Maybe somewhat controversial to the locals, but we found it incredible-- we were lucky to have a clear, sunny day We didn't experience any lines on our way up taking 2 elevators to first indoor viewing platform, then stairs up to second exterior viewing platform.

Dutch Japanese Russian Swedish Norwegian Korean Danish When you arrive at the Shard, you will need to make your way to the booking hall on Level 1.
This is where ticketing will take place and you will be required to pass through a security checkpoint. Once you have entered and passed through security, you will then be asked to take a photograph. These photos are then super imposed on a London skyline background and are available to purchase as you leave. After photos, visitors are then directed down a long hallway — featuring a map of London underfoot — to the first lift. This lift takes visitors to the 33rd floor where they disembark and are directed to a second lift that takes them up to the 69th floor, and the first viewing deck, called The View.
The View from the Shard is a fairly new observation deck which provides wonderful views of London. The View provides a degree view of London and there is no other structure in London even close to the height of the Shard, which means the views are clear, with no obstructions. In fact, the top observation deck is approximately meters ft high, nearly 90 meters ft higher than the Sky Garden — previously the highest public accessible viewing gallery in London. If you want to explore further, make your way up to the open-air Skydeck on Level This is a spectacular space that is open to the elements.
Here you are surrounded by the top-most glass panes of the Shard, and can look directly up into the sky. The Skydeck is also covered in fake grass, giving it a garden feel. If you visit during a less-buy time, you will find many guests lounging on the grass, enjoying the view, as well as a few drinks. On both levels, visitors can purchase food and drink at the bar. Visitors looking for more can also take a private guided tour, enjoy a silent disco or take advantage of a virtual reality experience.
Professional photos are also available for those who want to commemorate their trip. Once you decide to leave, you simply reverse the process to make your way back down to the ground floor. TIP: If you want to enjoy a drink with your view, consider visiting the Oblix bar on Level 32 instead. You can ask for a seat near the window and enjoy the views from above while sipping on a cocktail. There is no admission price for this bar. This is an excellent idea if you plan on doing more than just enjoying the view. Make sure to check our ticket prices section for information on the cost of these additional options.
Virtual Reality Experience. The View from the Shard offers two VR experiences for visitors on the open air deck. Private Guided Tour. Receive a special minute tour of the Shard and London below for between visitors. This is a great way to discover the city from a different perspective. Champagne Experience.
An excellent alternative is to get a drink of your choice at the Skydeck bar. See the View from the Shard during both day and night at a discounted price. These tickets must be used in one day and you must wait at least 2 hours between each visit. There are several ways to get a good view of London, and many tourists are curious about whether or not a visit to the Shard is worth the price of admission. Highest Observation Deck. The View from the Shard is higher than any other observation deck in London.
The top observation deck is approximately 84 meters ft higher than the Sky Garden which is free by the way. In addition to both the closed deck and the open air deck at the Shard, you can also check out their VR Experience or take a private guided tour. Did you know you can see London from the Shard without paying to visit the observation deck? They have several restaurants and bars which offer a similar view.
