There’s also a weekly silent disco up there on Saturday nights and other events, such as Sky-High Yoga or film screenings. Previously The Shard has hosted a summer garden with over 2,000 plants and flowers and a Virtual Reality machine that simulated sliding down the side of the huge structure.
A night at the casino
London has over 20 land-based casinos, with all the popular games on offer across the various establishments. Many of them are frequently visited by celebrities and you will often find top footballers enjoying a night playing blackjack or roulette.
