London’s Highest Garden
This summer come and enjoy London’s highest summer garden space 800ft (244m) above the city at The View from The Shard.
Fearne Cotton cut the ribbon in a grand opening ceremony that celebrated the Great British Summertime with a performance from London’s own Blackheath Morris Men on Thursday, 11 June.
The skydeck at the top of Western Europe’s tallest building has been transformed with over 2,000 plants and flowers. Taking months to prepare and over 350 man-hours to fully install, national floral favourites including poppies, fox gloves, lavender, marigolds and birch trees have been planted in over 10,000 litres of soil, set amongst a further 750 metres of decorative foliage.
Continuing the quintessentially British experience on offer, guests can also book a Sky-High Tea picnic from Fortnum & Mason with their visit from 23 June, or enjoy a gin-and-tonic flavoured ice-cream whilst taking in the panoramic views for up to 40 miles.
The summer garden installation at The View from The Shard will be on display until September.
