Overview

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.

Please note, this gift voucher is not your entry ticket, pre-booking is essential for this experience.

This was bought as s birthday gift and didn't know what to expect but the views from the Shard were absolutely amazing, couldn't have picked a better day as it was really clear and could see for miles. There was no rush to leave we could take our time and even enjoyed a glass of wine!! This was followed by afternoon tea at Browns Restaurant. Did have a problem getting directions from the Shard but when we arrived at Browns for afternoon tea it was lovely. Not only the view overlooking the Thames but afternoon tea couldn't have been better and staff very friendly. All in all a lovely day with lovely memories.

At our Golden Wedding earlier in the Year this year we were given this trip as a present. We had a good day out sight seeing in London and then visited The Shard followed by afternoon tea at Browns Tea Rooms on the Thames Embankment. It was a wonderful view from the top of the Shard. The sights of London were great viewed from so high. We spent several hours at the at the top and really enjoyed ourselves. Followed by a lovely afternoon tea in Brown's. We also fitted in some sigh seeing, the weather was kind to us and we had a great day out.

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!
