I cannot recommend The View From The Shard enough. It is an incredible experience and worth every penny. All of the staff were so friendly and polite. Everything was immaculately clean, they even have staff with vacuum cleaner back packs sporadically cleaning. The 360 degree views of London are breathtaking. The staff do a good job of not letting the place get too crowded
With a magnificent view of London from what is essentially a hilltop perspective. We had afternoon tea here and were happily perched some way above tower bridge although very pricey. Nicely brewed teas and the accompanying sandwiches, scones and cakes make this experience feel special. The staff are very polite especially our server (sorry I forgot her name)The service is also excellent by the way.
