Venue of the Week: The View from The Shard

Designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano, this week’s top venue stands at a height of 1,016ft (310m), and is officially the tallest building in the European Union. The iconic, landmark building has redefined the London skyline, so if you’re looking for a venue to impress it doesn’t get much better than this.


Event space The View from The Shard is situated at the top of The Shard, across floors 69 and the open air Level 72. The space is almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in London, offering your guests the chance to experience a cloudscape above the world.


Since its opening we have catered for a wide range of prestigious events high above the streets of London at this celebrated event space.


When the building celebrated its first birthday with a show-stopping celebration for specially invited guests and VIPs, our team were on hand to provide suitably high-end food, including a selection of London Kitchen miniatures, including Tuna Tataki with Grilled Asparagus, Lamb Tagine Slow Cooked in Honey, Almonds and Citrus Served in a Roasted Sweet Potato Cup with Sultanas, Thai Spiced Fish Cakes with Mango and Mooli Salsa  – and an extra special Lemon Posset Served in a Shot Glass with Lavender ‘Shard’.

Last September we joined forces with magician extraordinaire Dynamo, Laura Wright, Gaby Roslin and the Diamond Boys to celebrate 65 years of children’s charity Variety, and the birth of the Variety Patrons Campaign at the contemporary space. We served Roasted Peking Duck Pancakes, Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls, Goat’s Cheese and Pickled Beetroot on Cucumber and a Spicy Beef Salad with a Coriander, Palm sugar and Lime Dressing. The full story is here.


The View from The Shard can accommodate up to 400 guests for a standing reception across both levels. The venue offers an astonishing 360 degree, 64km (40mile) view over the city and beyond, alongside interactive, digital telescopes which bring the capital’s past, present and future to life.
