The View from the Shard Tickets from £19.95

The Shard is the tallest building in the EU, measuring an impressive 309 metres spread over 73 floors. The Shard is located in London Bridge right next to the station, and is easily accessible by tube, bus, rail and the Thames Clipper boat service. The building consists of the Shangri-La at the Shard Hotel, office space and The View from the Shard at the top of the tower, which offers breathtaking views of the London skyline. On clear days, you can see as far as 40 km away and augmented reality technology lets you zoom in on distant landmarks in clear weather, should you be visiting on a cloudy day.

The viewing platform takes up the 68th to the 72nd floor, with a partially open viewing deck on the 72nd floor. There is also a bar and a gift shop within the viewing galleries, where you can buy champagne, soft drinks and souvenirs.

Tickets provide you access to a timed entry slot at The View from the Shard. You can enter the viewing platform within the 30 minute slot and stay inside The View from the Shard for as long as you wish. The viewing platform is open between 10 am and 10 pm daily. The attraction recommends you set aside at least an hour for your visit to fully enjoy the experience.
