- Other Info
All our vouchers are fully flexible and can be redeemed against our huge range of experiences. For The View from The Shard: Your ticket is covered by a View Guarantee – if, on the day of your visit, the weather restricts visibility of certain landmarks, then you are entitled to a complimentary return voucher, received directly from the supplier. For the Thames Afternoon Tea Cruise: Seating is pre-allocated before the cruise takes place; your voucher entitles you to a standard seat on board. Most of the tables are located in the middle of the floor space and in very close proximity to each other, with each table (or pair of tables) seating four people – aisles separate them from the window tables, which seat two people only. The boat must keep to a strict timetable and so latecomers will be unable to board the vessel.
