Spoil you or someone special to a wonderful day out in London with this View from the Shard and Afternoon Tea for Two gift experience.
Hailing as the tallest tower in Western Europe, The Shard boasts panoramic views over the vibrant Capital, where you’ll rise 802ft above the city to see as far as 40 miles away, twice as far as any other vantage point in London. During this breath-taking experience you’ll be able to admire famous sights including the London Eye, Tower of London, Big Ben, St Paul’s and many more from the wonderful Shard viewing gallery. Day or night, The Shard will provide an awe-inspiring view of London’s skyline, with an abundance of photo opportunities, capturing moments that can be treasured forever.
The Shard also has a state-of-the-art interactive touchscreen telescope, where you’ll have the opportunity to discover more fascinating facts about 200 landmarks, as well as the option to see them in different settings using the day, night, sunrise and sunset filters available.
Whether you’re a lover of London or new to this city’s streets, you’re sure to enjoy the Capital from a completely new perspective with this experience.
The Shard is nothing short of magnificent from start to finish. When you arrive, you’ll enter the lift where you’ll go from level 1 to level 69 in a minute, reaching the triple-height viewing platform, spoiling you to 360 degree panoramic views of the city. Take a trip to Level 72, the open-air sky deck, which will only enhance the spectacular vistas and as you overlook London’s streets, you’ll be able to hear the hustle and bustle roaring down below.
The Shard Weather Guarantee also ensures poor weather conditions will not affect your experience. This ensures that if on the day of your visit you aren’t able to see 3 of 5 specific landmarks, you’ll be given a return ticket for £5 in which you can revisit within 3 months at a time of your choice. Please note, you’ll be informed by the Shard staff if this has been authorised and the return ticket will need to be claimed before you leave.
Before or after your mesmerising experience depending on how you prefer to spend your day out, you’ll savour a delicious afternoon tea at Browns, Butlers Wharf. Expect a splendid spread, comprised of a sumptuous selection of finger sandwiches, with fillings including cucumber & cream cheese or coronation chicken, brioche rolls filled with lobster & prawn or egg & watercress, as well as smoked salmon & cream cheese on whisky & thyme oatcake. An array of sweet delights will also be served, with delightful scones with clotted cream & strawberry jam and mini desserts including Victoria sponge, elderflower & gin posset, opera cake, salted caramel profiteroles and carrot cake. Of course this afternoon tea wouldn’t be complete without a refreshing pot of tea or coffee, which will be served alongside these savoury and sweet delights.
