The Shard towers over London and with an impressive 95 storeys, it's the tallest building in the EU. This experience combines the truly breathtaking view from the top of this stylish building with a traditionally English afternoon tea. Upon arrival at The Shard, be transported from street level a whopping 800 feet skyward to survey the 360 degree view that spans an incredible 40 miles over the capital city. Back on ground level, a short walk from The Shard, visit the Hilton Tower Bridge for a spot of afternoon tea. Enjoy a spread of finger sandwiches with fillings such as smoked salmon, chorizo and houmous, delicate cakes and pastries, raisin scones with clotted cream and jam and a pot of speciality tea. The perfect end to a wonderful afternoon.

The view from the shard was amazing, definitely worth a visit. The whole thing was so well organised and staff very helpful and knowledgable. We stayed up there for an hour but could have stayed longer. Afterwards we went for afternoon tea at the Hilton Tower Bridge. An extensive choice of tea with instructions on brewing time for the perfect cuppa. The food was lovely with sandwiches, fruit and fancy cakes - yummy! A very lovely day and a fab treat.
