A really fun thing to do when in London and not at all expensive. The trip takes around 10 mins and in that time you will be presented with great views of the O2 and London. Highly recommended.

Awesome view of London. We used our oyster card and rode across and then took the tube to our next attraction. It was a carefree trip and well worth the ride. Best view of the Thames and London in a newly developed section of the...More

It was a great experience, we were 4 in one cabin, so we had enough space to look around. Don't make a special journey to do this, but certainly worth a visit when you're in the area (O2 arena e.g.)

First of all, a warning: you don’t need a ‘boarding pass’ to go on this. You can tap in and tap out using contactless and save yourself about £4 in the process. The ticket staff don’t tell you this. Nor is it very clear for...More
