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).

We arrived in London from California in the afternoon and I had booked this for that evening. My husband is an semi-pro photographer and so I thought he would enjoy the view. However, he arrived after 14 hours of flying with a bad migraine and we almost blew it off. We managed to get out and I am SO glad we did. We got there about right about sunset and it is just such a spectacular view and also a nicely social venue. This is just hard to describe its mesmerizing. There are bars up there so you can have a glass of champagne while you watch. They also have a virtual reality ride that I did not try but looks like it is just a blast. This is really something to do while you are in London and if you can swing sunset and then be able to hang around until it gets dark out, you will not be disappointed and your photos will be phenomenal at least his are, which made him feel better too!.
