London As I See It
We are pleased to present – London As I See It. Join leading thinkers from the world of architecture and design as they imagine a new future for London on the evening of 17th September, with the first of our fascinating commissioned talks in association with ICON Magazine.
Take in the sweeping panoramic views from the top of Western Europe’s tallest building whilst discussing architecture, buildings and how the invention of the passenger lift transformed the landscape of our cities. The event is chaired by architect and broadcaster Angela Brady and Key Speakers will take questions on the night.
Sleepover at The View from The Shard
Sleepover at The View from The Shard for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get to know someone new at the top of one of the World’s most iconic buildings.
This is a unique chance to spend the night, and then see dawn break over one of the greatest cities in the world. All from Europe’s highest building.
Armed with sleeping bags (sleeping mats are provided) as the city lights dim and the stars begin to shine, Guest's will get a tour of the night sky from the Royal Observatory who are situating a powerful telescope on the open-air viewing gallery, plus be able to enjoy an array of talks, acoustic performances, and even a midnight feast. There will also be a pop up cash bar open on floor 69 for guests to enjoy.
The Glam Camping Company will pitch a limited number of VIP Bell Tents on the highest publicly accessible floor of the building, exposed to the elements*, providing a unique chance to sleep literally at top of the Shard. Alternatively sleeping spaces around the 360 degree Level 69 indoor viewing gallery will provide a little more shelter.
Renowned presenters and literati will also be providing readings of acclaimed writers and poets in Toby Brothers’ Literary Salon on themes of sleep and darkness. The sleepover comes to a close early morning. Daters will be roused from their sleeping bags to enjoy a view of the sun rising over London, whilst enjoying to hot drinks and breakfast.
Should you wish to enjoy the experience but go home to the comfort of your own bed then evening only tickets are available.
