The View is situated at the top of The Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe on floors 68, 69 and 72.
The Shard is a new landmark building in London, designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano. At a height of 1,016ft (310m) The Shard redefines London's skyline and will be a dynamic symbol of London, recognisable throughout the World. The name 'Shard' comes from its sculpted design which consists of glass facets that incline inwards but do not meet at the top and open to the sky to allow the building to breathe naturally. The View experience will be a high tech and multi-sensory journey, with exhilarating 360° views previously unseen, stretching 40 miles across the city. At a height of 800ft (244m), The View will become almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in London. This will be a premium visitor experience, offering guests an unparalleled encounter with an incredible building and the creativity, history and culture of London.
