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).

Worth it. The normal line was not very long when we went but it was freezing cold and you should get skip-the-line if you go. Important: the voucher says you can bring an e-voucher but I had to print out my voucher at the Shard to get entry.

Booked this in advance as part of a surprise week end trip for my wife significant birthday. We were lucky with the weather however the organisation and delivery by the very professional staff along with overall wow factor of the experience of the views made is memorable in many ways. If your making plans to visit the capital add this to your itinerary it adds a lot.

November in London - you can expect rain and clouds. I arrived shortly after the opening time and was told the percentage of view available due to the weather. The men at the ticket desk looked on line to check the weather for me and said that I might want to return around 2 when it should be a bit clearer. I returned to the area around 1:00 - it was raining. I had lunch in the Chinese restaurant 1/2 way up the shard, I can't recall the name right now. As I was finishing, the rain stopped and a bit of sun appeared! I went back down to The View entrance and went straight up - thank goodness for the off-season and no crowds. Bright and sunny with the clouds clearing. Beautiful London in 360 degrees. Well worth the trip! I would have gone regardless of the weather since it was the only day I could work it into my itinerary. Go!!!

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.
