A very cool spot to get some incredible photographs of London from a very high viewpoint. Sunset from The Shard are rather spectacular. I'd highly recommend bringing a wide angle lens but also a telephoto lens as well to really make the most of this location. The reflection from the glass can be bad in some spots, so i would recommend bringing along a Lens Skirt to eliminate it. If you happen to go up during spring or autumn i would recommend bringing a warm jacket as it can get fairly cold at that height.
A great way to say "bye London", as I leave soon. The lifts are incredibly quick and the staff were polite and helpful. Food and drink is quite pricey along with professional photos - might as well take your own. Loved watching the sunset.
Do not miss the toilets (no joke). Staff are lovely, view is, of course, awe inspiring. I went at night and loved watching the little ant people skate around makeshift icerinks, picking out all my different haunts from my different eras living in London and checking out the depictions of London from Roman settlement through the centuries in the 'binoculars'
As a family we really enjoyed this experience. The staff in their beefeater like costumes make it feel special. You are taken to the 69th floor where you are left to explore the views right up to level 72. This level is open to the outside. There are two bars and you can spend as long as you like up there. Whilst up there it is worth checking out the loos - a loo with a view.
Now while the views are indeed true my spectacular, for the steep price, limited activities/entertainment when you do eventually make it to the top, and also plastic cups etc at the cafe/bar, this is definitely a 'once' in a lifetime excursion. There's only so much you can look out over a smoggy London. Go once and avoid a repeat trip if you can.
