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!

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!

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 to all my family and friends. Thanks for a great service!

Excellent day

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

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!

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.

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!

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!
