    You can pay the full price on the ground floor, or ask to go up for the cocktail bar and buy a drink there to enjoy the wonderful and breathtaking view of the city! Def. worth paying the price!

    Impressive architecture. However £30 is quite expensive to enjoy the view.

    Pay to see The View from the Shard. It's worth it, especially on a lovely day.

    Stephen Robinson · April 10
  • Adam F.

    The architecture and views are phenomenal. The toilets are simply awesome, if somewhat lacking in privacy! Whilst an awesome building and experience, the price is extortionate.

    The view is worth the money.

  • Stefania M.

    Amazing view. Went there before the sunset so we saw everything in both day and night light.

    Stefania Mani · February 11
  • Oliver W.

    Highly recommend. Pre-book for sunset to see London by day and by night. Champagne package is also worth it!

    Excellent views. Service at the bar can be extremely slow, but the food and service ones seated makes up for this.

    Avoid the Oblix and Acqua on weekends. Go there for a drink during the week.

    Make sure you check the weather before heading up to the viewing deck.

    Avoid the line for 'the bird's and go straight to the line for bar and restaurants for the whole experience.

    Brad T · October 26, 2014
  • Ana L.

    No need to pay to go to the top. Go for a drink or dinner in one of its restaurants!

    Networking event... Great view, terrible canopies, plenty of champers... 2 out of 3 ain't bad

  • Rimon N.

    Big, tall and imposing. I am not sure if that is good or bad.

    This new building is one of the new attractions of london that you must visit. The view from the 72 flour over the city is amazing!

    What a beautiful building

    Theresa T 💞 · August 6, 2014
  • Kim S.

    Overrated and overpriced

    Kim Sta · July 27, 2014
  • Andrea M.

    A breathtaking view already from the bar on the 32nd floor, the higher one must be amazing!

    take some cash and treat yourself to a glass of champagne (£10) when in the viewing gallery

    Go up the escalator outside London Bridge tube for an epic reminder of how tiny we are!

    Christian Duncan · March 11, 2014
  • Katie F.

    I recommend going in the evening... You can see absolutely everything! Plus, London at night is always gorgeous! (And less tourists)

    Katie Frampton · February 25, 2014

    Best london view ever! Try finsbury punch

    Ozge Nisanci · January 19, 2014
  • Martina S.

    Amazing @ night

    Martina Stancati · January 17, 2014
  • Martin R.

    If you feel the 25 pounds for the view are a bit much, go to the bar "Oblix" on 32 floor and say at the entrance that you're only there for drinks/coffee. It's on 32nd floor!!

    Martin R. · January 3, 2014
  • Joseph D.

    Get a table by the windows. Service is slow and the menu is fairly limited. Food is pretty good though!

    Joseph Dent · November 23, 2013

    Thoroughly enjoyed the view however it is virtually impossible to get a panoramic shot because of the bearings and why isn't there a glasa elevator? !It's a glass building I thought that was the point
