The Emirates Air Line Discovery Combined pass that gives access to the Emirates Aviation Experience. !!! Don't be fooled like we were!!! Easy to find from North Greenwich station... Boarded the capsule to a slow boring journey which is heavily Over priced! We paid extra for this aviation experience, basically a mini museum with different parts of an aircraft to... More

I had taken the Underground and the DLR from Central London to the ExCel London Convention Centre on a Wednesday morning to pick up my London Marathon race package. I had decided to visit the O2 Arena afterwards by crossing the River Thames on the Emirates Air Line. From The ExCel, it was only a 5-minute walk to catch the... More

It is great to see and experience London Docklands from the top. I liked everything about it. The only thing that may be was short is the length of the Line - we wished we could go on and on...

My wheelchair was not at the aircraft side as required. We again broke our journey home in Singapore.we were delivered to our hotel and assured we would... More

Nice ride but works much better in the evening when London lights show it at its best. Try to ignore building site below and around starting point...

Very beautiful view from the cable car. Especially the O2 arena and the London City Airport. Airplanes flying over you just after takeoff-unbeatable feeling! Not to mention the rest of the city which is pretty visible from the cable car. I suggest going in dusk on a clear day :) Both ways!

I'd only heard of this incredible cable car attraction a few days before visiting London, so it was a must-see (having never before been on a cable car). It is amazing value, at only £3.60 for a single ticket, in my case, travelling south from Royal Docks to North Greenwich / O2. Basically, you quickly reach 250 feet in the... More

Emirates Airlines are well known for coming up with amazing architectural wonders. Dubai is witness to EK's fascinating structures. So it was no wonder to become part of this experience, but a true delight. Though I'm bit afraid of elevated locomotives, this was amazingly safe. Those whom have been on Wall of China's cable car would probably second me on... More
