Whizz up to the 72nd floor of Western Europe’s tallest building for a knee-trembling but incredible perspective of London with The View from the Shard – now open to the public
The Shard appears like a shimmering stalagmite in the heart of London Bridge Quarter but as you rocket from the ground floor to the viewing platform in a kaleidoscopic elevator, you’ll soon realise that this is a skyscraper like no other. Standing at a staggering 310 metres, it is the tallest building in Western Europe and delivers breathtaking panoramic views of the capital that are out of this world.
London’s newest and most eagerly awaited attraction is open from 9am – 10pm daily, meaning you can wake up with the city in the morning or watch the streets descend into darkness at dusk. The entire experience is enjoyed at your leisure – queue and crowd free – with no time restriction on your stay so you’ll have plenty of time to spot many more iconic landmarks, such as The London Eye, The Houses of Parliament and Tower Bridge too!
If the electric cityscape was not enough, the history and the future of London is brought to life with fantastic multimedia presentations and digital ‘tel:scopes’ to give you a richer understanding of one of the greatest cities on Earth, far beyond what the eye can see.
Tickets to London’s newest landmark cost £24.95 but the sights you will encounter during your visit are priceless.
