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 😁

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.

The Shard and Afternoon Tea Cruise - Fantastic !!
Dringer, 18/01/2016 (Family with young children)
We have recently returned from London and whilst there I booked The View from the Shard and Afternoon Tea on City Cruises. It was my husbands 40th so a special occasion, we had our 4 and 12 year old children with us. We all thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. I was quite skeptical as we did have the children with us but they loved it. The view from the shard was amazing, everyone was really helpful and extremely friends. A must visit whilst in London !. Afternoon tea was fantastic, the food was great, plenty for all for of us (in fact, we left some which is very unusual for us) the surrounding views were great. It was extremely good value for money and very well organised. I would most definitely recommend this to anyone, singles, couples and families. In fact we are looking at doing this again for my in-laws. It was fantastic, thank you !

First time I have booked with Discount London and found the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable! Absolutely loved my day out and will be recommending to all my friends! Will also be using them for all future bookings too.

Super day out
Big daddy, 09/11/2015 (Mature Adults)
We wondered what the view from The Shard would be like given the picture in the paper of the top of it through mist only a couple of days before. It turned out to be excellent. Not only the view but we got chatting to one of the staff members who was most helpful - to the point of mentioning not to miss the "loo with a view" before leaving the building. We also had the trip along the Thames with afternoon tea and, if anything, I enjoyed that more. Tea without ending (of the liquid variety) and a good choice and amount of sandwiches, then cream and jam scones to be enjoyed whilst hearing details of the view and in the comfort of a heated boat. A very pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

Fantastic day out the shard was amazing and the cruise was awesome. Afternoon tea was just lovely, escorted to your table, quickly served and a good selection of sandwiches. Cream tea was lovely would recommend people to try this.

Great day out.

From start to finish the day was lovely. We were celebrating two birthdays & it was a really nice way to do this. The afternoon tea cruise was very enjoyable & the staff were all so attentive, we couldn't have asked for more, even the weather was glorious. We arrived early at the Shard but were allowed to go in, oh my god what a view!! We even worked out where we lived in the far distance, we will be going back again when at dusk to see it all in a different light. I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like a day out & booking it on line is so easy & it works out cheaper! What more could you want.

Says what it is clearly

Thoroughly enjoyed it all.

The View from The Shard & City Cruises Afternoon Tea
Sue B, 26/06/2015 (Mature Adults)
We were fortunate the weather was beautiful. The views from The Shard were breath taking followed by a most enjoyable City Cruises Afternoon Tea. The staff at both venues were exceptional adding to the enjoyment of both experiences. Particularly the commentary by the Captain on the cruise along the River Thames. It has been some 35 years since I last experienced a cruise along the River Thames and the surrounding area has changed so much. We had a wonderful day and we would highly recommend this package.
