We've introduced a new exhilarating Virtual Reality experience on our open-air Skydeck. For a limited time, you'll be able to test your balance on ‘Vertigo’... if you dare! 

Test your nerve and fear of heights on Vertigo! This virtual adventure sees the building fall away, leaving you suspended in the air, walking across The Shard’s early infrastructure and balancing on the stripped back construction site of Western Europe’s tallest building. Romeo the fox - our mascot that represents the intrepid real fox who was discovered on Level 72 during construction of the building - also makes an appearance as you take your instructions from the site foreman. 

*Terms and conditions: An additional charge of £10 for Vertigo experience. Tickets can be bought on the day, on our open-air Skydeck. Suitable for ages 12+ further restrictions apply. In the event of rain or storms, the VR experience will be unavailable. A Virtual Reality experience can be unsuitable for people with certain ailments or conditions. A waiver outlining these conditions must be read and signed prior to using the experiences. The VR experience is subject to queues. Early arrival is advised to avoid disappointment.
