Description

Stand with your head in the clouds and witness breath-taking, panoramic views over the whole of London from the top of the tallest tower in Western Europe with this View from The Shard and Afternoon Tea for Two at Browns experience. Piercing the skies above London, The Shard has quickly become a towering and iconic symbol amongst the city landscape. Standing a colossal height of 1,016 feet (310 meters) tall, The Shard, with its dramatic glass splinter-like form, has redefined the Capital’s skyline with its unique design.

The View from The Shard will give you the opportunity to see London like never before. Take in unobstructed views of London’s most famous sights including Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the Gherkin, the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

The visit starts at ground level, as you step into the super-smooth kaleidoscopic lift and travel at high-speed up to the triple-height viewing platform on level 69. From here you can explore the sweeping views, set out on three spacious levels, with floor-to-ceiling windows on every side of the building to allow visitors the chance to gaze out at landmarks up to 40 miles away. Walk all the way around floors 68 and 69, before heading up to the open-air Skydeck on level 72 - a viewing platform offering 360-degree views across the capital and beyond from a vantage point 802 feet (244 metres) above street level.

State-of-the-art interactive touchscreen telescopes enable you to explore the views in greater detail, with information about 200 landmarks and alternative day, night, sunrise and sunset filters. The View From the Shard’s team of knowledgeable guest ambassadors are on hand to answer any questions you have and will help bring the view to life.

After your journey to the skies (or before, depending on your booking) head to Browns, Butlers Wharf and enjoy a spot of afternoon tea for two. Enjoy a spread of finger sandwiches with delicious fillings such as smoked salmon and egg and cress as well as scones with thick clotted cream and jam. Tuck into delicate mini desserts such as a lemon tart, salted caramel profiteroles and a white chocolate pot.

Your voucher is not your entry ticket, pre-booking is essential.

Fabulous Views

We visited The View from The Shard on Thursday October 5th, and although our ticket was for 12 noon we arrived early and were able to proceed immediately. All the staff were pleasant and helpful and we began by going to Floor 72. We were so lucky to be there on a day when the views were spectacularly clear and there was a comfortable number of fellow visitors. We then descended to Floor 69, which is the enclosed area and perhaps gets quite warm on a hotter day. Again we were able to enjoy the fabulous view although we wished we had remembered to bring the binoculars. The View from the Loos on Floor 68 mustn't be missed.

Superb London views

We were treated to this experience as an anniversary gift and it surpassed our wildest expectations . It was easy to get to , very well organised and the view from The Shard itself was utterly striking . My wife and I have been aloft in the Empire State building and the CN Tower in Toronto and I would rate the London view as at least on a par with those two . Highly recommended ! Thank you very much .

Delightful day

I brought this as a gift for Valentine's day and although it took us a while to use the voucher (through our own commitments) it was a great day. The shard was well organised and the views were outstanding. It's was great fun spotting the sights of London. Afternoon tea at browns was relaxed, delicious and something I'd defiantly do again.

good views

Exchanged a night away for this as we hadn't got time for the break. . The views were great and good weather meant we had a clear panorama of the London skyline. Even the toilet had a fantastic view. My disappointment was there was no seats anywhere for someone who is partially disabled I found this difficult. Even where there were refreshments available there were no seats. Luckily they found me a folding chair which my husband moved round for me. Unfortunately we didn't do the tea which I was looking forward too, I did not feel well enough to go.

Title is misleading!

The view from the shard was nice, but the afternoon tea was a good 20 min walk away - the title made us think it was in the same building at least! - we were late and out of breath arriving for our afternoon tea, which was 'ok', but terrible weak tea and service was very slow.
