London’s Highest Summer Garden
2 June - 18 September 2016
This summer, visit The View from The Shard and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the capital from London’s highest summer garden.
For a limited time, the open-air Skydeck on Level 72 will be transformed into an immersive garden featuring thousands of brilliant blooms in celebration of The Year of The English Garden. Leave the city behind and ascend 800ft to the quintessential English garden to see all of London at once.
The garden will highlight the importance of UK native wild flowers with Grow Wild, the UK’s biggest-ever wild flower campaign, who have taken over a corner of the attraction with planters filled with native, pollinator-friendly wild flowers and plants. At the end of summer, these planters will be donated to local Grow Wild community projects around London.
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 or enjoy a Jude’s ice-cream in a variety of delicious flavours.
The Summer Garden experience is included in all standard entry tickets. Visit www.growwilduk.com to register for a free packet of native wild flower seeds.
£40, including a goody bag.
