We had pre booked tickets - did not spend much time queuing - very organised and kept the crowds moving. Lifts were an experience of their own!!! Time at the top was not rushed or crowded - could spend as long or as little time...More

If you want to skip one of the more pricier things to do, this could be it. Very nice view but if you are a family of four on a budget, don’t.

A very well organised attraction with great staff and lovely bars to enjoy. The star of the show is of course the view. We had a clear day and the views were magnificent. Totally brilliant! Very good value.

We had been on a London Underground walking tour in the morning then visited The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret. Came out and there was the Shard. So we went up it. Very expensive. The photographs were a total rip off.

Great attraction offering superb views over London. The area is really roomy and it is nice to have a quick glass of champagne. Maybe try and avoid busy times as you will need to squeeze in between people to get a decent view.

What a view of the whole of London. You can stay as long as you like. Beware if you have trouble with your ears. The lifts go very fast.

Yes of course the view is magnificent but the bar is limited and it took ages to get 4 glasses of shampoo - despite the bar not being that busy. No where to sit down - and as I am temporarily walking on crutches -...More

Good views but what puts you off is the long lines. At the end of the day London is no New York so you wonder what the fuss is all about.

Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
