Shard launches half term Paddington campaign

The View from The Shard is teaming up with new film Paddington 2 this October half term by offering two free child tickets for every adult ticket sold as part of their Kids Go Free offer.

Families can expect treats inspired by the popular bear’s favourite preserve, marmalade, including a gluten free orange and polenta cake and a marmalade sandwich-inspired mocktail.

Children can take part in a Paddington-inspired treasure hunt searching for missing marmalade sandwiches, and be in with a chance to win a family ticket to the Paddington 2 world premiere on November 5.

On reaching the viewing platform, guests will be welcomed by a special Paddington statue from the 2014 Paddington trail, which actor Hugh Bonneville designed himself.

While the kids entertain themselves on the virtual reality experiences, parents can enjoy a drink from London’s highest champagne bar as the sun sets over the city’s skyline with views of up to 40 miles.
