Amazing experience! On our way out one of the very many amazing members of the team stopped us to ask us about our experience. It was so foggy tonight, so visibility was really limited. We were asked to go to the front desk where we we're presented, without request, two complimentary return tickets for another visit, valid for the next 3 or so months. On our 2nd wedding anniversary, we couldn't have wanted for more. Thank you so much to the Shard team. You're worth every penny!

Friday #London Fact:
Only ever partially completed in 1891 in Wembley Park, Watkin's Tower was proposed to be 358m (1,175ft) high - 14% bigger than The Shard!

Watkin's Tower would have also had two viewing galleries - just like us! Experience the newest and highest viewing platform in London http://bit.ly/13Z0bB2

It's called The View. There is indeed a very good view. The rest is your typical tourist trap - marked up photos (£18 for a single photo?!?!), expensive drinks, and endless gift shops. I won't begrudge them this (I can understand how expensive it must have been) but it slightly taints the experience once you've already paid £20 each (at the student rate). However - the telescope viewing things were a real revolution in "going to high places for a better view". They let you see the view zoomed in and show what it would look like at sunset, or on a sunny day, which is great if it's cloudy such as it was for me!

Excellent experience! This viewing tower gives you the opportunity to see many of London's sights and landmarks from high above. Photo opportunities at every corner... However the 'Green Screen' photos that are sold by the operators of the viewing platform are quite overpriced in my opinion. There is a small bar where you can purchase hot and cold drinks on the open-air viewing platform. The second viewing platform (open-air) is quite an experience as you are exposed to the elements via gaps in the 'shards' of glass that make up the structure. The first viewing platform is perfect for getting lots of pictures of the beautiful view through the large, clean panels of glass. The lift that takes you up to The View From The Shard takes you upwards and downwards in less than a minute. Your time spent on the viewing platforms is *not* limited so feel free to take your time! The shop located at the base of the shard sells memorabilia such as postcards, toys and souvenirs, as well as informative books about the architecture of The Shard. Not too expensive depending on what you choose to purchase. The guide book costs around £10. I highly recommend this excellent experience - a must-see on any visit to London.

It's worth a trip up to the top of the shard to get a view of London. It can however get a little crowded and getting a decent photo of the view isn't easy. It's not an open top view either so you're taking pics through a glass pane, but it's a pleasant sight none the less.

The view from the shard is amazing if there is no fog but the shard gives you a free ticket if you cant see some other attractions. You should go there even if you are older.

Expensive but worth it! It's costly to go up to the top but I'd recommend it to anyone visiting for the first time. You can see pretty much every single significant building and landmark in central London from here and the guide they give you helps identify them. It can be busy and cold but sunset is the best time to go. You can see the city by day and night! There is champagne available for purchase at the top and it can be a very romantic experience. The staff is so professional they really made the whole evening.

It was something different for me to do but although I enjoyed it and felt welcomed I wouldn't come back again.

Of course, the view is good, but dare I say it's too high!? The London Eye is lower and more centrally placed so the great landmarks of London are far clearer and prettier. I would also have preferred a genuine open-air peer-through-railings wind-in-the-hair type experience, not this sterile, dirty, plate glass offering. Not even the excitement-building experience of a lift with windows. Upper deck packed, couldn't get near the view. Not many smiles anywhere..... A tenner would be a fair price; £25 is way too much.

Great view, loved it last few times I went, but if you're an artist, just expect to be treated like trash and demonised for trying to do your art stuff up there. Plans ruined.
