Ages: 4+

Venue type: Indoor

London's highest and arguably best view is on offer right at the top of The Shard. At nearly twice the height of any other viewing platform in the capital, The Shard offers you and yours unparalleled 360 degree panoramic views for up to a whopping 40 miles.

Take a guided tour where you’ll learn about 1000 years of London’s history and have your tour guide bring to life the city and landmarks below! You’ll also be given access to the Skydeck on level 72 where you’ll experience the sights and sounds of the city below and be able to purchase drinks and snacks.

All tickets are dated and timed for your visit, but once up on the viewing platforms the experience can be very much enjoyed at your leisure, with no time restriction on how long you can stay. You'll be able to select the time of your visit and with a nice degree of flexibility - you can enter The View up to 30 minutes from your time slot. The very civilised weather guarantee means that in the event of bad weather you can come back another time for free! You also have the option of a combo ticket which gives you a guided bus tour of the features you'll be seeing before you get up there!
