Amazing views! Absolutely recommend this place! The bar and cocktails were excellent a bit on the pricey side but where else could you see views of London like this!

We went up to the highest level. It was raining and very windy. Great night view, enjoy the time up there. Plus there was free Wi-Fi, my boys love it.

The reason for the visit was a family celebration, and the meal was excellent, the staff attentive and entertaining, so the unfortunate weather was of no consequence

It really is quite expensive, but the views on London are spectacular. Security is tight and a big of a drag, but that's the world we live in... Time your visit to arrive just as the sun is setting and you'll get to see all...More

Tip, buy your ticket early. Make a day of it and visit London Bridge, the London Bridge Experience and the Shard all at the same time. Easy walk from each attraction.

Great view of London. It was a bit difficult to find its entrance as there is no sign at train station nearby. We finally found the queue for ticket near the hotel gate.

We went to the Shard as a family for a trip up to see the view and have a glass of Champagne. It was very cold the day we went, but the view was excellent. Well worth a trip

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

For such an important moment in your life you don't want it cluttered by dozens of tourists. So go early or late and you may find a quiet corner. I suggest you confide in one of the stewards , arm him or her with a camera... More
