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.

The View from The Shard Reviews
First things first the view is exceptional from the top, which cannot be argued, seeing the illuminated city at night is a special experience. I had purchased tickets in advance but they only get you ... more »
What a treat to be able to see London.......all of it from way up high. We were able to find our Airbnb and take a picture of it. I loved my picture of the railroad, all the crazy modern buildings rig... more »
This is an amazing experience, there are a couple of bars at the top level so you can relax and spend some time when you get to the top. There are two indoor levels and an additional top level that "outside." You can see all of London. I would recommend this attraction any time of the day. If you do visit during the day they will let you purchase an additional ticket for later that evening for £12. There is a VR experience for the kids that does require an extra ticket. They seemed to enjoy it. We used our London pass to enter this attraction.
Amazing Skyline and views of the London Eye, London Tower and other attractions too. The lifts take you to the top in no time. There is a two for one offer you can use to visit them if you have a GWR train tickets or Network Railcards. People typically spend 2 hours there, although there is no restriction. Worth a visit!
