Take your lunch with a sightseeing twist and see London from the river and above the rooftops on The View from The Shard and Thames Lunch Cruise for Two.

The View from The Shard offers views of London that you won’t find anywhere else, sitting as it does 800ft above the city streets. On floors 68 and 69 you can try and find all of the capital’s famous spots with the help of The View’s smart telescopes and multimedia displays, looking out up to 40 miles in every direction. Just a few floors up the sights will stretch out before you as you’ll be on The View’s open-top viewing platform, exposed to the elements with the sounds of the city floating up towards you.

Your lunch will be served aboard a vessel cruising along the River Thames, where you can each enjoy a two-course set menu while looking out at London’s waterfront sights including the HMS Belfast, Golden Hinde and of course the ever-visible Shard.

What's Included?

  • Entry to The View from The Shard for Two
  • 1 hour 45 minute cruise along River Thames
  • Two-course lunch
  • Tea or coffee
  • Personalised voucher and message card
  • Cancellation indemnity

What happens on the day?

The View from The Shard
At 800ft above London, The View from The Shard is almost twice as high as any other vantage point in the city, so visitors will be able to experience one of the greatest cities in the world like never before. The View from The Shard has 360° views stretching out to 64km with multimedia displays and state of the art telescopes on hand to bring it all to life. On floors 68, 69 and 72, it is almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in London. Prepare to embark on a multi-sensory journey to 800ft above one of the greatest cities on earth. On arrival at Level 00, you will be drawn into the tapestry of London with glimpses of the city laid out before you. Travelling skyward in two high-speed ‘kaleidoscopic’ lifts, you’ll swiftly reach Level 68 - a cloudscape above the world. Then journey to Level 69 where the view is revealed and London opens out before you. Here, in the sky above London, you’ll experience an astonishing 360°, 64km view over the city and beyond where the past, present and future of London will be unfurled beneath you, brought to life in multimedia displays.
 For the best view in town, ascend to Level 72, at 800ft, the highest public level of The Shard. You’ll be exposed to the elements with sounds of the city from below you. Looking up, you’ll see the shards of glass that form the top of this skyscraper as they disappear upwards into the sky.

Thames Lunch Cruise
On arrival at Tower Pier, you and your guest will board your river boat at the previously arranged time and commence your 1 hour 45 minute cruise along the River Thames. During this time you will enjoy a two-course lunch from a set menu whilst taking in the sights of London.

Your delicious meal will be rounded off with a choice of tea or coffee. Then you and your guest may head up on to the deck for an even better view of the London riverside. Enjoy good company as you take in the great landmarks such as The Shard, the Golden Hinde reconstruction and Sir Francis Drake’s warship.

"Lovely adventure"

Had a lovely day the boat was wonderful and the food was really good,
Staff were brilliant.
The only one think that I would mention was the seating on the boat,
We had to share a table of four, Would have been nice to have had a table for two. Boat trip was lovely down the Thames. The Shard was an experience and the staff were amazing. Lovely day had by both
Would recommend this package.
