LittleBird - tons of ideas for family days out

Ryland, Rob and I were invited to visit The View From The Shard, one of LittleBird’s partners. I love to get a bird’s eye view of a city – whether that’s from the CN Tower in Toronto, the Top of the Rock in New York or Sunshine 60 in Tokyo. If the weather’s good it can be hours of entertainment, particularly when you have a mix of old buildings, new skyscrapers – and plenty of football stadiums to spot!

The View From The Shard

To get to the viewing platforms, you’re whizzed up to the top of The Shard in two fast lifts – one to take you to Level 33, and then switching to a second one up to Level 68.

The View From The Shard

Here there is access to interactive Tell: scopes where you can move the scope to zoom in live – but also choose to see views of London’s Medieval, Tudor, Stuart and 19th century past.

The View From The Shard

Climb up three levels to experience the open air Skydeck on Level 72, which exposes you to the elements and sounds of the city below. New to this level are two new Virtual Reality experiences (you’ll have to buy a ticket for these) – test your balance on ‘Vertigo’ or enjoy the thrill of ‘The Slide’ if you dare!

The View From The Shard

What I like about The View From The Shard is that they don’t allow too many people in at once – and there’s no limit to the time you can spend up there. It’s a unique spot to have a beer or a glass of fizz while your children enjoy the view!

Oh, and before you leave – even if you don’t need to go, you really should check out the ultimate loo with a view…
