Opened in February 2013, the View from the Shard offers visitors amazing 360 degree views over, and beyond the city of London, from a height of 244m, on the 68th, 69th and 72nd floors of the Shard.
Standing some 310m high (1016ft), and designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano, the Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe.
A dynamic symbol of London, recognisable throughout the world, the Shard makes a major impact on the London skyline.
The 'View' is almost twice the height of all current London viewing platforms, offering guests a multi-sensory journey to 244m (800ft) above of one of the greatest cities on earth.
From Level 00 of the Shard, you travel skywards in two high-speed ‘kaleidoscopic’ elevators, which quickly deliver you to Level 68 - in 'a cloudscape' above the world.
From here you can travel up to Level 69, where the views open out to you, and London appears before you.
Take a look through an amazing TELL:SCOPE, a futuristic telescope, which not only shows the landscape below in incredible detail, it also shows augmented reality data directly onto the things you are viewing.
From this floor you can experience amazing 360 degree views, going out some 64km (40mile) on a clear day, over London and beyond.
The London of the past, present and future will unfurl beneath you, as multimedia displays bring the stories to life.
And for the ultimate high, head on up, and outside, to Level 72, for the best views in town. At 244m altitude this is the highest public level of The Shard. Step outside where you are exposed to the elements, and take in the sounds of London from the streets below, and the skies above.
Gazing up, you will get a close up view of the topmost shards of glass, which form the top of the building, as they disappear into the sky.
The View will be open from 09.00 am to 22.00 pm daily to enable guests to experience the very different cityscapes of day and night. All tickets are dated and timed, so we advise pre-booking to ensure an unpressured, premium quality experience with no waiting and no queues.
