Go to the top of western Europe's tallest building for one of the best panoramas of London. The View from The Shard occupies floors 68, 69, and 72, some 244 m (800 ft) up the 310 m (1,016 ft) building. You can reach the viewing platform--which is about twice the height of the next-highest viewing platform in the city--via one of two high-speed elevators. From here, you'll have 360-degree views up to 64 km (40 mi) away. Pre-purchase your tickets on the venue's website to avoid waiting in line at the entrance, and to save on the price of admission. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a London trip simple and quick.

Great worth while trip, you’ll never find a view like this from any other bathroom u may use! Tentative staff all keen to help u whilst admiring the amazing views from the multiple levels. I have a fear of heights but still managed to enjoy myself! Worth every penny! If u found my review useful please like it.
My partner booked this as a surprise for my birthday along with drinks at the aqua shard afterwards. The view was a bit foggy to begin with due to the time of year (January). But they were brilliant and informed us that if the view wasn’t clear we could come another day. Luckily it cleared a bit and we enjoyed a beautiful view from the top of the shard. Really lovely day out :) & very romantic. Going near sunset is lovely too because you get to see it in daylight and as the sun sets, just beautiful.
