The  Champagne View Experience


The Champagne View Experience

This tour is all about the sites above and below - see London from the river and high in sky but staying firmly on the ground.

Start your day with a leisurely cruise along the Thames taking in familiar sites then blow away the cobwebs with high speed and aquabatics passing Canary Wharf with its modern skyscrapers, Royal Greenwich and the historical Naval College, the famous O2 Dome before the majestic Thames Barrier.

 Arrive at London Bridge City pier for a short walk to regain your composure and your VIP visit to The View from the Shard. 

At a height of up to 800ft or 244m, the View from the Shard offer spectacular views over London for up to 40 miles. Guests embark in high-speed ‘kaleidoscopic’ lifts to ascend to the first triple-height viewing platform on Level 69.

Ascending to Level 72, the open-air viewing gallery, guests can gaze up to the very top of the building as the shards of glass that form the spire disappear into the sky. Exposed to the elements, you can take in the atmosphere and sounds of the city.

​You will be met and greeted by your very own personal guide that will take you to the viewing platforms to show you the magnificent view, pointing out the places of interest. Relax with a glass of Champagne and reflect on your exhilarating  day.
