The View From the Shard is now the best place to be get a ‘birds eye view’ of London. It is one of the ‘must visit’ locations in London, sitting alongside the Empire State Building in New York or the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
For details of The Shard itself, and the View From the Shard experience click on The Shard.
From either observation deck on the 69th floor or the open 72nd floor, the View From The Shard is the best place to be to view London. Make sure you have your camera with you, as you will never tire of what you can see and identify.
In daylight, you can look across London for the attractions you may know, and those you may want to visit later.
And as the night arrives, more lights illuminate the historic buildings.
Some London icons are instantly visible, but now you can see them as you never have before.
As light fades…
And then it is night…
The View From The Shard, at 244m (800ft) is the highest vantage point from any building in Western Europe. It easily towers over three times the height of the London Eye.
So leaving you with just three iconic London sites, I give you, London Tower Bridge in daytime:
Canary Wharf in the evening:
and London St Pauls Cathedral lit up at night.
The View from the Shard opens on 1st February 2013. Tickets are £24,95 for adults and £18.95 for children bookable in advance.
