About View From The Shard :

view from the shardTake the little ones on an adventure 800ft above the ground, the equivalent of the height of 57 double decker busses.

Families can enjoy the city’s iconic skyline, and spot both historic and modern landmarks whilst discovering over 1,000 years of London’s rich culture and history.

As the tallest building in Western Europe, families can experience 360-degree views for up to 40 miles from the attraction’s viewing platforms, located on Level 69 and the open-air Skydeck on Level 72.

Children can hunt down some of London’s most famous sights with a chance to win a monthly prize via the Activity Sheet available to download. The Houses of Parliament, The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, the Olympic Park and Wembley Stadium are just some of the buildings waiting to be discovered.

Parents can entertain themselves with a tipple from London’s highest champagne bar as the sun sets over the city’s skyline. Truly a day out for all the family.
