The View from The Shard

The View from The Shard

The View from The Shard is London’s highest view at the top of The Shard. There are indoor and outdoor viewing platforms.


London’s highest and best view is situated at the top of The Shard, on floors 68, 69 and 72. At almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in the capital, it offers visitors unparalleled 360-degree views for up to 40 miles.

Book your tickets now for your chance to see London in high definition at The View from The Shard. All tickets are dated and timed for your arrival, but once at the viewing platforms the experience is enjoyed at your leisure, with no time restriction on your stay. You will be able to choose the time of your visit and can enter The View up to 30 minutes from the time printed on your ticket – and the weather guarantee means that in the event of bad weather you’ll be able to come back for free (terms and conditions apply).

Between 9th June – 18th September 2016, the open-air skydeck on Level 72 will be transformed into an immersive garden featuring thousands of brilliant blooms in celebration of The Year of The English Garden.

Unfortunately pushchairs cannot be taken into The View, however a facility to store these free of charge at the Visitor’s own risk is provided near the ticket desk in the ticket hall. Pushchairs must be folded if stored in this area and no bags or coats can be left on the pushchair.

All children must be accompanied by an adult aged sixteen or over. Infants aged up to three are not charged for entry and will not need a ticket. Children aged four to fifteen will need a valid ticket.
