The View from The Shard is the visitor attraction at the top of The Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe and London's newest landmark. At almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in London, it offers visitors spectacular 360...more

I had done the London Eye previously so I was not sure if it was worth going the Shard. But once I had arrived at the top and saw the fantastic views I instantly changed my mind! It's much higher up than the London Eye...More
Bought tickets online for half price, so it cost £16 each which was good value. We visited on a Saturday in January, arriving at the queue 10 minutes before our booked slot and timed it just right! There were two queues, neither of which were...More
I was lucky enough to be treated to dinner at the Shad and the view of London bought tears to my eyes. It was like being on the very pinacle of the city and stunning to see the changing colours of the sky and all...More
We visited at lunch time on a Monday. The venue wasn’t crowded. The airport style X-ray security check was relatively quick and easy. The views from all observation levels were truly superb. You’re welcome to stay as long as you like. For a novel experience...More
Just ok not very satisfying. Nice views but you pay a lot which detracts from the overall experience. At least it was not so crowded when we went. Worth booking online 5 days in advance to save 50% in January.
Whilst view across city was great the whole experience was disappointing to say least. The security staff in particular were very rude and aggressive in their approach to customer service. Not the best welcome for any tourist. This tainted whole visit. Time slots mean nothing...More
Entrance was quick we waited around 5 minutes (including elevator) you do have to change elevators half way up but the ride is very quick! there are two floors you can view from, we visited at night it was fairly busy but not over crowded....More
I don't normally do heights comfortably but this was one of the better experiences. Fortunately the weather was bright and the views from floor 69 were stunning. Floor 72 - more open to the elements, was even better. We found it easy to navigate the...More
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
It depends on what you like and what you're looking for. I was travelling on my own when I went and got a great feeling of "me against the world" up there. Actually, there were a few couples, families and groups of friends... More
It depends on what you like and what you're looking for. I was travelling on my own when I went and got a great feeling of "me against the world" up there. Actually, there were a few couples, families and groups of friends but they all spent most of their time on their own. The views you get are simply incredible.
