The Shard, the European Union's tallest building, is a sight to behold. It's no surprise that wait lines to get into London's sleek skyscraper can be upwards of an hour. Instead of waiting to get your ticket, and then waiting again to get onto the elevators for a ride up the 1,016-feet (310-meter) building, take advantage of fast-track entry with this pass. Your guide already has your tickets when you meet up for a fish and chips dinner at Borough Market. When it's time to head into The Shard, breeze past the lines and zip up to the View's observation floors for unbeatable looks at London’s twinkling lights and floodlit landmarks such as the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, and Big Ben!

What You Can Expect

Skip-the-Line Entry to The Shard at Night with Borough Market Dinner

Enjoy your fish and chips dinner at Borough Market

Meet your friendly guide near London Bridge rail station and take the short walk to Borough Market, one of London’s largest food markets. Filled with stalls selling British and international produce, “London’s Larder” (as it’s known locally) has a vibrant atmosphere that spills over into the surrounding streets and lanes.

Listen to stories about this historic market, whose roots stretch back to the 13th century, as your guide leads you to a traditional English pub. Run by the National Trust, this cozy place is every inch the charmer, with English draft beer on tap and classic English food. Here, savor mouthwatering fish and chips that you get to wash down with a glass of soda or English cider as your guide shares facts about The Shard and the view from its top.

After dinner, stroll to the nearby Shard. Tickets to the skyscraper's View observation floors are limited and sell out fast, but you won't have to worry about that. Upon arrival, a Shard ambassador grants you priority access to the viewing areas on the 68th, 69th and 72nd floors. Ride one of the high-speed elevators up some 800 feet (244 meters) to find stupendous 360-degree views of iconic London sights blanketed in twinkling lights. Spot St Paul’s Cathedral, London Eye, Tower of London, Big Ben, among other landmarks, as your guide shares fascinating commentary.

Your experience ends when you leave The Shard and say goodbye to your guide outside this incredible building.
