What did you get up to?
Our experience started with an Afternoon Tea at Novotel London Bridge. From the beginning, staff members were all very welcoming and to our surprise one of them visited our hometown in Ukraine. All cakes were not only photo worthy but scrumptious as well. We were also given a drinks menu, from which we ordered a cappuccino and a green tea which came in a lovely tea pot.
After this we went to The View From The Shard. After the elevator took us up to the 68th floor, we had the option to walk up three more floors. Whilst going up, we had a lot of fun looking for beloved London attractions: St Paul Cathedral, Tower Bridge and Tower of London. Everything was decorated for the Queen’s Jubilee and felt highly appropriate as we continued embracing Britishness after our Afternoon Tea.
What did you enjoy the most?
Our favourite part of the experience was tasting all the lovely cakes and taking photos and videos of them, while catching up.
At the Shard my favourite spot was roofless terrace with all the photo zones. It was also interesting to see London from a different perspective.
1. Floor 68 is quieter vs. the top floor and perfect for taking photos :)
2. Leave time for a lovely walk down the Thames
3. Leave space in your tummy for all the cakes.
