The View from The Shard
The View from The Shard is the new premium attraction at the pinnacle of The Shard, London’s newest landmark and Western Europe’s tallest building developed by Sellar property in association with LBQ Ltd.
The attraction provides a remarkable opportunity to experience London like never before and provides a unique encounter with The Shard. The View from the Shard is the highest vantage point in Western Europe and the only place it is possible to see all of London all at once providing spectacular 40 mile (64km), 360-degree views of the city from 800ft (244m) above London.
The Shard is a landmark building on the London skyline, designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano to a vertical town comprising offices, restaurants, the five star Shangri-La hotel, residences, retail and the View from The Shard. At a height of 1,016 ft (310 m) the building redefines London’s skyline and is a dynamic symbol of the Capital, recognisable throughout the world. The name ‘Shard’ comes from the sculpted design, which consists of glass facets that incline inwards, open to the sky at the top to allow the building to breathe naturally. London church spires and masts of ships which once anchored on the River Thames inspired the elegant building.
The Shard is the iconic new building at the heart of the London Bridge Quarter - the £2bn regeneration project being developed by Sellar Property in association with LBQ Ltd. London Bridge Quarter is a catalyst for a wider regeneration of the area In addition to delivering top quality offices in The Shard and The Place, together with restaurants, bars, and a hotel and the development is attracting tourists to a diverse and culturally rich neighbourhood. LBQ is also facilitating a dramatic improvement in the transport infrastructure with major investment in London Bridge Station and a completed new bus station.
