Visit: The View from The Shard, Joiner Street, London SE1 9QU England

See further than the eye can see from the tallest building in Western Europe. This ticket is your chance to get access to The View from The Shard. With a height of 1,016 feet (310 meters), The Shard redefines the capital's skyline with its unique design consisting of glass facets inclining toward the top, which is open to the sky.

Renowned architect Renzo Piano designed the dynamic building in 2000 and construction started in February 2009. The Shard is situated in the historic London Bridge Quarter among trendy bars and top-end restaurants and near the Borough Market.

Simply bring your voucher to the entrance and you'll be allocated the next available time slot. Then, via a high-speed elevator, you will be transported to 'The View,' located at the top of The Shard on floors 68, 69 and 72. Take in unobstructed views of London's best sites including Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the Gherkin, the London Eye and much more. Interactive telescopes in 11 languages enable you to get background information on what you are seeing, as well as get an understanding of London's past, present and future like you’ve never experienced them before. Level 72, where the top of the building opens to the sky, offers you unbeatable 360-degree views.

Upgrade to include a glass of Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut champagne and make your experience even more unforgettable.

Arrived and went straight through no waiting. Unfortunately tickets did not work but staff were very helpful and let us through. Was not a busy day so not much waiting time at lifts.
Views were amazing when at the top. Nobody bothers you. You can stay up there as long as you like.

This is a must on a good day. We went on a sunny day and could see the whole of London. We enjoyed a glass of champagne too! Well worth it.

Felt very surreal seeing London look so small when it is so big. Fabulous experience at a reasonable cost. Thank you.

No queuing was great straight in. Very good went to the 72nd floor open to the skies. Fab view depending on the weather. Can stay for a short time or enjoy a drink taking in the views of London

We enjoyed our "on top of the world" experience. The staff were helpful and friendly. It could have been better on a clear sunny day, but even on a grey day like this the views were amazing!

I booked the tickets online with the trip plus champagne when I presented these at the bar the member of staff didn’t seem to recognise them I asked if there was a problem she said nothing just stared at them eventually she shrugged and gave us our drinks apart from that the visit was excellent
