Western Europe's highest viewing platform
At a towering 1,016ft (310m) The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe, with its observation deck “The View” sitting at nearly twice the height of any other viewing platform in London.
Enjoy the views for as long as you like!
There are no time limits to how long you stay, so you can enjoy the sights for as long as you like
Test Your Nerve on the World’s Highest Virtual Reality Slide!*
Give in to the need for speed and zoom down The Slide – the UK’s highest VR experience standing at 800ft above the ground!
Feel your blood rush as you travel at 100mph on this fast and furious 360° journey through London’s skyline.
360° views of London & beyond – whatever the weather
This is one of the most exciting ways to experience London, with stunning 360° views over the city and 40 miles into the surrounding counties.
And you can enjoy the scenery whatever the weather! Stay warm and dry behind the floor-to-ceiling windows of the indoor deck, or step out onto the open-air viewing platform.
See the sights at their clearest in the light of day, or for a more romantic experience, visit The Shard as the sun goes down and the city begins to light up for the night.
*The Slide is not currently included with our tickets. Slide tickets are available to buy on the day at the open-air Skydeck of The Shard for a fee of £10 per experience (subject to availability).
