Kids Go Free At The Shard

Life for me is all about experiences and filling the children’s heads with as many memories as I can.

So today I knew soaring to 800ft to take in the breathtaking sights of London from The Shard was going to be something to remember, and it didn’t disappoint.

They are offering a fantastic offer this half term 15-21 Febuary 2016 which allows two children to go free with one paying adult.  It is a huge saving and one not to be missed.

Upon arrival we were shown through to the lift and the whole experience started from here.  Moving at an ear popping speed to level 69 the children were completely taken back by the moving images on the roof of the lift and were in silence until we reached the top.
We arrived at the viewing platform where the children spent ages trying to spot some of the 200 landmarks that were shown on the interactive, touchscreen telescopes.


The younger two were happy to take in the sights of London and were amazed to see the tiny trains and cars below, but were especially taken back by spotting the very brave window cleaner!


From here you can make your way even further up to Level 72 the open air gallery where you truly get a sense of how high you are and can take in the beautiful shards of glass that create the spire at the top of the building.

I was a little apprehensive as to whether the children’s attention spans would waver but from 2-13 they were all thrilled to be there are really soaked up every moment of it.

The trip even managed to put a smile on my stroppy teenagers face which is no mean feat! 


If you are looking for something different from the norm to do with the children this half term you really need to take up this offer as I know it will not disappoint.


We were given tickets for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
