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.

Great time spent in The Shard! Lovely views, easy to reach. No time limit to stay in the viewing gallery.. Got some excellent photos there and found it quite relaxing! Glass was a bit grubby so made taking good quality pictures a little difficult but got some in the end! Friendly tour guide explained history of some bridges on the Thames from the windows of the 72nd floor viewing area..

Too crowded

This is not due to the attraction site's fault but the palace gets insanely crowded that even when you are trying to stop and take in the details of the palace, you get swept away by the crowd and almost forcefully carried away. This guide would've been so much more enjoyable if the crowd was reduced to at least half. The palace itself is very beautiful and I highly recommend going during off season (if there is one).

Amazing experience. Great views. We had bought the ticket for 16.45, but we entered an hour earlier - no one pays attention to the time of the ordered trip. You come and you come in. Access to the Shard is very well marked - arrows lead you from London Bridge station. At the very top there are a few sofas - you can sit and relax. The upper terrace is unroofed. The panorama of the city after dusk looks spectacular. Be sure to visit the toilet!
