Sky-High Dining at The Shard


Towering above London Bridge, The Shard, one of London’s newest and most iconic buildings, is a great spot for a special occasion, a romantic date, or a really fun day out. Located high on the 31st floor, aqua shard offers an unbeatable 360-degree panoramic view of the city, and an unmatched fine-dining experience.

The three-story bar and restaurant showcases a range of contemporary dishes, and prides itself on the exquisitely constructed menu featuring some of the very best British ingredients. No matter when you visit, there are options for all taste buds and appetites. If you’re an early bird, breakfast includes a selection of home-made breads, Glastonbury butter, and aqua shard jams. If you’re feeling more traditional, try the divine English breakfast. But if you’d fancy a more decadent plate, go for the lobster Benedict, which will melt in your mouth with flavour. Arrive later in the day, order à la carte or enjoy a fashionable afternoon tea. Available during the week, aqua shard also offers a special lunch menu. The three-course meal is a fantastic and delectable option, and you can choose from dishes like veal carpaccio and confit Tidenham duck leg. For dessert, you’ll feel naughty ordering the tasty caramelized pear and almond tart.

Pair your meal with a delicious cocktail from the bar, selecting from aqua shard signatures such as The City Jungle, or complement your sky-high view with a Come Fly With Me. Whilst at the bar, you can spot the other London landmarks like Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral, and The Gherkin. As you peer down on London, the trains below look like toys, coming in and out of the stations. The view from The Shard is exquisite, and grabbing a window seat at aqua shard is an incredible way to while away an afternoon, watching the busy Capital go about its business.
