Exclusive Hire FAQs
Whenever we close the attraction and turn the space into a private events space there is normally some loss of ticket revenue and secondary spend that is incurred. This loss of revenue is what the hire fee is based on. As you can imagine each quote is fairly bespoke and is based on a range of different factors such as how long the venue will be closed, the month and even the day of the week can all make a difference on how the hire fee can differ.
In hiring The View you would access to our two viewing galleries, these being level 69 and level 72. Level 69 with its triple-height windows and 360-degree views is the perfect setting for an event. Level 72 is the highest private events space in the UK and as it is open to the elements makes for a fascinating and unique experience.
Included in the hire fee is the following:
• Discreet and professional security team
• Dedicated and knowledgeable Guest Ambassadors
• Exclusive hire of both level 69 and 72
• Use of unique washroom facilities on Level 68
• Housekeeping on site assisting with the event
• Dedicated event management team
• Complete branding opportunities on an array of digital screens on level 1
The View from The Shard holds a 24-hour hour license and so can be very flexible with your timings.
