What You Can Expect

The View from The Shard Entrance Ticket with Optional Champagne

The View of The Shard

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).

You MUST visit the Shard during your stay in London. It was a lovely experience and we had so much fun. I took great pictures of the Tower Bridge, St Paul and Westminster plus I have now a good overview of the London map in my mind. Really recommended

Excellent. Would highly recommend this to visitors. The information given on each view is also excellent. Didn't take the optional champagne!
A visit to the Shard is a must if you are visiting London!

Very smooth experience! We basically walked on to the elevators without any waiting. The staff was all very friendly and professional. Amazing views! Definitely worth the price. We will bring our kids back on the next trip to London and take them to the top of the Shard.

The problem with pre booking is that you can't guarantee the weather but I wouldn't be put off by this as we visited on a cloudy day and the whole experience was outstanding. The loos with a view were amazing too !

Fantastic trip - The Shard is the best tall building I have been up - tops Melbourne, Paris and New York!
We were lucky that there were no queues and we had a lovely sunny day so the views were amazing.
Champagne was tasty too! Staff were friendly.
The only issue I had was trying to book a slot as was indicated in our e mail and on the ticket. It stated that we should call the Shard but they said they did not book 3rd parties and referred us back to Viator. Viator did sort me out but only after holding on for 35 mins for an operator.

Excellent. Go 30 minutes before sunset to appreciate the lights and watch the moon rise over Tower Bridge, if you're lucky like we were. Very professionally run, polite, efficient staff. The gift shop is good too.
