Great way to get an overview of the city and the Thames as well as knowledge of this amazing building. an attraction in its own right Everything is well structured - entrance/ticket office is located as you exit the London Bridge Underground. Recommended
Did this tour on a dreary grey Friday around 5:30 pm so the view was less spectacular than it could have been
but incredible just the same. The Shard is located immediately beside the London Bridge tube stop so very accessible.
I was a bit nervous being up on the 69th floor a bit agrophobic and the circumference of the viewing space
is adequate but smaller than I expected so was not inclined to linger. Well worth doing and seeing however.
The 360 degree view of the city is remarkable.
city was extraordinary.
Great tour! Lots of interesting facts and information. At first, I wasn't sure about the Beefeater tour because I had tweens in tow, but it is a definite MUST, they loved it and so did I! Tours are every half hour and lasts only an hour. We headed to Crown Jewels first as I had read a line forms to get in. So amazing! Great views of the Tower of London Bridge from inside and as you exit towards the bridge. My daughter says it was one of her favorite things that she did! Go, and go early!
The Shard is right next to London Bridge tube station. People were friendly, but the fee to go up 60 some odd floors was over priced. Nice view but really not very high, You can get some nice aerial views of the Tower of London and other hot spots.
Highly recommended as a London experience. All Shard staff very helpful. Very good that there is no restriction on time when at the viewing platforms. A coffe shop at the entrance would be a good addition, also seating on the viewing platforms for those not so able bodied. Shard sinage needed on London Bridge Station and neartby streets as a guide.
Really enjoyed this pass and felt we got our monies worth. Probably saved about $50 each based on what we saw. Even though some of the reviews say the museums are all free, that's not the case. For example, the Churchill War Rooms and Britain Guard Museum both charged, and I think many others do as well. The only thing we saw that I didn't care for was the London Bridge Experience, waste of time. Everything else was great!
Be aware that they only accept paper vouchers at this venue. It was a hassle getting in but the experience of seeing the Tower of London was fantastic! Well worth it. We took so many photos as there are some great vantage points for London Bridge, The Gherkhin, The Shard, all set behind this beautiful historic site.

We packed a lot into that 2 day pass. We did the Tower of London, London Bridge, Windsor Castle, Globe Theater, used the pass for discounts to the Clink prison museum. There really are too many choices to do in so little time.

We got the 3 day pass and travel card. Well worth it. Underground, DLR, buses were all covered. We visited Tower of London, Tower bridge, St'Paul's, London Bridge, and Greenwich. The six day pass would have been excellent to cover most places, but we had only 3 days. Would definitely recommend the pass. If possible , collect it it a day prior to sightseeing from the visitor center, so you can use the Travel Card right away, next morning. The travel guide needs updating. Website was more accurate.

We had a very interesting visit to the Tower of London. The Crown Jewels were beautiful and the history of the tower is amazing. London Bridge is right next to the tower and a great photo opportunity. I'm glad we had tickets beforehand.
Pretty good value for money but it takes excellent organisation of your time and sticking to the schedule to make it worth while. We had a two day pass and spend a whole day in London Zoo (probably shouldnt have spent so long there but oh well). The second day we spend around 3 hours in the Tower of London. We then saw the Tower bridge exhibition, London Bridge Experience, and London Tombs. We also used the Hop on hop off boat tour thing to get back to Greenwhich which was really good. So we did end up getting our moneys worth but barely. London bridge experience was pretty awful, London tombs were good but quite clearly only meant to scare you and not really give you any history so again, silly tourist grabbing attraction. The tower bridge exhibition is an alright 40 minute quick thing to get across the river. Might aswell, why not? But only one walkway was open so only got views to the east and not the City. Tower of London and Zoo by far the best two. Oh and the boat was pretty good for getting round and the guide was a classic ole cockney man. Didnt have to que anywhere and did get fast track but that could be the timing that we got lucky with. Oh and check the times of the attractions! Most have last entry at like 5pm. Reasono we missed the London bridge experience the first day was because we thought as a scary thing itd be much later than this. Overall not bad but.... Depends what you want to see and how organised you can be.
