Reviewed December 12, 2012

A great, new addition to the public transport network that also serves as an attraction. Superb view from the cable car. You can travel on your Oyster card.

“Beautiful experience”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

I enjoyed the trip very much. Something different to do in London. The view of the Thames and the millennium dome. As well as London's skyline with all skyscrapers. Fantastic

“Lovely on a clear day!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

So easy with your Oyster card! Straight in and onto the cable car, smooth ride across the Thames with fantastic views across London. The cars themselves are clean and comfortable and it all seemed to run like clockwork. Much more interesting than the usual underground or DLR routes.
I would recommend this to all not bothered by heights!

“Fly by wire”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

What an experience. I am not one that is particularly fond of heights, but this is worth taking the plunge. From a warm friendly greeting to the exhilarating views you get from the comfort of you panoramic cable car, it is an experience not to miss. It is relatively inexpensive and if you have an Oyster card it is even cheaper.it was so good that we plan to go again the next time we visit london.

Wonderful views. Worth going. Another way of crossing the Thames from Greenwich. Use your oyster card and beat the queues.
