Summer Opening Hours for The Shard
Fantastic Trips Mark Hammond, 07/05/2018 (Mature Adults)Booked this trip for our friends 40th birthday. Rory and Rich were fantastic host's and made the trip fun and enjoyable. I fully recommend this trip to anyone and give it a 5 star rating.
40th Celebration Smyth, 12/12/2017 (Young Adults)Excellent price for our celebrations, no problems
Shard and rocket Huh?, 20/11/2017 (Mature Adults)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.
Amazing!! Traby, 17/04/2017 (Family with teenagers)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.
Shard experience Debs, 20/06/2016 (Mature Adults)Great day, Shard was great, fantastic views. Had to rearrange rib experience but cant wait to do this. Will use Discount London again, very responsive
Great Day Paul, 30/03/2016 (Mature Adults)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.
Fabulous day!!! andy, 30/11/2015 (Mature Adults)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!!
Excellent day out Cherrypie, 23/11/2015 (Family with adult children)Great way to celebrate our youngest son's 18th birthday. The RIB trip was fantastic, well organised and great fun, don't expect too much history or information, this is about speed and an amazing view of London by boat. It was great to see the Thames Barrier up close. The soundtrack is well chosen and good fun, and our crew were very cheerful and helpful. The View From the Shard is as good as everyone says, you can see all of London. We went up in daylight and stayed as the sun went down so it was lovely seeing all the lights come on below. Memorable trip all round!
Exactly what it says! Leannie , 12/11/2015 (Mature Adults)My partner and I decided to pop up to London for a weekend and wanted to actually do something fun as apposed to walking around the normal tourist attractions! We booked onto the 1400 Rib ride, and although it was later than advertised (due to an engine problem on the ride before ours) the experience was brilliant! The two tour guys were fab - funny yet knowledgeable of all the sights.
Our visit up The Shard was phenomenal. We booked to go at 1600, so got to see the city during daylight and also nighttime. Watching the sunset up so high was truly magical!
I would recommend both these events and discount-London.com to all my family and friends.
Thanks for a great service!
Excellent day mary, 19/10/2015 (Mature Adults)Did the view from The Shard which was fantastic. Also did the speedboat out to the Thames Barrier and back to St Katherine's Pier which was great fun. I'd bought the Highest and Fastest Voucher as a gift to my husband, would highly recommend.
Great fun Marty, 30/09/2015 What a wonderful experience this was. Great fun, great excitement and perfect timing to see Tower Bridge opening just as we returned to the quay. James and Ian were wonderful hosts and the whole event was superb. Well done!
Discount London Gift Voucher Warren, Linda, Fred & Jan., 07/09/2015 (Senior Adults)My husband was given the gift voucher as a birthday present and we were very impressed with the whole experience from the help and advice we received while booking, to the friendly crew on 'Break the Barrier' who helped to make it such a great birthday.
View from the Shard and Rib Boat experience. Boudicca, 06/09/2015 (Family with young children)The Shard has an incredible view, slightly nerve-racking but once up high it was phenomenal. Very well run and refreshments available on different levels.
The Rib boat was GREAT. We had Matt and Paul as our crew and they were good fun,careful of our safety and very good at providing a very fun trip. Speeding down the Thames like the clappers was amazing. Can definitely recommend both The Shard and the Rib Boat.
The View from The Shard & Break The Barrier Jasmin, 30/08/2015 (Senior Adults)Excellent day out. Very easy to book and pay. Good value for money London treat.
Enjoyable Day out Baz, 10/08/2015 (Mature Adults)Positives- whole booking process very good, well informed when my initial booking had to be changed. Shard experience was good, rib experience was brilliant fun , a great day and not a bad price
Negatives - Customers should be made aware that there is no ticket office at the rib experience with no apparent signage either, when the ribs are out there is no indication of where to wait.
Great adventure along the Thames! Bev, 06/07/2015 (Young Adults)The RIB boat adventure was definitely the highlight of our weekend on London!
Was great to see the "other side" of the Thames & fantastic sites- great soundtrack too!
Shard/Break the Barrier Andy, 29/06/2015 (Mature Adults)Great experience! The Shard experience is a slick and professional operation. Thanks to Andy and James for a great white-knuckle ride on the RIB, good interaction from the on board team greatly enhanced the ride. Highly recommended!
