queuing for too long. Our visit was well organised by the Shard staff and although it was very busy, there was plenty of time to take in the superb views and have a drink in the bar. Loved it!
