The View from The Shard is an observation deck between the 68th and 72nd floors of The Shard, the tallest building in London. The View from The Shard consists of a triple level indoor gallery on the 69th floor and a partially outdoor gallery on the 72nd floor. It was opened on 1 February 2013 by the then Mayor of London Boris Johnson. In its first year of opening, it was visited by 900,000 people and made a profit of over £5 million.

The triple-height main viewing gallery on the 69th floor gives 360-degree views of up to 40 miles (60 km) and is equipped with interactive digital telescopes named "Tell-scopes" which can identify famous landmarks and places of interest and provide information about them in 10 different languages.
