Emirates Airline Cable Car and Thames River Cruise

During your time in London, avoid crowded underground trains and traffic jams with an Emirates Air Line cable car and Thames River cruise ticket. Ideal for families, this package allows you to cruise around the capital with a full-day River Roamer ticket, passing iconic landmarks such as the London Eye, Big Ben, and Tower Bridge. Then, enjoy panoramic vistas during a ride on the Emirates Air Line: plus, you’ll receive a souvenir in-flight guide and gain entry to the Emirate Aviation Experience.

What to Expect

After making your own way to one of six departure points along the Thames River, present your paper voucher to a representative and receive your transport tickets. Opt to board a spacious catamaran at either Westminster Pier, Embankment Pier, London Bridge City Pier, Tower Pier, North Greenwich Pier or Greenwich Pier. With boats departing every 20 minutes, you won’t have to wait long to start cruising around the capital.

Depending on where you’ve embarked, pass London landmarks lining the banks of the Thames River: see the London Eye, Tower Bridge, and the Houses of Parliament, and relish the flexibility of hopping on and off whenever an attraction sparks your interest.

To access the Emirates Airline, hop off at Greenwich Pier and show your ticket to a representative. Soar over the city in a cable car, enjoying unrivaled views of the Olympic Park, the O2 Arena, and London’s skyline.

Spend as much time as you like exploring London with your full-day pass.

Wonder views and way to travel

Journey from the Bankside Pier to North Greenwich to catch the Emirates Airline Cable Car/Gondola was a wonderful way to get to the ExCel centre across the Thames from the O2.

Something different

A great little boat that zips around the thames. They are not the most efficient mode of transport as it takes a while to dock at each stop, but if you’re not in a rush it’s worth having a go. We got a great view...More

Hi, Thanks for the feedback. It may surprise you to know that between some points in Central London and the O2, the River Bus is arguably the fastest way across. Come back again soon. Best Regards, Raj

It should specify on the voucher. This one specifically states Cable car and cruise, so yes, I believe it does.

Where are you thinking from? I believe it leaves at 10.30 from the city centre.
