    Bit of a dull day but still great views. Lift very quick to top. Airport security to get in. Drinks a bit pricey but to be expected in that location. Staff are lovely - chatty, happy to take photos if you and friends Overall a great experience

    The tallest building in London and a must visit place if you are around town. A london pass can get you access to this location and pre booking is required. The view deck floor has a bar and drinks/food for you to enjoy and if you reach the place around sun down the view becomes spectacular on a whole different level. One of the best places I have ever been to.

    Experiencing The Shard with my partner elevated the visit to a whole new level. The breathtaking views became even more special when shared with someone I care about. The intimate setting allowed us to appreciate London's beauty together, creating memories that will undoubtedly last a lifetime. The seamless organization and friendly staff made the visit enjoyable, and the modern ambiance added a touch of romance to the entire experience. The Shard is not just a remarkable structure; it's a perfect destination for couples seeking a unique and enchanting escape above the bustling city.

    The View from The Shard is one of a kind and breathtaking. A full 360 view of London, the tallest building with a viewing platform. The shard also has three restaurants in it that you can RSVP. I highly recommend it. Even if you’re not down to eat at any of the restaurants at the very top You can RSVP a small table and get cocktails, snacks, desserts, pastries, and more. In the evening they will also have performance artist like a singer or pianist. My boyfriend and I stayed up there for a few hours. Just enjoying the lovely view, this is a must see attractions in London.

    Beautiful views, great architecture etc, but the overall experience has been below our expectations on numerous visits. It seems they made the venue as uncomfortable as possible, so they are able to have a quick turnaround of people. The bar at the very top has an open roof (so it gets chilly), yet they only sell cold drinks (also in the middle of the winter) and on the top of that- their drink selection is VERY limited. If they put some thought and creativity into it, they’d be serving warm drinks- mulled wines, mulled cider, teas, coffees and all sorts of alcoholic as well as non alcoholic drinks, but instead- you can only buy cold drinks, yet you have nowhere to sit and actually enjoy your drink and the view… The lower bar does serve warm drinks as well as cocktails, etc., but the queues are so long, the place is overcrowded, all seats are always taken (unless you come on a quiet day/morning) and there are always some visitors playing piano (not very well), so the whole atmosphere is rather unpleasant. It feels like some cheap (even though the prices are high) tourist trap. We got our coffees from the lower bar, walked up the flights of stairs and drunk our coffees in the bar at the top, but again- with nowhere to sit it just doesn’t feel like it’s a very welcoming place, which is such a shame and a missed opportunity in my opinion. It’d have been so beautiful if they had some decent mixed drinks/cocktails and perhaps warm cocktails, mead, hot cider upstairs… also some half decent music… but it seems it’s much more important for them to get a high volume of people in and out, fast ;)
