Get your ticket to 'The View from The Shard' and enjoy sweeping vistas of the London cityscape. As the tallest building in Western Europe, the Shard offers panoramic views of up to 40 miles (64 km) across the capital. Take a high-speed elevator to one of the viewing decks and marvel at the sights, including great angles of main attractions like the London Eye and Tower Bridge. Complement your experience with a glass of champagne (upgrade required).
What to Expect
Rise above the bustle of central London on this visit to the ‘The View’ – the exhilarating observation deck on the highest floors of the Shard. Designed by esteemed architect Renzo Piano in the early 2000s, this record-breaking glass skyscraper gives a contemporary edge to the London skyline, and offers visitors unencumbered views of every city district. 
To begin your visit, make your way to the Shard in the hip London Bridge Quarter near Borough Market. Show your pre-purchased ticket and jump the queue to the next viewing time. Then climb aboard the high-speed elevator, which will whisk you to ‘The View,’ located on floors 68, 69 and 72. 
From your lofty vantage point, enjoy unique views of the capital including main attractions like Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Big Ben and St Paul’s Cathedral. Quietly soak up the grandeur of the city, or step up to an Interactive telescope to hear background information on the major sites and learn some of the city’s fascinating history. For the more adventurous visitor, head to level 72 – the Shard’s open-air viewing platform – for sweeping panoramic views of London. Before heading back into the city, perhaps toast your trip to the highest point in Western Europe with a glass of champagne (available with upgrade).

Yes, we bought our ticket via Red Letter days which included a meal at a 5 star restaurant. We at the time of purchase stated the day we would visit. All tickets came via the post.

Yes you just turn up at the office at the base of the building. It is clearly marked where to go despite all the construction going on around the building.
