Redefining London’s skyline The Shard is a new landmark building reaching 1,016ft (310m) into the sky.

Offering you an unparalleled encounter with exhilarating 360 degree views stretching 40 miles out across London’s skyline, The View, situated on floors 68, 69 and 72 of The Shard is a premium visitor experience.

At a height of 800ft (244m), The View is almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in London.

Admission to The View from The Shard is only valid on the date and time shown on the ticket.

Guests will arrive at level 68 before ascending to The View on level 69, a triple-height, light-filled main level where the view is revealed and London past, present and future is laid before you like you’ve never seen it before.

On level 72 you’ll have the opportunity to experience the elements with part of the building exposed through the fractures where the shards of glass come together, and the opportunity to gaze at the giant glass shards disappearing into the sky.
