What Can I Expect

Visit The Shard - the greatest panorama of London you'll ever see! These fabulous London Shard experiences will see you going on a journey to the pinnacle of Western Europe's highest building. You'll reach the open-air 72nd floor of this stunning skyscraper by legendary Italian architect Renzo Piano.

The name is very apt, as it really is all about the view when you visit The Shard. We wager that you'll be wandering around in sheer awe, as you drink in the 360 degree vistas of the capital through the huge panes of glass. The triple-height ceilings make you feel like you could just reach out and touch the clouds. And as you look down, everything seems to be in miniature in that tilt-shift style.

You'll be taking two high-speed kaleidoscopic lifts to reach the viewing areas. Changing on the 33rd floor of this iconic Shard building, you follow an interactive map of London and the Thames featuring clues and riddles as you transfer to the second lift. In just 30 seconds you will be on the 68th floor, where your visiting experience of this superb building really begins.

As you work your way up to the 69th floor, the horizon opens up before your very eyes. On a good day you can see over 40 miles - and it's true to say that London's skyline has been redefined by The Shard. The  highlight of the visit has to be the final leg of the journey to the 72nd floor.

This storey is the highest public access level you will be visiting at The Shard and here you are exposed to the elements, with all the sounds of the bustling city swirling around you. Looking upwards, your gaze follows the final morsels of glistening glass as the 'shard-like' pieces disappear into the vanishing point in the sky.

We know this visit is all about what you can see from The Shard, but take a moment to close your eyes and listen to the distant hum of traffic noise, sirens, trundling trains and church bells - it's mesmerising from 244m above the ground!

And don't forget, you can visit during the day and in the evening, so you can choose to ascend The Shard to see London in the daylight, or capture the bright lights of the city after nightfall. You can also add some nice little extras to your Shard visitor's package, including cocktails, Fast Track entry. We think this shining tower is a wonderful tourist attraction and your sky-high Shard visit is bound to leave a lasting impression.

    although a stunning view i do feel that the experience is over priced. no guide reeling off facts about the building simply ushered in then to a lift then to another, then to the top. No problems with the customer service at the shard or at into the blue ,all very obliging.

    The visit to the shard went well. The service from into the blue was customer focused as we had to change the date and the service over the phone was 1st class thank you.

    Yes, but the booking experience was poor due to the supplier not recognising your booking!
