The Shard from London Bridge
The Shard is one of the most dynamic buildings in London, and it is certainly the most eye-catching. Conceived by Sellar Property, it is also Western Europe’s tallest building. Standing at 310 meters, The Shard has transformed the capital’s skyline and is like a vertical city filled with residential apartments, a five-star hotel, world-class restaurants, offices and the city’s highest viewing gallery.

The observation platforms on floors 68, 69 and 72 are collectively known as The View from The Shard. Almost two times as high as any of the city’s other viewing platforms, The View from The Shard offers 360-degree views of the entire city. On a clear day, visitors can see 40 miles out, observing some of London’s greatest sights high above the city. Multimedia displays add to the experience, bringing to life the capital’s past, present and future. Open from 9 am through 10 pm daily, visitors never have to wait in line or battle enormous crowds for a view because all tickets are dated and timed.
