The View From The Shard

We are almost a week into Easter break and this s when we start counting down the days until school starts again! What are you doing with your children? Have you considered a trip up the Shard?

The View from the Shard is a fantastic attraction. You travel up 72 floors to the highest viewing point in London. Standing at 800ft above the city, the View from the Shard offers superb 360 panoramic views of the city. Where you can spot Landmarks such as the London Eye, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.

This half term, the view from the Shard has teamed up with the animated film Ferdinand to promote the release of Ferdinand on DVD on the 16th April. From 30th March to the 15th of April, the view from the Shard will be hosting a range of Ferdinand themed activities that are included in the price of a general admissions ticket. Families can take part in Ferdinand themed treasure hunt where children are encouraged to look for major landmarks and Ferdinand's friends and favourite flowers.

Each family that visits the Shard will also receive a Ferdinand themed gift bag containing bits and bots including masks, hats, a stationary set and small cuddly Ferdinand.

Me and my family went along this week to check it out and we really loved it. This view really was spectacular. I have been on the London Eye a few times and yet I was still amazed. I could see landmarks from the Shard that I could not see from the Eye and when I couldn't find Buckingham Palace, the staff were really helpful and pointed me in the right direction.

Tilly really loved the Ferdinand activities, she spent ages on the activity sheet which helped her discover different landmarks and really appreciate the view. She loved having her photo taken in the Ferdinand floral display which ensured she had a pretty picture with and the view of London in the Background.

My favourite was the virtual reality experiences. The first was 'Vertigo' in which it looked like I had to walk along a steel beam, hundreds of feet in the air help to build the Shard. This was truly terrifying and the adrenaline was pumping as if I was really there. The second experience was 'the Slide' where the headset and chair turned the Shard into a helter-skelter from which I could see all the London landmarks. I really loved it and now want one at home!

Overall, I really do recommend a trip up the Shard as it makes a fantastic family day out. It is easy to get to as it right next to London Bridge station. For more information check out their website here.
