The View from The Shard with Afternoon Tea Cruise for Two

Experience The View from The Shard then indulge in an afternoon tea for two on the Thames!

Whether you're local Londoners or just visiting - why not see The City from two spectacular angles! The View from The Shard and Afternoon Tea Cruise combo is the perfect way to experience the capital and enjoy some delicious food. View London from new heights in the iconic The View from The Shard, 800ft up from London's busy streets, where you'll be able to see a stretch of 40 miles from 360 degrees. This magnificent view will stay with you for a lifetime, seeing the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral and many more from a bird's eye view. As well as a trip to The Shard, you'll also get to enjoy a peaceful, indulgent Afternoon Tea cruise on the River Thames. To accompany your tea (or coffee) you'll receive a glass of prosecco as well as an assortment of sandwiches, cakes and desserts, and of course the classic scones with cream and jam. 

This is an excellent way to spend the day in London, combining the view from the River Thames with a view from the clouds. Enjoy with family or friends for a day to remember!
