Spectacular views of London and beyond from up high at The Shard will come with high ticket prices, it has been revealed.

Tickets for The View from The Shard attraction, offering 64km (40 mile), 360-degree views from 244m (800ft) up, will go on sale from 9am tomorrow.

The visitor experience will open on February 1 next year.

Advance tickets cost £24.95 for adults and £18.95 for children – giving a total entrance price of nearly £100 for a family of four.

As part of the experience, visitors will travel in two high-speed ‘kaleidoscopic’ lifts

that take just 30 seconds each to reach level 68.

From there they make their way to the light-filled level 69 where the view is revealed.

Guests can choose to go even higher to the full 244m level 72, the highest public

level of The Shard.

The View from The Shard is the highest vantage point from any building in western

Europe and almost twice as high as any other viewing point in London.

Tickets can be purchased from website www.theviewfromtheshard.com or via the box

office on 0844 499 7111.
