Champagne with an incredible view

Once back on dry land, you’ll be treated to the amazing View from The Shard experience, at the top of western Europe’s tallest building. Designed by master architect Renzo Piano, The Shard has redefined London’s skyline and has quickly established its place as a dynamic symbol of the capital city.

At a height of up to 800ft or 244m – almost twice the height of any other vantage point in London, you can experience unrivalled 360 degree views over the city, for up to 40 miles on a clear day.

The extraordinary high-speed lift will take you to level 68 in just 60 seconds. There you can enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the capital from our Level 69 observation deck, unwind 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.

You can also explore the capital's past, present, and future courtesy of our high-tech, fully interactive digital telescopes and multimedia guides, enabling visitors to experience the entire city like never before.
