It's called The View. There is indeed a very good view. The rest is your typical tourist trap - marked up photos (£18 for a single photo?!?!), expensive drinks, and endless gift shops. I won't begrudge them this (I can understand how expensive it must have been) but it slightly taints the experience once you've already paid £20 each (at the student rate). However - the telescope viewing things were a real revolution in "going to high places for a better view". They let you see the view zoomed in and show what it would look like at sunset, or on a sunny day, which is great if it's cloudy such as it was for me!
Excellent experience! This viewing tower gives you the opportunity to see many of London's sights and landmarks from high above. Photo opportunities at every corner... However the 'Green Screen' photos that are sold by the operators of the viewing platform are quite overpriced in my opinion. There is a small bar where you can purchase hot and cold drinks on the open-air viewing platform. The second viewing platform (open-air) is quite an experience as you are exposed to the elements via gaps in the 'shards' of glass that make up the structure. The first viewing platform is perfect for getting lots of pictures of the beautiful view through the large, clean panels of glass. The lift that takes you up to The View From The Shard takes you upwards and downwards in less than a minute. Your time spent on the viewing platforms is *not* limited so feel free to take your time! The shop located at the base of the shard sells memorabilia such as postcards, toys and souvenirs, as well as informative books about the architecture of The Shard. Not too expensive depending on what you choose to purchase. The guide book costs around £10. I highly recommend this excellent experience - a must-see on any visit to London.
Expensive but worth it! It's costly to go up to the top but I'd recommend it to anyone visiting for the first time. You can see pretty much every single significant building and landmark in central London from here and the guide they give you helps identify them. It can be busy and cold but sunset is the best time to go. You can see the city by day and night! There is champagne available for purchase at the top and it can be a very romantic experience. The staff is so professional they really made the whole evening.
Fantastic viewing platforms and a very well organised set-up. I've been twice so far and got right up to the top within 5 minutes of arriving.
Wow! The only other place you get a view like this in London is on an aircraft! Amazing views, very friendly staff, there's even a bar and a restaurant at the top! Book your ticket in advance to save £5.
