Un-Bull-ievable Views From The Shard This Easter Holiday

Have you ever been up The Shard? Truth is, that I hadn't. Even though it is an unmissable 800ft tall building right next to London Bridge station, we had never found the time to go up to the top. That was until this Easter holiday when we were invited along to see the un- BULL- eivable views from the top. The thing that made the Easter visit so special was that that they have teamed up with 'Ferdinand' the friendliest bull in town to create some Easter fun and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.




The entertainment is to celebrate the release of 'Ferdinand' on DVD and Blu Ray on 16th April and on digital download from 10th April. The film tells the story of Ferdinand, a bull with a huge heart, but he is mistaken as a dangerous beast and removed from everyone that he loves and as he plans to return home, he gathers a band of misfits to join him on an adventure of a lifetime. Ferdinand is voiced by John Cena but you will also find the voice talents of David Tennant, Kate Mckinnon and Sally Phillips as well as many more cast members to make the film laugha-BULL the whole time.



The Shard is open from 10am until 10pm at night so you can enjoy the morning views or the nightlife over London and with every family ticket sold for £64.95 you get a family goodie bag containing toys and goodies for the children as well as a chance to win another family trip to The Shard and you could even win a family holiday with every family ticket purchased.



The Shard lifts take you up 68 floors, where you will find a viewing floor, complete with a bar for those of you that want to make the experience special and enjoy a glass of champagne. Then as you walk up a further3 floors, you come to a viewing platform that is outside and can be very windy. Up here you will find the Virtual Reality (VR) area where you can test your nerve and fear of heights on the Vertigo game. You pop on the VR headset and walk along a plank of wood but all you can see is that you're 800 ft above the ground balancing on the infrastructure of the building. It is enough to make anyone's heart race. You can also take the VR slide, that glides you over London as The Shard becomes a helter-skelter. These are only for adults and children over12 years old. Tilly was so disappointed that she couldn't do it. They are available to participate in for the cost of £10 - but do them.


The Ferdinand visit also includes free face painting, free fiesta dance lessons for the kids and a quiz sheet, where the children have to find London landmarks in the 40-mile view that you get from the top of The Shard. The nearest tube and train station is London Bridge and its there as you leave the station. So what are you all waiting for?
