Hey! The View from the Shard celebrates its first birthday today. And there are no fewer than three ways to mark the anniversary of London’s highest look-out point.
First of all, they’ll let you visit for free today if it’s your birthday as well! Just take along a passport or driving licence with your date of birth on it.
Secondly, we’re giving a way a pair of tickets to their VIP Birthday Party on Tuesday Feb 4. Sponsored by Lanson and Asahi, the event will include performances by Mutya Keisha Siobhan and DJ Rob da Bank, canapés from The London Kitchen and a birthday cake specially designed by ‘The Great British Bake Off’ winner Frances Quinn. Pop your name into the hat here.
Thirdly, we’re exclusively selling tickets to a series of silent discos happening at The View from the Shard. Gaze over London and lose yourself to the music of your choice as the evening’s three DJs play three different sets simultaneously. Get ‘em here.
Of course, you can always have a cocktail at the Atrium Bar of Aqua Shard beforehand:
Dinner at Hutong…
Or Oblix instead:
Before you take in the top floor view:
Anyway, happy birthday Shard!
