The View from The Shard with Lunch Cruise for Two

View the London skyline from The Shard then enjoy a delicious 2-course lunch on the Thames!

Enjoy a full day of sightseeing and delicious food with The View from The Shard and River Thames Lunch Cruise experience for two people. Whether you're giving as a gift or treating yourself, this is the perfect day to share with a loved one!

Situated next to London Bridge, The View from The Shard allows visitors to see as far as 40 miles into the distance from the highest observation deck in the UK - 800ft above ground level! From here you'll be able to see the sights of St Paul’s Cathedral, The Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London, Temple Church, amongst many more. Once you've enjoyed your view from up above, you can make your way down to the famous River Thames to indulge in a two course lunch aboard a river boat. Gliding past the landmarks and away from the hustle and bustle of London's busy streets, your lunch will include a main, dessert and tea or coffee served by the friendly waiters on board.

This combination of experience makes a wonderfully thoughtful gift for London locals and visitors alike, and is guaranteed to create memories to last a lifetime.

Snowy London

I had been on the same lunch cruise about 5 years earlier and I can say that the quality of the meal had improved in the intervening period and I'm sure the vessel had been re-modelled. Staff were friendly and helpful but they were hardly stressed as the cruise wasn't heavily booked. A trip up the Shard is a must as the view is stunning and when you go to the upper level it's good to feel the elements. I went when there was snow on the ground and although visibility wasn't brilliant this was more than compensated by the blanket of snow. Visited mid afternoon with few people around due to the weather. The lifts are silky smooth and ear popping is about the only sensation. A good trip.
