Exclusive family fun

Advance booking is mandatory

Blue Light Card Family Fun Events at The View from The Shard 

These unique events at The View from The Shard are an exclusive opportunity for Blue Light Card families to enjoy the best views of London from the top of the highest and most iconic building in our capital city.

From the excitement of arriving at The Shard, the exhilaration of the high-speed lifts that send guests 244 metres up at 4m per second and that first glimpse of the breath-taking views as you arrive at the top of the building, this will be a day to remember for all the family.

Once at the top of The Shard, take in the sights and sounds of the city below from our open-air rooftop on level 72 and access the indoor viewing galleries on levels 68 and 69 exclusively before we open to the general public.  All tickets include unlimited complimentary tea, coffee and juice as well as family fun activities including face painting, balloon modelling and the chance to win prizes.

This is a great opportunity for you to visit one of London’s most popular visitor attractions and enjoy a relaxed and fun family friendly event exclusive to Blue Light Card holders.
