The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe and you can visit the top of the skyscraper in The View attraction.
London looks so magical at Christmas and the view from the top of this skyscraper is the perfect way to take in the ice rinks and decorations!
The View from The Shard gives 360 degree views of London, which means you can spot all of your favourite landmarks in the city like The Houses of Parliament, The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, the Olympic Park and Wembley Stadium. And because the building is so high, the view can stretch as far as 40 miles!
You’ll also be able to learn lots of facts and information about the landmarks from the high-tech Tell:scopes at The View. They let you zoom in on the most interesting parts of the city and give you information on whatever you’re looking at. The Tell:scopes also let you switch between day time and night time view to see how London changes throughout the day!
