Description

The best views of London are from the viewing platforms of the Shard, with an unrivalled 360-degree view of the city. Our View from the Shard tickets are £6 cheaper than you'd pay at the door.

The 95-story Shard is an architectural marvel and the tallest building in the European Union, which makes it the 87th tallest building in the world. Designed by world-renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano, the Shard's distinctive shape has redefined the London skyline.

A high-speed elevator takes you to the best view of the city, 68 stories above the hustle and bustle of one of Europe's busiest cities. Look out upon the city that houses Shakespeare's Globe and plays host to Dickens' Oliver Twist, and enjoy a feeling of 'being above it all'.

With 360-degree panoramas of London from more than 300 metres above the city, see London Eye, the Tower of London, St. Paul's, the Thames and more.

Insider tip

Watch out for Alain Robert! The 'French Spider-Man' was spotted scoping out the tower and received a lifetime ban from the building. Given his record of daring climbs, that's unlikely to put him off.
