View from The Shard & Thames Rockets Tickets

The View from The Shard
This is one of our ultimate sightseeing packages – save 17% with offers on tickets for View from The Shard & Thames Rockets. Experience The Shard - Western Europe’s tallest skyscraper from a dizzy height, then come crashing back down to earth on a Thames Rockets Break the Barrier experience – a fast and furious speedboat ride on the Thames!

Boarding at London City Pier in the shadow of the iconic Tower Bridge, you set sail to a rousing “Best of British” soundtrack from iconic music to the unmistakable voices of Winston Churchill, Peggy Mitchell, Del Boy, and many more.

Before you know it, we let rip! Pushing speeds of up to 30 knots (35mph!) the 12 metre long aero-dynamically designed fiberglass ‘Thames Rocket’ will twist and turn its way east flashing past Canary Wharf, the Cutty Sark, Greenwich and the O2 arena. There’s a chance to catch your breath as the vessel cruises through the marvel that is the Thames Barrier, before ‘Pulling G’ and firing up the 630hp engines to blast you home.

There is plenty more music and memories along the way and with an expert Skipper and award winning guide on hand to keep you entertained, this is a jam packed 40 minutes that’ll leave you wanting to turn round and do it all again!

Both experiences were great but times were changed the day before which meant we didn't get to go up the shard at our preferred time. Amazing boat ride, not at the time we specified, but thrilling, fast and educational. Cold though as we were given a late time. Would have loved to do this at the times we wanted but good value and good fun package.

The View from The Shard was stunning. The Shard office doesn't open until 10 so just wait outside the big gates at the bottom. Thames Rockets were fantastic, excellent staff (2 x Mikes). Great to see the Thames barrier. We would definitely do this trip again.

Incredible views from the Shard and an exhilarating RIB ride on the Thames!
Mal & Maria, 21/06/2016 (Young Adults)
London is an amazing city, to see it from so high with 360 degree views was unbelievable. Beautiful interior décor with plants and flowers, the most charming and amazing experience was enjoyed by us both. we even got to witness Tower Bridge in its operational and stunning best. We then boarded the Thames Rocket One RIB for an amazing 45 minutes on the water. High speed excitement and views of East London at its finest, led in total safety by Skipper Mike and `Little` Mike, we were given an educational treat from Tower Bridge to the Thames Barrier. Highly recommend these two attractions.

Thank you for being so helpful in helping me book this for my son and his partner they had a great day and a fantastic experience.

Great ride
Ant, 29/03/2016 (Mature Adults)
Break the barrier was great fun and the crew were excellent and informative. Despite the inclement weather our experience, spirit nor clothes were dampened! Great way to see the eastern reaches of the Thames. The Shard was simple to access with good information and break taking views.

The Barrier London Rib Experience
Martin, 18/01/2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our ride on the fast boat. Our skipper Andy was excellent. And the guide who's name I have forgotten was brilliant, witty and informative. I will recommend this ride to others. Thanks Martin Welch

Fabulous day!!!

Wow!! Hold on to your hats!! Break the Barrier was truly breathtaking. The crew were exemplary; warm, welcoming & witty. Little Mike being the very informative & excellent tour guide & the speedboat driven by the 'Stig Of The Thames'- Nick. Wonderful way to see the Thames & thrills along the way. View from The Shard - after our earlier exploits, this was an altogether calmer experience. The building itself is phenomenal - its all polished chrome & glass, very smooth.... The queuing is fast & after 2 elevators to the 69th floor prepare to have your breath taken away..... For more thrills ascend another staircase to the 'open deck' & enjoy a beer, champagne, or even something stronger to counteract that 'wobbly leg' feeling!! Jaw dropping sights across 360 degrees of London albeit a little chilly - but what do you expect....amazing experiences, truly unforgettable!! Well done to all - great staff & well looked after!!
