What people are saying about The Shard
The views from the Shard at night are incredible, and well worth seeing. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The majority of the staff were friendly and helpful. However the security staff nearly spoiled our visit by being rude, condescending and very unhelpful. I realise they have an important role, but that is no excuse to talk to people like they are common criminals. However apart from that the experience was good and I would recommend it to others.
Being dropped off quite a distance from the Shard we took a taxi, but it was worth the extra it cost us, we were not sure we could sort the underground out, and not sure which bus would get us there, but hey ho, it did not matter, all went according to plan and we really enjoyed the experience, the weather was obviously on our side, and the sun lit up the whole area, just awesome, we are sure to go back again.
The view from the Shard was wonderful. Fairly busy, and lots of people ‘camping’ beside the windows as that’s the only way to ensure a good viewing sesh. Not sure why this packaging included the phrase ‘champagne optional’ - there’s no offer here, it’s just available to purchase at the bar with all the other beverages.
Staff were very welcoming and helpful, didn't really feel the lift move, although experienced slight pressure in ears, walking out to the viewing area was a bit unnerving but very exciting, weather was good so could see for miles, it was fun trying to pick out famous landmarks. Great experience full stop.
A very good morning activity, alas weather - wet and windy and misty - could have been better. A little confused about 'optional champagne' wording on ticket, but otherwise the tour from arrival to departure was very well organised.
