Share a breathtaking experience at The Shard with your Valentine

Posted: 07.02.16

Pressure is mounting as Valentine’s Day is approaching and brains are being racked for innovative and romantic ideas to woo your love. If you’re lucky enough to be in London, fortunately, the capital is a melting pot of wonderful, quirky or timeless experiences to share with your hottie. But if you want to make this Valentine’s a really special one for your loved one, there is one such wonder in the city that is guaranteed to do just that. The View from The Shard offers a unique spectacle like no other. The imposing, yet sleek glass structure has become iconic in the city, so it’s no wonder it is one of the most popular landmarks for tourists and Londoner’s alike.

To get a real flavour of what London is all about, the scene is set as you begin your journey to the top, viewing a gallery exposing all of the capital’s infamous figures, from royalty to politicians and celebrities. Get your pic taken before you head on up, where the backdrop of the city’s views are behind you. You will feel like you’re journeying in the magical Willy Wonka’s glass elevator, as the super swift lift transports you from level one to 68 in an incredible 60 seconds. But the real magic begins as you get to the first viewing gallery at level 69, when the first glimpses of this pulsating city are witnessed, where you will feel its every heartbeat as its happening. Much like Nicholas Cage in The City Of Angels, you will feel like the keeper of this hub and its people.

As you travel up closer to the heavens at level 72, the 360 degree orgasmic views of London’s cosmopolitan skyline, will definitely take your darling’s breath away. See all your favourite landmarks like never before including The London Eye, St Pauls Cathedral, Big Ben, The Gherkin, Buckingham Palace and many more. At 800ft, you will be soaring at the highest vantage point in the EU, in the open air. You and the love of your life can gaze up at the literal shards of the top of the building, as well as the stars, before gazing into eachother’s eyes, between a glass of bubbly which is also conveniently served. A popular choice for proposals, it doesn’t get more romantic than this and if the two of you really get carried away in the moment, you might end up descending back down to earth with a ring on your finger…
