For the ultimate gift experience, see the city of London from the highest observation deck in the United Kingdom - the glittering and impressive Shard. Travel up The Shard, which measures a whopping 800 feet from street level, and once at the top see the 360 degree view that spans 40 miles. After your journey to the skies (or before, depending on your booking), come back down to earth and enjoy a delicious two-course lunch with tea or coffee from the set menu at Strada, a contemporary Italian restaurant just a short walk from The Shard. With a lively atmosphere, this is a great place to dine and a total contrast to having your head in the clouds.

This was a birthday gift for a dear friend. The day was everything we had hoped for, and my friend will never forget her experience. The staff at both The Shard and Strada were brilliant. Thank you Red Letter Day.
This red letter experience was given to us to help celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We have had a most fantastic day out and would recommend this to all our family and friends
Well organised. Polite, friendly staff. Simply amazing views! The police helicopter circling, with the crew waving and then diving at speed was an incredible extra! Glad I took my binoculars too. Food in Strada was very good and the views over the Thames to Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and HMS Belfast were fabulous! Great day with great memories - we highly recommend this experience!
The view from The shard is well worth a visit........72 floors up in the sky!!!!!! The set menu at The Strada was very tasty and has a lovely view overlooking London Bridge. Great day. Good memories made.
The whole experience was very good .The service and staff was excellent . The views were awesome .
Wonderful day with glass of champagne at top of the Shard followed by lunch right next to Thames. Wonderful day to remember. Great offer.
Needs to be done, the speed of the lifts are breathtaking and a very well run spectacle. The staff are very pleasant and relaxed.
Both the Shard and lunch at Strada were excellent, would highly recommend this experience
An amazing day out in London with the added bonus of a view from the shard - (the only place I can honestly say a trip to the toilets is a must!) followed by a lovely meal overlooking the Thames. Excellent value for money and a truly memorable day
Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Shard followed by lunch at Strada which was a Birthday treat. The Shard was a welcome surprise due to the superb staff throughout the experience, as well as the superb views. Lunch at Strada with the view of Tower Bridge was very pleasant.
Going to the Shard first and then having lunch after was very good. Was concerned that would be a little bit late for lunch because the instructions to get to the restaurant weren't quite as good as they could be - but we made it and all was ok! Lunch was very nice - would recommend the package anytime
The day was just perfect. The organization at the Shard was well polished in their professionalism with no queuing and excellent and friendly staff. The staff at Strada also ensured we had an upstairs riverside table and offered a high level of service. The added bonus was watching the cannons go off at the Tower of London and The Red Arrows fly past, for the trooping of the colour from our excellent table. Would definitely recommend !!!
Excellet gift, the view is great and the lunch is in a beautiful location with great views and food.
The organisation was great. We had a marvellous experience
good food at strada with an excellent view shard great views on a great day
The lunch at Strada was most acceptable, and we had a great table overlooking Tower Bridge.. Following a leisurely lunch it was a 5 minute walk to the Shard. It was a very slick operation, and the speed of the lifts was unbelievable. Within minutes we were at the top of the Shard and the view was incredible. Highly recommended, an experience to savour and remember.
we had a very nice lunch at the Strada restaurant with great view of the river and with excellent service.after lunch we then went to the shard amazing view, just a great day out
A very worthwhile visit, nice to see my home Town looking so good. A big thank you to all of the staff, Polite, Helpful and very Friendly. Will make a revisit to venue, view another season. Nice One.
The voucher was a gift from the children, we had a meal at The Strada Restaurant which was absolutely delicicious then we went to The Shard. All the staff at both venues were really friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The views were amazing and we were not hurried either. The whole experience was definately a day to remember.
