The View from The Shard is London’s premium visitor attraction, located at the top of Western Europe’s tallest building, The Shard.

Once there, enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the capital from our Level 69 observation deck whilst unwinding with a glass of champagne, or share a moment with a loved one spotting London’s famous landmarks from our open air sky deck on Level 72, where exposed to the elements you can take in the atmosphere and sounds of the city below.
