Morning everyone. I am new on this forum and have joined to find out about The View from the Shard. I plan to propose to my girlfriend and thought that The View from the Shard would be a good place to do so as it is would be an evening proposal and the beautiful view of London would be seen. There are a few questions which I have about The View from the Shard and would be grateful if they were answered. 1. Do I need to prebook the tickets for The View from the Shard? 2. Do you think any special arrangements can be made if I notify the staff there that I will be proposing to my girlfriend? 3. Are there drinks and snacks available there? 4. As I plan an evening proposal I need to know what time The View from the Shard is open until.
