Overview

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. The menu will typically include a selection of finger sandwiches filled with cucumber & cream cheese or coronation chicken, brioche rolls filled with lobster & prawn or egg & watercress, delicious fluffy scones with clotted cream & strawberry jam, smoked salmon & cream cheese on whisky & thyme oatcake and of course delightful mini desserts such as Victoria sponge, elderflower & gin posset, opera cake, salted caramel profiteroles and carrot cake. A delicious spread all to be washed down with a refreshing pot of tea or coffee.

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

I booked this 2 weeks prior to the event, a very late Christmas present from our family. A fantastic day in beautiful sunny London. The view from the Shard was amazing as the weather was so good. We weren't as impressed with the afternoon tea as too much cakes and the tiny 3 pieces savory weren't fresh.

I bought this for my cousin and her boyfriend to join us on our experience as my partner and I had already had a Christmas voucher for this experience. I had already been once to the Shard before for lunch and the views were gorgeous. But this time we went specifically for the views and went even higher in the Shard this time. The weather was perfect so we really enjoyed the views, I couldn't believe there was no roof! The afternoon tea was just a short walk away, and oh my, it was tasty and veery generous. We ended up taking most of our cakes home with us. All in all great value for money & well worth it!

We had gift voucher for an activity and chose View from the Shard and Afternoon Tea. Was a brilliant day; we had clear skies so the views were awesome. The Southbank is a favourite place so the walk to Butlers Wharf for afternoon was lovely and the tea well worth the stroll.
