“Great Flight Over The River Thames”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Close by the O2 Arena in London,s Greenwich is the newly constructed Thames Cable Car,run by Emirates Air Line. We took an early flight with no long wait and found a beautiful addition to London,s skyline. A rapid ascent to the heavens takes about 6 minutes in a 10 seat gondola on a journey of 1 kilometer. Arrival at the old Royal Dockyards gives one a panoramic view of London and is close to the end of the City Airport Runway for some spectacular landing shots.

The fare is great value and the whole venue a fantastic extra for London !

“Great Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Really good value for money, We used an Oyster card which made it cheaper and under 5's travel for free. We thought the signage to Cable Car could have been better from North Greenwich train station and there is a lack of toilets in the area, but the cable car is great the staff were very helpful offering to take photo's etc and nothing seemed too much trouble - will definiteley do it again.
