    London's tallest building and some spectacular views over the city! there are also 3 restaurants in the shard too, slightly lower level but still great views
  • Casey L.
    If the view is cloudy or rain shuts off the top floor, mention it to staff. They will give you a coupon to go back again - free of charge.

    Quite expensive tickets, but the best view at London from highest building in Europe. Catch sunny weather and promotional discounts!

    Expensive for what it is, but booking cheaper tickets in advance through a discount site is risky as it might be cloudy on the day you go and you spent your money at no view at all...

    Great views, go just before sunset. Climb the stairs to floor 72 to be outside at the top of the tallest building in the European Union.

    Didn't feel quite as high as I imagined, but enjoyed the views nevertheless. Can get crowded, but to ease the pain, get a glass of champagne with your ticket! ;)

    There's a considerable price difference between booking in advance either online or at the ticket office and purchasing tickets on the day. Its worth planning ahead, even if it's 24 hours.

    A bit expensive but worth every penny. The top floor is like a roof bar so expect people sat on the windows = not easy to stay close tothem

    Amazing views...after battling the hustle and bustle of daily life in the city it's lovely to rediscover the beauty of the city from a different perspective.

    This is definitely one of the best lookout towers in Europe, if not the world. And London is a great city to look down to.

    Buy the tickets 1 day in advance. You save about 5£. Can do that online aswell. When leaving, avoid absolutely paying £20 for a photo taken of you at the entry. Bad quality and overpriced.

    It's best to get up here just before the sunset, so you can enjoy both day and night view. In addition you can spend as much time as you want and choose between flour 69 and 72. The view is awesome

    Best view in London. Would recommend going at night as the best time to appreciate it. May seem pricey but worth every penny when you're up there.

    Amazing view at an expensive cost. It's worth going there once to see the whole of London, as it is quite an amazing sight. Don't forget to reserve your ticket in advance! And try going at sunset

    Drink champagne whilst taking in the breathtaking views across London. There is a small gift shop at the top and a larger gift shop with a wider selection at the entrance before the lifts

    Lucky we picked the right day to go up Shard View. Best views & beautiful sunset. Go around 430pm & stay through sunset & evening to catch the changing light of the cityscape.

    Expensive, but the view is amazing. Do try the toilets with the glass exterior wall between the two lifts to the top.
