If seeing London from 800 feet up wasn’t breathtaking enough already, you can now get an extra adrenaline kick at The View from The Shard, thanks to the UK’s highest virtual reality experience. Hit speeds of up to 100mph on The Slide as you zoom through London’s skyline on an immense helter skelter, and test your never on Vertigo, as The Shard crumbles away from below your feet, leaving you balancing precariously. Thrilling stuff.

Tiller Flat Folk Club

By day, the full-sized recreation of Francis Drake’s galleon the Golden Hinde is a historical attraction. By night once a month, it’s also a cosy club for a hip crowd who appreciate live new-acoustic music. Sit up on deck under fairy lights, looking across the Thames to an unbroken view of the 21st-century City, then pick your way down the tiny old ship stairways to the little bar and intimate performance space below deck. A unique experience.
