The View from Shard

●   # Rank

London is one of the most admirable and stunning cities on the entire globe, in our opinion. But you simply can't enjoy anything from the ground level, and you need to go higher to witness the best. To see this city's beauty from the sky, visit The Shard. View from the Shard lets you stand on an incredible 800 feet (244 meters) above the earth and take in some of the city's most expansive vistas.

Despite being a relatively recent addition to the London skyline, The Shard is one of the city's most well-known structures. It was completed in 2012, rises 309 meters tall, and has 95 stories. It is the 7th tallest building in Europe and the second free-standing tallest structure in the United Kingdom. The View from The Shard has a viewing platform and sky-high bar that has welcomed guests since 2013. It is the most popular attraction in London without a doubt.
