Our guide to The View from The Shard
The equivalent of the height of 57 double-decker buses, The View from The Shard - London's highest viewing gallery - is a must-do for all London visitors, enabling guests to experience the capital like never before. Your journey begins in the extraordinary high-speed lifts that carry you to the show-stopping heights of Level 69 and Level 72 where viewing galleries, two Moet & Chandon Champagne bars, and more await.
Level 69 is indoors and offers guests comfortable, unparalleled 360-degree views for up to 40 miles taking in all of the city's iconic landmarks at once. From the ‘open-air skydeck’ on Level 72, kick back, relax and feel the sun (hopefully!) on your face and the breeze in your hair as you gaze down at the city below. Unforgettable!
