NEW! GROUP TOUR – Up, Up and Away in London
Available on Sundays during 2019
View from The Shard, Thames Sightseeing Tour
We go up, up and away with a trip which takes you soaring up to London’s highest viewing point and sailing to its furthest reaches. Take in The View from The Shard with a glass of champagne and a sight-seeing boat tour to the Thames Barrier.
Sunday night stays in 2019 available. Other dates and durations are available.
The View from the Shard.
The View from The Shard is Europe’s highest viewing platform standing at 310 meters high, with unrivalled 360 degree panoramic views. Take in over 40 miles of the London skyline whilst enjoying a glass of champagne in what is known as London’s highest champagne experience. You will be top of the pops! If heights are your thing why not also visit The London Eye and take a 30 minute trip on the world’s largest observation wheel (available as an optional extra). In the evening spend some free time exploring the capital before retiring to the hotel.
Sightseeing Boat Tour and home.
The Thames River Services operates sightseeing tours to the Thames Barrier. Starting at Westminster Pier you will cruise down to Greenwich before sailing through the Thames Barrier. Opened in 1984 by the Queen, the Thames Barrier is London’s principal defence against flooding and is truly a sight to behold. Your vessel will be equipped with licensed bars, multi-lingual commentary system and offers panoramic views of London’s historical sites.
