Owner description: The View from The Shard is the visitor attraction at the top of The Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe and London's newest landmark. At almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in London, it offers visitors spectacular 360 degree views over the UK's capital for up to 40 miles.

Went on the website the previous evening (11pm) and we were disappointed that their was no possibility of booking for the next day. However we decided to go and look at The Shard and were delighted to discover that all time slots were available.
The whole experience was fantastic ALL the staff were friendly and helpful . The view was stunning .......it was a clear day! We stayed up there' for 90 minutes so worked out it cost 33p a minute. Saw planes taking off from Heathrow and also passing The Shard,Twickenham, Wembley, Alexandra Palace and train lines disappearing to Kent. We also saw men abseil down the side. They were doing some maintenance work.
It was a great experience and can recommend it .......on a fine day!

An amazing experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing.

Yes it is expensive but what a view and the getting up and down is great vastly superior to places like Empire State.

Go go go.

Really well organised experience. No queues, really polite staff, quick to the top & fantastic views with no squashing or shoving to get a good view!

If you love London you'll love these views!

Although I have an irrational fear of heights, I am always looking to conquer this phobia. This was therefore the rationale behind booking to see the view from the shard. The cost is quite pricey, but as stated elsewhere, the staff are brilliant. The lifts effortlessly and rapidly ascend the tower and as for the views, all I can say is "Wow!" I even managed to walk around the viewing gallery which is open to elements (which I thought I would never do!). Unless you book a helicopter, you will never get a better view of London.

Great views of London but at £25 its way,way overpriced.The Eiffel Tower is half as much which sounds about right.It was very quiet when we went.I wonder why?
