Tickets to The View from The Shard Experience, have to be the hottest in town. London’s newest attraction, when it opens in February 2013, promises to be sensational. At a height of 1,016ft (310m) it redefines London’s skyline and will be a dynamic symbol of the city that will become recognisable throughout the world.
Taller, sharper, cooler
But it’s not just the fact that this is the tallest building in Western Europe – the shape is also stunningly remarkable. Crystalline glass facets incline gently inwards, but do not meet at the top. This not only creates a unique profile but means the needle sharp summit is open to the sky, allowing the building to breathe naturally.
It will be a vertical microcosm of the city itself with prestigious offices, extraordinary restaurants and the capital’s highest viewing gallery – at 800ft it’s almost twice as high as any other viewing platform in the city and offers breath taking 360° views that stretch for 40 miles.
