Breathe in the splendour of London with The View from the Shard. From the city’s highest viewing platform at the top of Western Europe’s tallest building, you’ll enjoy unobstructed 360 degree views of over 200 famous landmarks and buildings. Since its opening in 2012, this incredible landmark and experience has quickly established itself as one of the UK’s top attractions, and this is your chance to find out exactly why!
Days out in London just aren’t the same without afternoon tea anymore. So you can enjoy its sparkling namesake at a Brasserie Blanc in one of three choice locations – Charlotte Street in the West End, Belvedere Road in Southbank or Tower Bridge in the City. You’ll be able to relax in your luxurious surroundings with your pick of speciality teas or infusion from the popular Teapigs range or coffee, if you'd prefer. Enjoy dainty finger sandwiches with traditional fillings, freshly baked scones served with home-made jam and Devonshire clotted cream as well as a selection of handmade desserts and cakes of the day. With an accompanying glass of sparkling French wine this is a delicious way to make your day go further.
