First, I need to tell you that this place is not cheap. Second, during May, you do not need to book in advance and risk having your view spoiled by a cloudy or rainy day. We arrived just before the 10 AM opening time and...More

Make time time for this! Best view of London to be had! This unique building is worth seeing inside and out and the views from the top observation floor are simply stunning.

Great view but ridiculously expensive, far more than I've paid at the Burj Khalifa or similar towers around the world.

Booked our tickets online to arrive at the site. Entrance in the basement just off London Bridge tube station. Well signposted. Short brief security check and then onto the first lift to halfway. Then onto the next lift to level 68 (I think). Last three...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
