The View from the Shard – the viewing floors at the top of the skyscraper are offering open-dated tickets at half price for a couple of weeks.
An open-dated ticket lets you turn up any day you want — that the Shard is open — before 30th April 2021.
Normally they cost £30, but are available for £15 if you buy before 5pm on 2nd November.
By comparison, a standard turn up on a set date ticket would cost you £28, so buying one of these open-dated tickets saves money and gives you some flexibility about when you want to visit.
Photography tip – cities often look their best around sunset when the lights come on, but there’s still enough sunlight to see the buildings clearly. Time your arrival for half an hour or so before sunset.
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
