Ahead of its opening on 1 February, details of The View from the Shard visitor experience at London's tallest skyscraper have been revealed.

The attraction's viewing platforms sit on levels 69 and 72 of the 1,016ft (310m) landmark building - developed by Sellar Property in association with LBQ Ltd as part of a £2bn regeneration project for the London Bridge area.

Starting at the ground floor galleries, visitors to The View from the Shard will be greeted by playful depictions of more than 140 famous Londoners including Boris Johnson, Kate Moss, King Henry VII and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Four lifts, enhanced with video screens and mirrors to create the effect of soaring through some of London's most iconic ceilings and roofs, will transport visitors to viewing galleries 800ft (244m) up.

At the top 360-degree views of the city extending 40m (64km) showcase landmarks such as Alexandra Palace, the Olympic Stadium, Tower of London, Battersea Power Station, St Paul's Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace.

The experience will be enhanced with 12, free to use Tell:scopes - high-tech digital telescopes being used in Europe for the first time.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the experience and visitors are encouraged to share content on The View from the Shard's Facebook and Twitter accounts using the hashtag #shardview.

The Shard will also feature offices, residences, international restaurants and a 5-star Shangri-La hotel.
