Highlights / General details
We are a premium visitor attraction at the top of the European Union's (EU) tallest building, and London’s newest landmark, The Shard. Designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano, the Shard redefines London’s skyline and has become a dynamic symbol of London. At a height of up to 800ft or 244m, we offer spectacular views over London for up to 40 miles. We are almost twice as high as any other vantage point in the city, and the only place where visitors can see the entire city at once.
Access to three different viewing platforms, including 360° views on Level 69 and the open-air floor on Level 72.
Entrance options: Morning: Open-11:59am, Afternoon: Noon-5:59pm, Evening: 6:00pm-Close.
