City Cruises & The View From The Shard Combo:
Join City Cruises and cast off from any of their four piers located along the banks of the River Thames. Hop-on and off at your leisure for 24 hours between piers at Westminster, the London Eye, Tower Bridge and Greenwich. Enjoy either live or pre-recorded onboard audio commentary about London and its incredible 2000 year history. This combination ticket also includes entry to The View from the Shard observation deck.
On a clear day there's no better way to take in the sweeping vistas of London's cityscape than to ascend to the recently opened observation levels of the Shard skyscraper. Guests will have access to free Wi-Fi, a gift shop and interactive 'Tell:Scopes', which automatically identify numerous London landmarks and offer commentary in up to 10 languages. The View's pinnacle is the level 72 observation deck, a vantage point that is partially open air.
Stand an incredible 800ft above London's streets as you peer out from the pyramidal glasswork of Western Europe's tallest building. You won't find a better view across the city with a line of sight extending as far as 40 miles!
