Full description
Watch the streets of London fall away as you climb to Western Europe’s tallest viewing platform on the 72nd floor of The Shard. With a flexible ticket, spend as much time as you like enjoying panoramic views of the city, with visibility of up to 40 miles. Test your limits and step outside onto the open viewing platform on the 72nd floor, or admire the views from inside. Learn about London’s history through multimedia displays and exhibits, or simply sit back and enjoy the view from the champagne bar.  At a height of 1,016 feet, or 310 meters, The Shard redefines London’s skyline and will soon be a dynamic symbol of the city, recognizable throughout the world. The unique building features a sculpted design of glass facets that incline inward without meeting at the top to allow the building to breathe naturally. Sneak a glance upward at the points of glass that form the top of the building before finishing up your journey in the boutique, where you can purchase a souvenir photograph. Please note that opening times can vary due to special events.

It was magical to see London at nighttime from the Shard. We couldn't find the meeting point .. instructions could be better eg " meet under the big escalator" as Joiner street doesn't exist. Apart from the stress of not being able to find the meeting point, we really enjoyed going up the Shard.

Was a great experience. Beware if you buy a drink!!! My friend and I had a £20 glass of chanpagne which we enjoyed as did another lady who we got talking to. She realised she had been charged £22. She complained and was given an apology and a free glass of champagne. We discovered when Checking our card receipt back at the hotel (they only accepted cards) we also had been charged £22 each. How many more people have been ripped off in this way?

A pleasant experience although the cocktail service was slow due to person not quite knowing how to make them without checking their phone for the recipe and the bar staff were unaware of the next person to serve although there was only three of us at bar waiting at the time and I was overlooked.
