Description

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 £6 cheaper than you'd pay at the door. Opt for a little extra luxury and get a glass of Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut Champagne at the bar.

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

Want to make it even more special? Why not opt for the Champagne Experience and enjoy a glass of bubbles from Europe's tallest Moët & Chandon bar along with the views?

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.

Additional info

Arm yourself with a Weather Guarantee to make your trip to the clouds foolproof. If you can't see at least three of the following landmarks – the London Eye, St. Paul's Cathedral, The Gherkin, Tower Bridge, and One Canada Square – on the day of your visit, the good folk at The Shard will let you return within three months for just £5 more. Staff at the ticket desk will advise you on the day if a Weather Guarantee is needed.

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.

Excellent views obviously. Too many schoolchildren running around, sitting and lolling where you want to take photos. Drinks were reasonably priced, staff helpful. But feel it is overpriced

Easy to follow and lots of staff to direct you

The Location of The Shard is just outside of the London bridge station. The view from the Shard is fantastic, much better than the London Eye. Chill with any drinks while enjoying the view.
