Description

Ascend to the summit of The Shard with a priority-access ticket and take in spectacular panoramic views across London from the highest tower in Europe!

Culminating at 310 metres high, the The Shard's observation deck is the highest in London and in Europe. 

With your fast-track tickets, you will benefit from priority access to The Shard without waiting in line! 

Take the ultra-fast elevator up to the 33rd floor then relaunch towards the 69th floor where you can marvel at the views across London, the Thames and the City from the interior observation deck. 

Continue your ascension to reach the lofty 72nd floor and The Shard’s exterior observation deck. On this 360° platform, you can walk around the top of this giant needle that pierces the sky above London, admiring the views that extend some 40 miles into the distance on a clear day.
