The Height of Winter
23 November 2015 - 31 January 2016
This winter, experience the greatest view of London from inside our enchanting crystalline world at the top of The Shard.
Step into the glittering embrace of winter and be captivated by the magical creations of innovative British experience designers Bompas and Parr. Alongside perfumers, composers, psychologists and professors of visual culture they will transform the viewing gallery into the unmissable event of the season.
London's own summit, The Shard will be transformed into an enchanting, sensory winter experience. Theatrical ice crystals and frost will charm guests 800ft above the city on our open-air Level 72 Skydeck. Expect super-scaled crystals, gem-studded snow dunes, glowing crystal benches, a touch-responsive iridescent grotto and carolling plants, to further enhance the unique feeling of standing at the top of Western Europe’s tallest building.
Bompas and Parr have also created the following treats which will be available to purchase:
- Snow White Hot Chocolate
- Mulled Champagne
- Christmas Candy Floss
All guest visiting can enjoy the winter experience with a standard entry ticket to The View from The Shard.
