Overview

Immerse yourselves in London and all of the beauty it has to offer with The View from The Shard and afternoon tea experience, where you’ll be treated to unparalleled 360-degree views of the city, along with a delightful afternoon tea at Café Rouge to make this a wonderful day out in the buzzing Capital together.

The Shard delivers spectacular vistas across the whole of London and with its colossal height of being 1,016ft tall, this iconic landmark is now renowned as the tallest tower in Western Europe. Café Rouge is a French bistro-style restaurant, where the interior echoes Parisian charm and culture, treating their guests to all the delights that France has to offer.

The breath-taking experience to The View from the Shard 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. Walk all the way around floors 68 and 69, before making your way up to the open-air Sky deck on level 72, offering views from a vantage point 802 feet (244 metres) above street level. You’ll easily be able to spot legendary landmarks such as St Paul’s Cathedral, The Tower of London, along with the Houses of Parliament and watch the hustle and bustle of the city unfold.

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. Whether you decide to visit day or at night, prepare to be blown away by London’s skyline, where you’ll have ample opportunities to capture stunning photographs of you against the beautiful background and leave with a new perspective of this much-loved city.

Before or after your awe-inspiring experience, enjoy a French twist on a quintessential British afternoon tea at Café Rouge. You’ll dine in a Parisienne bistro-style setting, where the menu will typically comprise of their signature croque monsieur, which is a grilled Emmental cheese and ham sandwich on sourdough with béchamel sauce, or a Portobello mushroom filling as a vegetarian option. An eclectic array of sweet treats will also be on offer, which are sure to tempt your taste buds, including sumptuous scones, served with clotted cream & strawberry jam, or a chocolate mousse. Irresistible cakes such as carrot, lemon, chocolate red velvet and chocolate, raspberry & coconut, will also be on the menu to please your palate further. This afternoon of indulgence wouldn’t be complete without a splendid pot of tea, which you’ll be served alongside this truly satisfying spread.

Shard, London

Shaun CEO, July 2019

This has to be the Perfect Gift for any couple in the Universe!

How could anyone not love a fab Afternoon Tea with a French twist, followed by the very best views of London from the 70th floor of one of the Nation’s Iconic buildings? And all on a sunny day in July……..

We were lucky with the weather which gave us the chance to have our Afternoon Tea outside so that we could people-watch whilst over-eating cake, plus we had amazingly clear views of everything that London represents.

Our Afternoon Tea was a little unusual for aficionados of this traditional treat: it had a Croque Monsieur instead of cucumber sandwiches. Personally, a way better experience (I don’t get Croque Monsieur at home!). The tea was really relaxed and the staff made everything really easy and polite. My other half is from Brazil and the concept of Afternoon Tea is very English and quaint, so everyone was happy..

After eating far too much, we strolled slowly to The Shard (5 minutes from Hay’s Gallery where the Café Rouge is located).

The Shard is a unique experience and incredibly professionally managed. 14 million visitors a year nowadays and a massive London attraction in itself. It’s easy to forget that there are lots of luxury apartments in the building where people live, as well as restaurants and a 5 star hotel. The vision and ambition behind such a building is truly extraordinary.

There are a number of slightly different levels in the Shard from where to view London. There are cocktail bars, ice cream concessions and sometimes live music up there as well as the extraordinary panoramic views. It can become a little crowded with people sticking to the glass to soak up the vista, but be patient and you will be able to see every bit of London that you really want to see. Viewing immense buildings from the roof is a unique experience so take your time and take it all in.

Oh, and on our way out a quick visit to the loo revealed a 69th floor-to-ceiling window overlooking London! This might put a few people off!!

All-in-all a great afternoon out and something I recommend to everyone looking for a gift for a couple.

Top Tip
Go to the toilet on the 69th floor, it has a great view of the city!

My son bought me this experience for Christmas. Despite my apprehension, I am afraid of heights, I went to the Shard at my appointed time slot. It was easy to get to on the tube and very close to London Bridge station. Very well signposted. I checked in very quickly with no problems, went through security and within 15 minutes of arriving I had the most amazing views of London! At no time did I feel it was crowded, there was no ‘fight’ to get a good view. It’s an incredible experience and I didn’t feel apprehensive or scared once! Far too interested in looking around. All the staff were friendly and helpful, would definitely recommend.

It was a gift from our son and daughter-in-;law and whilst The Shard was great the Afternoon Tea at Browns was very poor. Thought you needed to know.

This was a gift and what a wonderful one it was. The Shard is a must to visit. Beautifully maintained with excellent staff. Afternoon tea at Brown's at Butlers Wharf was delightful. Good food and a restaurant we certainly will return to.

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.
