Also 7.07% TCB. The Shard rarely seems to do offers, spotted this and think it's excellent. You can only book for 10am, 1:30pm or 9pm on mon-fri or 10am on Saturdays. You can be up to half an hour late. Once up you can spend as long as you like , audio guides and human guides are available to ask questions to and two different levels of view, one inside and one open air.

They had a promo where children went free last year which I took advantage of, then I discovered Skygardens and now that is now favourite, which if you go after 6pm, doesn't require booking.

£15.95 to go up a lift??

Isn't £15.95 just £5 off advance price of £20.95 ?

Not just any lift

Awesome. Was looking for a shard deal last night only and couldn't find anyplace doing better prices.

I am sure this is going to be hot

For £4 you can take a trip up Monument which is not as high but offers just as spectacular views. Having done both I can say that The Shard is vastly overpriced even at £15.95. Sorry

Oh wow! This is an amazing deal, thank you! Love the fact that I can be up to half an hour late- I run late for everywhere

Instead of going up the monstrosity that is the shard, I would recommend going for a drink at the duck and waffle, fl 40 heron tower (near liverpool street). duckandwaffle.com

Worst attraction in London! Too expensive and only worth if the glass windows were cleaned just before your visit

I agree the view from the shard is over priced, but why pay £4 when you can go up the Sky garden nearly next door for free to give hugely superior views and not be knackered once you get to the top after walking up so many steps?

I always recommend people visiting london to go to the Sky garden.

The cheese grater is a completely different building. You meant that to say "Walkie Talkie". The cheese grater is taller than the walkie talkie, but not sure if open to the public and certainly isn't where the Sky garden is.

Sky garden (as linked to above) is *far* better. We go there 3 or 4 times a year and have drinks with friends.

The Sky Garden is absolutely worth a trip too - and it's free.

I've been wanting to go there but couldn't see any info on visits without booking. Some one said that even during the day you can go in without booking by queueing up?

Thanks for the tip. I've not been there but will definitely give it a go next time we're in the big smoke

For the adults... get the lift up to Aqua Bar (which is free) at the Shard and experience very similar views but with a nice beverage for the price of the tourist ticket...

I've never really understood the attraction of being taken up the shard oO

still overpriced - I'd maybe pay £10 but even then its pushing it when you can go to the sky garden for free

AND you get to come back down in a lift as well so it's also a 2 for 1 offer.

We did the Shard on Sat April 8th on a day trip to London. We went for the 13:30 slot which is cheaper. We qualified for a family ticket - and for 2 adults and 2 children it was £51.80. We all really enjoyed it and thought it was good value. It is very quick to get to the top and there are great views. It is very well organised and very little queuing despite the aiport style security. We did the London Eye the same day and had to queue for an hour even having pre booked tickets. The 2 were similarly priced (we got 2 for 1 Eye tickets through the "travel by train" site) but the Shard was much more enjoyable.

Why are the public opening times 10am to 6pm on weekdays then?

Would've got more heat had the title been "Take your mum up the shard". Got plenty of heat last time.

Monument and the Sky Garden are great options too. There's also the free Tate viewing gallery on the 10th floor of their newish building. It's 360 degrees and open air. Superb views over the river and look into the apartments where the owners are trying to sue the Tate (despite the Tate having planning permission years before the apartments).

if students can afford to waste money on this, then we need to be increasing tuition fees more.

Just go in for a drink. The bar is about half way up and you only pay for your drink. I went last year and did that. I certainly wouldn't pay to go to the top, i'd much rather go do a meal somewhere.

Or take your wife up the Shard.... that's usually good for a chuckle.

Went up for a drink the other week bit boring if you ask me but everybody's different so guess some think it's good but i live local and with so much around i dont find any of these tourist places a big deal.

We have an office in the Walkie Talkie and thus I go in the Sky Garden, which is free, regularly. Its better than the Shard, the floor is a bit lower but at 37 floors up its well high enough. Bar and restaurants there. Views on every side beat the Shard as on the correct side of the river. Tower of London down to Canary Wharf one side; Shard, City Hall, HMS Belfast etc another; St Paul's down to the London Eye another side; and the City- Gherkin, Cheese Grater etc the last side. I always wonder why people pay money to go up The Shard or on the London Eye. If you every want to eat in a restaurant go for the cheaper Brasserie- its better in my view. Have to book usually plenty of time in advance for the restaurants.

People must be mad to pay for this

you just have to book a few weeks in advance- availability all day on Sat 6th May for example, in fact all that preceding week is open for booking- you cannot be looking early enough.

Do you know if once you've eaten in the restaurant are you free to stay in the sky gardens? Looking at dinner in the brasserie but hoping to catch sunset.!
