The Shard is London's newest and largest landmark. At over one thousand feet, it is the tallest building in Western Europe, and soon to be the hottest tourist attraction in the capital.
Opening to the public from the 1st of February, you will be able to visit The Shard, and travel up seventy-two floors in its two high-speed 'kaleidoscopic' glass lifts that will give you a complete and astonishing 360 degree view of the city. It won't take long to reach the top, where you will experience the wonder of London's skyline, brought to life through multimedia displays.
The Shard is like a merging of The London Eye, and Willy Wonka's Great Glass Elevator, and The View experience will be open between 9am-10pm every day. You can buy tickets on the day at £29.95 for adults and £23.95 for children, but you will save money by pre-booking online for £24.95 and £18.95.
