This tour has been and gone, but don't worry, we've got lots more Great Days Out to choose from.

Celebrate summer in the city at Avant Garden at The View From The Shard! Experience London at new heights with 360 panoramic views and an Open-Air Skydeck, all with a floral twist! This special summer installation draws inspiration from classic English gardens and iconic London events, such as The Chelsea Flower Show, featuring unique soundtracks and floral scentscapes! There's even the rare opportunity to play a grand piano 300 metres above London! If that's not enough, their resident expert mixologists have combined summery scents and floral flavours to create a great choice of seasonal cocktails!

Then, back to ground level for a cruise along the River Thames, taking in the sights from a different perspective. Enjoy afternoon tea whilst cruising past some of London's greatest landmarks. There's an appetising menu on offer including a selection of sandwiches, sultana scones with clotted cream and jam, Chef's selection of mini pastries and a choice of flavoured teas or fresh filtered coffee.
