What Can I Expect
So you're in the big smoke and you want to see the best of London? Well, you've come to the right place. Our very select 'Best of London' package combines two of the finest activities you can do in the capital, giving you fabulous views and keeping you fed and watered too!
Your Best of London excursion will see you visiting The Shard and enjoying a relaxing Thames cruise trip - both really popular things to do in the capital and they often draw sell-out crowds, so these deals save you all the hassle of queuing for tickets and you can just concentrate on having a good time.
First up is the wonderful Shard. This edifice has really put a new spin on the word skyscraper as it is currently the tallest building in western Europe. You can see it sparkling down at you from all over capital and it's easily the best recognisable building on London's skyline today. As well as being home to the spiked pyramid, the whole of the London Bridge quarter has been regenerated, with a 'baby Shard' called The Place and more architectural brilliance to come from Renzo Piano who has been commissioned to design a new 27 storey tower right next to the iconic Shard - it looks like some of the best buildings of London will continue to be south of river!
Your package includes a pair of tickets to visit the inside of this incredible structure. You'll be whizzed up to the public observation floors in just minutes thanks to the ultra rapid lifts and believe us, the view from the 72nd floor is simply spectacular whatever the weather. Following this vertiginous excursion, your Best of London day out continues back at water level.
It's a quick hop to the other side of the river for your Thames cruise departure. Setting off from Tower Millennium Pier, you'll be transported along the waters of the capital in style. This fleet of fabulous sightseeing boats is one of the best London has to offer, all vessels have large panoramic windows and some even have huge open air decks. Perfect for relaxed sightseeing.
What's more, this isn't just a ride on a boat. There's the small matter of your tasty high tea served on the high seas…well, the lilting waters. Your allocated table is yours for the duration of the trip and your sweet and savoury goodies will be served at your table to accompany your voyage. Of course, there are scones, cream and jam as well as a choice of hot drink and the usual offerings of sandwiches and bite-sized cakes making this one of the best ways to enjoy London's views.
So if you want to experience the very Best of London town, you can't go wrong with these superb vouchers. Packages give the two of you a full day out in London that combines the best in high-altitude and low-altitude sightseeing. Whether you're a day-tripper or you live in the capital, it's a must-do way to discover life on and above the Thames for the best that London has to offer.
