The View from The Shard

That ever-young super group The Who sang that they could see for miles and miles. Now you can too. The View from The Shard, London’s newest and most eagerly anticipated attraction offers you all round panoramic views for up to 40 miles across one of the greatest cities on earth.

At a staggering 87 storeys, reaching up 306 metres (1004 feet) into the sky, The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe. Also known as The Shard of Glass, Shard London Bridge and formerly London Bridge Tower, this freestanding work of art was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano on the site that used to be occupied by the 24 storey office block Southwark Towers.

The Shard, essentially an elongated pyramid of glass, contains offices, a soon to be opened luxury hotel and a choice of three restaurants. Yet its crowning glory, quite literally, is the viewing platform which they have named simply The View. What a view it is too: sitting at the top of The Shard on floors 68, 69 and 72 it is the highest viewing platform in the UK, and almost twice as high as any other viewing platform in London.
