Brilliant Experience
I booked view from The Shard for 2 at 1.15 on a Sunday, when I checked the website it doesn’t open until 2, but I didn’t need to worry we went at 2 and were shown straight to the fast track entry and went right in up. It wasn’t too busy, the views were amazing over London. A thoroughly enjoyable experience I recommend it.

Received a voucher for my birthday last year. Had been meaning to visit the shard, so this was the perfect opportunity to do that for my birthday this year! The weather was perfect, well worth a visit!

Traditional Afternoon Tea and River Thames Cruise for Two
Birthday letdown
I booked this as a birthday treat for husband. I thought we’d be sitting together and enjoying our time together, but this wasn’t the case. We were seated with single customer and had to share our experience with her. Other couples had their tray of food between them but we had a tea for 3. Even the lady was embarrassed by this. And there was empty tables so we couldn’t understand it. So if your booking this expecting a romantic trip forget it. Really spoiled our day.

Traditional Afternoon Tea and River Thames Cruise for Two
Big birthday celebration
Hubby was treated to afternoon tea on river cruise for his recent 80th birthday. It was a great afternoon treat. The service was excellent and every member of staff absolutely perfect in their manner. The food was good, nice selection of sandwiches - smoked salmon, cheese and pickle, chicken salad, egg mayonnaise; delicious scones with the usual cream and jam supplied at these events; a nice selection of petit four style cakes, just a mere mouthful for each flavour but very tasty. We had the added extra at our event of a visit from ‘Her Majesty’ together with accompanying Corgi as they were taking promotional photos, presumably with the upcoming Jubilee in mind which really added to the occasion for us by pure coincidence. Optional fizz is available at extra cost which also added to the occasion if you wished to partake. Good commentary of the passing vista and history as you travel along the river also added to the atmosphere. All in all a thoroughly great afternoon, would definitely recommend.
