The Shard ~ London's Newest Attraction

The Shard is the iconic, landmark building on the London skyline. At a height of 1,016ft (310m), the tallest building in Western Europe, The Shard redefines London’s skyline and will be a dynamic symbol of London, that has become recognisable throughout the world.

The Viewing Gallery opened in 2013 and it is expected to receive over one million visitors every single year! The Viewing Gallery is situated at the top of The Shard, on floors 68, 69 and 72, and almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in London!

Prepare to embark on a multi-sensory journey to 244m (800ft) above one of the greatest cities on earth. On arrival at Level 00, you will be drawn into the tapestry of London with glimpses of the city laid out before you. Travelling skyward in two high-speed ‘kaleidoscopic’ lifts, you’ll swiftly reach Level 68. A cloudscape above the world.

Then journey to Level 69 where the view is revealed and London opens out before you. Here, in the sky above London, you’ll experience an astonishing 360 degree, 64km (40mile) view over the city and beyond where the past, present and future of London will be unfurled beneath you, brought to life in multimedia displays.

For the best view in town, ascend to Level 72, at 244m, the highest public level of The Shard. You’ll be exposed to the elements with sounds of the city around you. Looking up, you’ll see the shards of glass that form the top of this skyscraper as they disappear upwards into the sky.

The Shard Viewing Gallery is 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. The entire experience is enjoyed at your leisure, queue and crowd free with no time restriction on your stay.
