Why See View From The Shard?
RISE TO THE TOP OF LONDON
No matter where you are in London, there is one sight that you will always see, towering above the rest of the skyline majestically. We are of course talking about the Shard building at London Bridge, which is currently Europe's tallest freestanding structure. This tour will give you special access to experience the giddy heights, learn valuable information about the building, the local landscape, and to see London in the round, from 69 floors up in a special viewing gallery. There's even a gift shop right at the top, where you can buy yourself a cuddly Romeo fox toy. Thankfully the rascal has been rescued now and released into the local area, where no doubt he will be looking up at you!
YDon't worry if the weather is cloudy; being London, they cater for all eventualities. You can even have your picture taken again greenscreen for a perfect view of the city - nobody will ever know but you.
The specially designed "Tellscopes" provide an interactive viewing and listening experience in 10 languages, so that you can home in on your favourite landmarks, and even see what the view looks like at night as well as in real time.

And before you stop reading
The weather in London can be sometimes unpredictable; even more so at 70 stories up. In the unlikely event that you can't see at least three of the following landmarks - London Eye, St Paulís Cathedral, The Gherkin, Tower Bridge and One Canada Square - on the day of your visit, the Shard will issue each member of your party with a ticket to return for free within three months. To claim your free return visit, speak to a staff member at the ticket desk on level one.

it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.
