Fantastic Views

Kew
Location: Age: 45-54 Bought For Mum Occasion: Christmas
No need to book just turned up at 1.35pm on the Sunday, in the lift and on our way five minutes later. Friendly staff, clean environment, security checks on bags. Viewing from floor 69 and 72, small champagne bar on 69 and another small bar on 72, take away coffee was £3.40 and was very nice. No seating in these areas but the staff did fetch a fold away chair for an elderly gent. We had great weather too so view went on and on, spent about 45 mins then had a mooch in the small shop. You must look at the toilets on the 69 floor...they have floor to ceiling glass so you can enjoy the view in there too lol.

The view of London and beyond was sensational. It was a great help for many of the buildings to be identified around the viewing platform

Bought this gift for my mum and she thoroughly enjoyed herself. The views were amazing and we were lucky enough to get up to the top just after sunset but it's actually cheaper to buy the tickets through The Shard on the their website than through buyagift.com which is slightly annoying and you cannot book a slot in advance so we ended up waiting for an hour before we could get to the top as everyone else had booked their slots through The Shard in advance and for a cheaper price.

A great and unhurried experience. We spent nearly two hours taking in the sights and watched London light up after dusk.
