MBNA THAMES Clippers and The Emirates Air Line are notching up the nautical experience for those heading to The London Boat Show 2016 with a special offer ticket.

The luxury showcase of yachts and top-of-the-range sailing gear at Excel in Docklands begins on Friday, January 8 and runs until January 17.

The boat operator has launched a deal which combines entrance and return travel to the venue, which means adults would fork out £31.50 each while youngsters getting on board would be able to do so for £8.90.

Services depart from piers in central London to North Greenwich every 20 minutes.

From there, those heading to the Royal Docks can take to the skies on the Emirates Airline for a short journey over the River Thames.

Family packages can be bought for £66.

On Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10 the London Boat Show ticket will also allow guests to explore The Telegraph Cruise Show and The Telegraph Travel Show for free.

The London Boat Show will be opened by Made in Chelsea reality TV star Lucy Watson .
