The Shard Tickets & Thames Lunch Cruise - An immersive, premium sightseeing experience

The Shard

This unique encounter gives you the opportunity to experience the whole of London like never before with tickets to The Shard & Glass Room Lunch Cruise.

See London like never before from an incredible 800 feet above the ground. The View from The Shard provides unrivalled vistas stretching for forty miles in all directions. Step out of the Shard's impressive sheer glass facade onto the viewing platform to experience this colossal building in all it's glory where nothing stands between you and the London skyline. Since opening in 2012 the Shard has quickly become one of London's premier landmarks and is a simply unmissable attraction. 

The Bateaux London Glass Room lunch cruise is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of London life. Combine fine food and spectacular river views and many famous river landmarks such as Tower Bridge and Shakespeare's Globe (tide depending) with a one and a half hour leisurely cruise. The package includes a three course set menu followed by freshly brewed coffee.

Great Morning in London
suerb, 10/11/2014 (Mature Adults)
We went to the Shard viewing platform, floor 68, at 10.00 am and found some great views including the Tower of London with the ring of Poppies, fantastic. Afterwards we made our way to the Embankment Pier where we caught the Symphony for a fabulous lunch cruise, great meal with great company while passing all the sights of London, still plenty of time for shopping. What a fantastic day.

Would definitely recommend

I chose this trip for my partners 30th birthday. I looked around at other companies and most were a view from the shard and then dinner / afternoon tea miles away somewhere else. When I saw a riverboat lunch and a trip up the shard I thought the price was good so went for it. All I can say is what an amazing day. The trip on the boat was amazing, such lovely surroundings, staff were so polite and friendly. Lunch was served and I was expecting it to be what you would normally have in London, not much. The food came out and it was spot on. Every course was delicious and the commentary was very informative. After lunch it was only a short walk to the shard and again we were really impressed. The only thing that let this trip down was the weather as it was a bit hazy at the top of the shard. Normally I don't fill these things out but if you want a good day out which is reasonably priced then do this. We are already planning on taking friend and family next time.

Lovely food, great sites to see down the river, but unfortunately speaker couldn't be heard very well. Had an absolutely fabulous time at the shard. Beautiful views and worth every penny.

My Sophisticated luncheon and a Can I touch the sky Shard experience

With waiters and waitresses lined up and awaiting, hospitality and customer service seemed to be high on the agenda as we arrived onto the boat. As I took my seat, I was impressed with the high standards of cleanliness neatness and definite waves of luxury. I was not disappointed as the menu tasted as good as it sounded and for me the portions were spot on. As most know make sure you put aside those extras pennies for the additional drinks. An element I didn’t expect but found an added bonus was the running commentary playing throughout most of the cruise informing us of landmarks and places we were passing on the cruise. All in all I found it to be a calming relaxing chilled experience. I found on entering the shard, quite a build up as it felt as though I was actually waiting to go on a ride at Disney or Alton Towers. After unwittedly waiting in the wrong queue I was told to rejoin another line which surprise surprise was the longest queue. This is where clear indicators of which queue to join would be beneficial. Once my ticket had been issued there was plenty of staff on hand to show me which corner to turn and lift to enter. Undeniably the view was great you can’t help but search, point and natter as you look for all those well known landmarks and places of interest. For me it’s a wow!!...but I only need to do this once type of experience.

Fabulous day out

We travelled to London with a first visit to the Shard - what can I say, amazing. Later we joined the Symphony Lunch Cruise - very slick and organised. Fantastic day out - thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great experience

Had a great day out, unfortunately we did not receive the commentary on the boat as the speaker was broken.
