See London in all its glory with these two very different sightseeing experiences in one. First you and a lucky friend or partner will be lifted to the 72nd level of the Shard tower where you can look out over 64km of London from 800ft above the city. This is almost twice as high as any other point in the city – so see London like you have never seen it before. You can enjoy 360 degree views from the all-glass structure for some incredible panoramic sightseeing. After you have enjoyed the magnificent View from the Shard you will make your way to Westminster Pier where you will board a Thames River Cruise. Aboard the vessel you will enjoy a delicious four-course meal with a half bottle of wine each while you take in the sights of London from a completely different angle – along the river. Relax and tuck into good food as you leisurely drift along spotting the landmarks and enjoying the on-board entertainment.
