Rated 5 out of 5 by from Special Bday Celebration! I brought the View from the Shard Champagne Experience for my Boyfriend as a birthday gift, and we had an amazing time and loved seeing all the iconic sites! We particularly liked the flexibility that purchasing our tickets from this website gave us, as our initial date and time changed many times during our visit to the area, so by having an opened ended future date and time slot, this worked out perfectly for ourselves. We would definitely recommend this attraction to visit and also purchasing the tickets through this website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Views I booked tickets for myself and 2 friends. One was visiting from Ireland and had never been to London before so we were all really excited to do some sightseeing! The view from the top is incredible, it literally takes your breath away! You can walk around and pretty much see the whole of London. We went at around 6.30pm on a Saturday, and although there was a fair amount of people up there it didn't feel too crowded. Would definitely recommend going in the evening to see the sunset. We spent over an hour taking photos and checking out the view.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely birthday treat I was lucky enough to have Afternoon Tea at the Shard aswell as tickets to the top. It's a shame the tea doesn't come with the chance to go higher as it is quite pricey, so I'm glad I got to do both. We wanted to see the view in the day at at night, so chose 7pm entrance. Staff let us go up early as they advised it would be really busy if we waited until 7pm to go up. We didn't take advantage of the drinks and snacks whilst up there so can't comment on that. There are telescopes you can look through for free with a guide to identify buildings. People tend to take their photos then move on so not an issue getting the shot you want. I'm glad I've been, but don't think I'd pay £20+ to go again.
