Immerse yourselves in London and all of the beauty it has to offer with a View at The Shard 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.

You'll easily be able to spot legendary landmarks such as St Paul's Cathedral, the London Eye, The Tower of London, along with the Houses of Parliament and watch the hustle and bustle of the city unfold as you admire from above.

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.
