The best views of London are from the viewing platforms of The Shard, with an unrivalled 360 degree view of the city. Our tickets are £5 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.

As beautiful as it is to look at from the outside, The View from The Shard is something else entirely: a breathtaking 360-degree view of London from more than 300 meters above the city. You’ll be able to take in the great sites of London: the London Eye, The Tower of London, St. Paul’s, the Thames and more.

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 of William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Simon Cowell, and enjoy a feeling of ‘being above it all’.

Virtual Reality Experience

For a limited time only, experience London like you never have before... flying 250 meters above it! Thanks to the latest in virtual reality technology, you'll hurtle through London's iconic skyline, feeling every vertiginous twist and turn. If you can catch your breath, you can take in the stunningly panoramic views of the city below. But with (simulated) speeds of over 100mph, you'll be too busy trying not to scream. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

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.
