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.  At a height of 1,016 feet, or 310 meters, 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 before finishing up your journey in the boutique, where you can purchase a souvenir photograph. Please note that opening times can vary due to special events.

Booked for my Sons 18th as a surprise his often looked at the Shard when he was much younger and said he would like to go up and now he has & we weren’t disappointed . Wow factor in bundles it was a fabulous clear day across London so couldn’t have asked for better weather to view the sights fabulous experience it does get rather busy around the viewing points but there’s still plenty of space to take pictures and just stand & be wowed!! Defo worth the wait to see it !!

Well worth booking the Shard, the views from every side of the building is beautiful and well worth a visit. You will enjoy seeing London from the skies, the views are awesome and you will take the best selfies and photographs of London from above. We went in daylight and ended up in the evening, we saw the sunset and the night lights, which was magical and the most awesome experience. We booked fastrack, which was excellent. We received the brochure and free drink. You really need the cold drink up there. The best is at the top of Shard.

It was magical to see London at nighttime from the Shard. We couldn't find the meeting point .. instructions could be better eg " meet under the big escalator" as Joiner street doesn't exist. Apart from the stress of not being able to find the meeting point, we really enjoyed going up the Shard.
