Was good for kids Ash, 16/04/2018 (Family with young children)My two children and myself where on this cruise during the Easter school holidays, the kids had fun as they where able to eat plenty of treats like cakes, also as my children do not drink tea, they where offered hot chocolate which was nice, as the weather was a little cloudy at the time.
My only suggestion would be that they offer a scone without raisins inside, as one of my daughters and myself included had to pick them all out, which was a bit messy for us, maybe have one raisin and one plain?
Other than that we enjoyed looking at the views(there aren't any large tables next to the window, so groups of 3+ will be in the middle) and also liked that there was some brief history given over the speaker.
You can also spend some time on the upper deck outside so you can have better views and opportunities for photos.
Boat was modern and clean and the staff where very friendly and attentive.
Price was reasonable too, would book again.
Perfect Afternoon Tea Karen, 19/02/2018 Excellent value lovely afternoon tea would have been perfect if it had included a glass of fizz either in the Shard or with the afternoon tea otherwise lovely day
Shard Lesley, 01/12/2017 The Shard was lovely we had a amazing time
Amazing Experience Korine, 23/10/2017 (Mature Adults)Booked the afternoon tea and View from The Shard for my partners birthday & it was such a brilliant day! Booking was easy, the whole process was so simple and straight forward and every thing went even better than I expected. The service on the cruise was spot on, staff were friendly and helpful and the food was lovely, the shard was a little busier than expected but other than that it was an amazing experience!!! Definitely feel as though I got so much value for money! Will book future events again using Discount London 😁
Amazing Ibz, 23/10/2017 (Young Adults)Really enjoyed the boat cruise with afternoon tea. Delicious treats.
Perfect way to have an afternoon tea on Thames Ankur, 17/10/2017 (Family with young children)We had a wonderful time with City Cruises afternoon tea cruise. The staff is very friendly and they gladly changed our seat to accommodate the baby pram which I forgot to specify when booking. Booking the cruise online via Discount London was a breeze. Overall very satisfied with the quality of food, service and value for money.
Shard and Browns 52not60, 18/09/2017 (Senior Adults)Superb visit to the Shard. Brilliant views of London and splendid cocktails. Had a wait at Browns but that was for freshly baked scones. Perfect end to a grand day.
Top View dad, 08/08/2017 (Mature Adults)View from The Shard experience was excellent; make sure to visit the 72nd floor, why is partly open to the elements - very refreshing on a hot day! The afternoon tea could be improved by a better sound system on the boat; the sound was of such poor quality it was difficult to make out the speech, so the description and history being told was lost.
Great London Experience For The Family the simpsons, 26/07/2017 (Family with young children)Had a wonderful time up the View from The Shard- Spectacular Experience! Very impressed by the helpful ,attentive staff at the Shard. Tea at Browns was very pleasant - although we didn't leave enough time between the Shard and Tea at Browns, Butlers wharf. Advise having a two hour gap between each booking to really relax, enjoy and walk between the two experiences!
Wonderful JLM, 21/07/2017 (Mature Adults)An excellent day at both venues. Arrived early at both events but no trouble. Afternoon tea was great value, very attentive waiter. Free re-fills!
