Garden with a top view
The View from The Shard will become a vibrant oasis of thousands of blooms to celebrate The Year of the English Garden from 2nd June to 18th September. The stunning garden will provide an unusual haven for visitors to enjoy 800ft above London. Even better is the project’s aim to highlight the huge importance of UK wild flowers in pollination and elevating bee populations. Therefore, a wildlife friendly area will be home to native, pollinator-friendly, wild flowers and plants.
As well as admiring some of the country's most captivating British plants, visitors will be able to purchase a cocktail from a green-fingered inspired drinks menu at the pop-up bar on the Level 72 Skydeck. Of course, the views over the capital will be awesome. Artwork by award winning artist Rachel Gadsden, entitled the power of flowers, will also be on display by Grow Wild for guests to view throughout the summer season.
At almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in the capital, The View from the Shard is without doubt the tallest building in Western Europe. It offers unparalleled 360-degree views for up to 40 miles. Visitors will leave the city behind as they ascend to the 72nd floor of The Shard to experience a breath-taking homage to the perfect English garden.
For visitors keen to immerse themselves in further garden activities at the Shard, a series of events will be held to celebrate The Year of the Garden, and British Summertime, at the same garden space throughout the summer months.
Tickets are priced from £25.95 per adult/£19.95 per child. To book, please telephone 0844 499 7111.
Please note that visitors can experience the summer garden installation with standard entry to The View from The Shard until 4th September.
