An Easter Egg Hunt at the top of The Shard

The Easter holidays mean more than two weeks off school. It means finding fun outings for one’s child(ren). I mean, there are only so many times you can go to the playground. But if you’re in London or planning a visit this Easter, you should think about visiting The Shard for a fun, and different, Easter Egg Hunt.

Did you know that The Shard is the tallest building in the UK, as well as Western Europe? You take two lifts/elevators and some stairs to get to the 72nd floor, and then are rewarded with some seriously cool views. With the added bonus of an Easter Egg Hunt, it makes looking at the sites more fun.

Rather than looking for small Easter Eggs, there were giant ones placed around London. We managed to find them all, but there were two bonus eggs we were unable to discover. There were eggs on MBNA Thames Clipper boats and on tour buses. But we had great fun trying to spot them.

To make it more of a day, try and get a reservation at the Aqua Shard restaurant for a lovely, and not exorbitant, brunch before or after your visit. Otherwise, there are plenty of family-friendly restaurants in the area (Tooley Street will give you stunning views of the Thames and Tower Bridge, and Borough Market will give you loads of choices for food stalls).

If you plan to visit The Shard, book your tickets ahead for a better price and quicker entry (you can get tickets for a family of four for £50). There are places to buy ice cream, sweets and beverages at the top (I saw loads of people enjoying Champagne), so there will be treats for everyone.


We were invited to visit The Shard for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
