What can I expect on the day

Visit one of the world's most talked about buildings and sample a classic British institution on this afternoon tea and The Shard package that we have specially put together for you! The Shard, designed by leading Italian architect Renzo Piano dominates the skyline in London and this experience gives you the chance to head up to the viewing floors of the Shard and enjoy a classic afternoon tea once you come back down to earth on street level.

The Shard is currently the tallest building in Western Europe. Standing proud in the London Bridge area, this magnificent building was the centrepiece of the extensive renovation works and regeneration of this whole quarter south of the river. As well as housing offices, apartments and hotels, the building is open to the public and this deal allows you fast track access to The Shard visitor area AND afternoon tea at a trendy nearby brasserie to round off your vertiginous visit in the best possible way.

Two high speed 'kaleidoscope' lifts whisk visitors up to the 68th floor of The Shard in seconds and from here you can explore the 360 degree views of London from the 68th, 69th and 72nd floors of this very impressive glass-fronted building that dominates the London skyline at 244m. On a clear day you can see over 40miles giving you amazing vistas of the the capital and surrounding Home Counties!

Following on from your amazing Shard visit, it's the afternoon tea experience. You'll be heading to the London City South Novotel on nearby Southwark Street where your table at the ‘Elements’ bar and restaurant will be waiting for you. Serving a range of specialty teas, coffees and hot chocolate too, you'll be able to take your pick of hot drink as you munch away on your usual teatime treats.

After your fantastic high rise encounter and you're back on terra firma, what could be better than a good old cup of fresh-brewed leaf tea and some dainty cakes? It's a building for Britons to be proud of and no Shard visit should be complete without afternoon tea afterwards in the now fashionable and very much sought after neighbourhood around this architectural wonder.

Review posted last month
Shard was fantastic. Afternoon tea could have been a lot better

The Shard & Tea for Two
Review posted 5 months ago
We really enjoyed out visit to the shard. The afternoon tea venue didn't really match in grandeur- there wasn't anything wrong but the venue lacked atmosphere and was virtually empty. The tea was ok but we have had better and the sandwich selection was a bit limited.
I didn't like the booking process
1) you have to register your voucher
2) you then have to contact an agent
3) you then have to arrange your dates
4) you then have to ring the shard to check the booked time is ok

the agent booked the shard visit and tea on different dates - luckily we noticed.
the gift was a nice thought but I felt we would have selected a different dining venue if we separately booked it ourselves
No, I do not recommend this product.

The Shard & Tea for Two
Review posted about 1 year ago
The visit was very good, it was a pity the weather was not kinder to us but having the telescopes really helped us to locate buildings and tell us more history about what we could have seen on a clear sunny day,
Tea at the Novotel was also very good.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Review posted about 2 years ago
It was fantastic - loved the Shard and afternoon tea was great, I wasn't at first impressed that our afternoon tea was going to be in the Novotel, but I couldn't fault it, the food was lovely and the service was great, would top you up with coffee if you wanted it, and gave us a table with a view of The Shard, really great - very enjoyable experience, and would happily recommend it.

Looking forward to my next one.
Yes, I recommend this product.
