This is a very unique way of viewing London. It offers great views (weather allowing) and is an extremely neat piece of engineering. If you park at the o2 and need to get across... read more

This is a very unique way of viewing London. It offers great views (weather allowing) and is an extremely neat piece of engineering. If you park at the o2 and need to get across the river I would highly recommend it.

This is great fun and if you take your travel card the cost is reduced. We were lucky to get fantastic views of London including the Thames barrier. Give it a go!

We had some time to kill on a visit to London went on the cable car. It goes from the O2 to Royal Victoria. The weather wasn't the best for it but it's worth it in any case. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The short trip gives a you a nice view of that part of London. I... More

Emirates Airlines- Cable Car provides a wonderful experience complementing their inflight experience. Its bit expensive though and the cable car journey is hardly 10 minutes!

A different way to get to the O2. Only £2.30 with an Oyster card for a single ticket. No queue at Royal Victoria end at 16.30 hrs on a Monday afternoon in March. A short walk to the O2 at the other end. Anyone not comfortable with heights might want to think about it, but is very secure and offers... More

What a brilliant way to get across London. Birds eye views everywhere you look. Spacious clean cable cars all the way......just be aware if you hate heights as it is very far from the ground..........:)

This is such a novelty but I love it! I usually take it when I go to see an event at the O2 arena and even though I have to pretty much take a longer route, I do it just to take this as it's fun! Put it this way, you won't get this view no matter what tube line... More

This is our 2nd 'fight' in the cable car. On a Saturday very short wait, but the wind didn't make it such a pleasure as our previous trip, a bit of swaying!! As on our previous visit the whole trip though was made better by the friendly and courteous staff.

Brilliant views, even on a flat dull day, and it's a long way up! On a bright clear day, though, the scenery is stunning. Stay sitting down and just look around you. If you're worried about heights, it is a little daunting, but you're only up there ten minutes or so, so be brave, it's definitely worth it. You can... More
