Product Highlights

The View from the Shard

Visit the View from the Shard with Discount London. Explore the Capital's skyline like never before from the top of the City's newest attraction. 

Conveniently located just a stone’s throw from London Bridge Station deep in the heart of the city, The Shard towers a thousand feet above the banks of the River Thames. Take in world famous scenes of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London then follow the river through Greenwich and past Canary Wharf as you enjoy unrivalled 360 degree views stretching for up to forty miles in every direction. 

Incredible panoramas including many of London's most iconic buildings such as St Paul's Cathedral and the London Eye can be seen clearly by both night and day from the state of the art viewing platform, specially designed to provide you with the most impressive sightseeing experience available in the Capital.  

The Shard is often referred to as Europe's first 'vertical city' and boasts of a range of bars, restaurants and shops as well as a five star hotel all contained inside its stunning glass facade that has quickly become one of the most recognisable sights in the city and can be considered a 'must see' on any trip to London.

Why not enjoy a glass of Lanson Champagne whilst taking in the view?  There is now a Champagne bar at the viewing platform and you will have the option to add on a glass when you book.

Customer Reviews

  • "Day out"

    "Very impressive building. Pity the weather was wet and cloudy but still managed to see quite a few of the landmarks. Expensive but worth a visit. "

  • "The Shard"

  • "Awesome View"

    "We went up the Shard on Sunday 2nd November and the system with the tickets and the time slots was very efficient. The guides in the lifts were very pleasant and informative. Although it had been raining and visibility wasn't as good as it would be on a dry clear day, it was a superb experience. Highlight was seeing a bird's eye view of the Tower of London with the poppies in the Moat. Would definitely recommend anyone to go up The Shard. "

  • "A GREAT day out"

    "Half term offer of kids go free was an added bonus. I had to change my booking and staff were very helpful and informative. Once at The Shard, the breathtaking experience, let alone the view, was one to treasure. Lift operators were jolly and full of information, the guy who runs the window cleaning of the building was also filling us with delightful nuggets of terror inducing daily exploits that he and his team carry out in a professional capacity! Once up on floor 72, with the sun blazing and the wind whipping us into a frenzy of excitement, we surveyed London in all its splendour. From Tower Bridge to the poppies and further up the Thames to the famous barrier that I visited when school age, we had a fantastic experience and can't wait to return, maybe this time at dusk! Well worth it."

    "What a view. Wow. Absolutely amazing. Well impressed with the information provided from the viewing points. The Shard official guide book is very interesting and well worth the £10. An experience not to be missed. "

  • "The View from the Shard"

    "I booked The View from the Shard as a birthday gift for my friend. We had a great day out and thoroughly enjoyed the Views from the Shard whilst we sipped a glass of champagne. Our viewing was in the afternoon and the day was hot and sunny so we could see the views very clearly. We will book again for an evening view, so we can see the stunning views all lit up. The booking was quick and simple booking through Discount London. The staff at the Shard were very professional and polite. A truly amazing visit and day out."

  • "Brilliant "

    "Fantastic view, a little expensive. Such a shame that was very cloudy - apart of that everything was very nice. I loved the elevator, ceiling constantly changes images- very cool!! "

  • "View from the Shard"

    "it was really extremely interesting as the visibility was excellent. Amazing to look down on London and view it as you would a model village or train set lay out. I perhaps would like to revisit sometime at night. The merchandise on sale is extremely expensive for what it is and the Photographs even more so. I am sure a cheaper package would ensure greater sales in the future. On the whole, a really good experience. All the staff were pleasant and helpful."

  • "Lovely Experience"

  • "Missed the Lightning Storm"

    "Amazing visit to The Shard but apparently we just missed the most fantastic lightning show. The rain showers did hamper the visit a bit but the sun shone through for a while which made all the difference. We had very good views on a very grey day so would imagine that the views on a brilliant, sunny and clear day would be stunning."

  • "Amazing!"

    "The view from the Shard was an amazing experience, we were so impressed that we were able to stay and enjoy the 360 degree views from the 72nd floor for as long as we liked. Going up on the lift was also an awesome experience. We still can't work out how we travelled (must have been catapulted lol) Highly recommends!"

  • "the shard"

    "I loved every minute of my birthday treat to the shard. Although we arrived earlier than our designated time slot we were allowed to go strait through. On the way up we sang "Happy Birthday" as there were 2 other people with birthdays that day in our lift. Met them again on floor 72 with our glasses of champagne in hand. It was a beautiful day and we could see for miles. Bought our photo at the end as a lasting reminder. We then had a pub lunch and spent the rest of the day on the south bank. Have visited many cities in the world but London is still my favourite,there's always something going on."

  • "great way to spend a spare hour"

    "With the offer of 'two kids go free per adult', during the May school holidays, The View from The Shard became reasonably priced! We all enjoyed our visit, even our 4yr old daughter, who usually doesn't like lifts (but declared the lifts at The Shard to be the best part of the trip)! It was perfect for us, as we didn't want a long, busy day out somewhere, but wanted to spend the day together. We drove into London on a bank holiday, parked nearby for £10, checked out all the landmarks from the top, got some great photos and was back near home by early lunchtime!"

  • "The View from the Shard"

    "Visiting and going up the Shard was a great experience and well recommended. We got there early for the first lift at 10a.m,there where no queues and only a few people on the viewing platforms which meant we could easily take in all the views of London. The weather was sunny and a little hazy but didn't affect our enjoyment. "

    "I have to say before I visited the Shard, I did wonder what all the fuss was about. But once I had stepped out of the lift to the viewing area and all I could say was WOW! The weather was amazing and the view we could see up to 35 miles away. Our slot was at 11am for 1 hour but we were in no way hurried away. All I can say it was an amazing experience."
