  3. The View from The Shard


Journey to the clouds where an ethereal vista of the metropolis awaits you, and see the Ben, Eye, Bridge, Palace and Thames in a way like never before. Soaring above London, The View from The Shard is the highest viewing deck in the city, offering 360-degree panoramic views from a spellbinding height of 244 meters (800 feet). Opened to the public in early 2013, this iconic attraction above The Shard is based on three levels- 68, 69 and 72. Supersonic elevators fitted with multimedia take you to 'The View' in merely ear-popping 30 seconds. From the topmost level on floor 72, the spectacular view of the shimmering city unravels and if you look above then you will see the shards of glass melting into the heavens. This one is truly an experience you can't afford to miss, so book your tickets ahead.
