Published on 18th March 2022

A new Sightseeing Experience from the River from The View from The Shard and Uber Boat by Thames Clippers. The View from The Shard, the popular visitor attraction that sits at the top of The Shard, has partnered with Uber Boat by Thames Clippers, London’s River Bus, to launch a brand-new sightseeing river experience. The View from The River will run from London Bridge City Pier which is visible from the top of The Shard and just a few minutes’ walk from London’s most iconic building. The View from The River is a 50-minute sightseeing experience that takes visitors on a circular route along the Thames to enjoy many of London’s riverside attractions like St Paul’s Cathedral, Houses of Parliament, The London Eye and under Tower Bridge. The tours depart twice a day from Wednesday to Sunday at 2pm and 3:15pm. Uber Boat by Thames Clippers vessels have comfortable seating inside and on the back-deck and an onboard café bar stocking a range of drinks from champagne to hot drinks. A London expert will provide quirky facts and entertaining live commentary to make sure passengers do not miss any of the many famous landmarks they are sailing past. The View from The River is available to book at www.theviewfromtheshard.com at just £12 per person.
