Review by Deise
A very original birthday gift, we had a fantastic day!
22 August 2017
See London from on high with 360-degree skyline vistas, before dining on three courses of authentic American cuisine surrounded by rock ‘n’ roll history with The View from The Shard and Hard Rock Cafe Dining Experience for two.
The View from The Shard has quickly established itself as one of London’s must see attractions. From the amazing viewing platform 800ft above you can look out for up to 40 miles in every direction, picking out the capital’s most iconic landmarks– there’s no better way to see all of London, all at once.
Enjoy queue-jump entry before taking your seats for a tasty three-course meal from a set menu at the one and only Hard Rock Cafe, Old Park Lane. You’ll also have access to The Vault – home to the Cafe’s most iconic and valuable memorabilia, you’ll see the likes of handwritten John Lennon lyrics, Madonna’s famous bustier and many other unique items.
On arrival for at The View from The Shard, you and your guest will make your way up to the viewing platform all the way up on level 72. There’s no time limit to your experience, so once you’re up there, you can stay and soak in the sights for as long as you please.
On arrival at the Hard Rock Cafe, Old Park Lane, you will gain queue jump entry to be greeted by the host who will show you to your table as soon as one is available. Your table needs to be pre-booked, please note that the restaurant does get extremely busy during weekends and summer months.
You will be handed your three-course set menu and offered a bottomless soft drink such as Pepsi or 7-up, tea or coffee. Your meal will be served to you by the friendly waiting staff and once you are finished you may enjoy the included tour of The Vault found just across the road, beneath Hard Rock Cafe London’s Rock Shop. You may, if you wish, take this tour before your meal, but please note these tours run every 20 minutes and may be subject to change without prior notice.
