Stand with your head in the clouds and witness breath-taking, panoramic views over the whole of London from the top of the tallest tower in Western Europe with this View from The Shard and Lunch for Two at Strada experience.
Piercing the skies above London, The Shard has quickly become a towering and iconic symbol amongst the city landscape. Standing a colossal height of 1,016 feet (310 meters) tall, The Shard, with its dramatic glass splinter-like form, has redefined the Capital’s skyline with its unique design.
The View from The Shard will give you the opportunity to see London like never before. Take in unobstructed views of London’s most famous sights including Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the Gherkin, the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
With The Shard Weather Guarantee, if you cannot see at least 3 of the following 5 landmarks during your time of visit, The Shard will give you a return ticket for £5, allowing you to return at a time of your choice within three months:
20 Fenchurch Street
One Canada Square
St Paul's Cathedral
Staff at the ticket desk will let you know on the day if the Weather Guarantee has been authorised and will arrange the return ticket. The £5 payment will be taken by cash or card at the ticket desk and you must claim your return ticket on the day of your visit before you leave the attraction.
The visits starts at ground level, as you step into the super-smooth kaleidoscopic lift and travel at high-speed up to the triple-height viewing platform on level 69. From here you can explore the sweeping views, set out on three spacious levels, with floor-to-ceiling windows on every side of the building to allow visitors the chance to gaze out at landmarks up to 40 miles away.
Walk all the way around floors 68 and 69, before heading up to the open-air Skydeck on level 72 - a viewing platform offering 360-degree views across the capital and beyond from a vantage point 802 feet (244 metres) above street level.
State-of-the-art interactive touchscreen telescopes enable you to explore the views in greater detail, with information about 200 landmarks and alternative day, night, sunrise and sunset filters. The View From the Shard’s team of knowledgeable Guest Ambassadors are on hand to answer any questions you have and will help bring the view to life.
After your journey to the skies (or before, depending on your booking), come back down to earth and enjoy a delicious two-course lunch from a set table d'hote menu in Strada at More London Place, a contemporary Italian restaurant just a short walk from The Shard. With a lively atmosphere, this is a great place to dine and a total contrast to your lofty experience with your head in the clouds.

Charlotte Customer Service, July 2019
I have always wanted to go to The Shard and I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed. It was very easy to find, as The Shard is quite hard to miss! When we got there, there was a small queue but this moved quickly which was great. All staff were super attentive and helpful and always someone there to direct you where to go. I was a little apprehensive about the lift up, however this was smooth and there are picture on the ceiling of London Skyline to give you a glimpse of what is to come. The view is spectacular and I love how there is different floors you can go to, to get different views. We could have spent all day up there but we were getting peckish so decided to head to Strada for our lunch. When we arrived we were given the option of where to sit, and it being a nice warm day and the beautiful view we chose to sit outside. The food was really good, I had the spaghetti bolognese and my sister picked pizza. The service was extremely quick and all the staff were really welcoming and lovely to us. For dessert we both had ice-cream as we were extremely full after the generous portion size of the main. The chocolate and honeycomb ice-cream was amazing! I cannot wait to go back and think it would be nice to do the Shard in the evening to see London lit up!
Make sure you have lots of battery on your phone as you will be snapping away constantly!
