We were at the O2 Arena, so decided to take a ride on this cable car. We did a trip from the O2 across the river and back again. It's only 10 minutes each way, and cost 10.50. You are really far east in London, so you will not see any of the big London sites. It's fun and cheap,... More

It is sort of cool to take the cable car, but realize you are really far east and won't see any of the big London sites from the air. It's a fun few minutes, it's cheap. But don't go out of your way for this.

Was visiting the O2 and decided to try the ride over the Thames on the cable cars (a few minutes’ walk from the arena). We bought 360 around trip tickets with a discount for having oyster cards. This meant we could stay on the cable cars for the return journey and also received an in-flight guide of the surrounding area.... More

We booked online and got a good discount. A nice gentle ride on the cable cars and as it wasn't busy we had one to ourselves. We stayed on and did the round trip. Staff were friendly and helpful. Video inside cable car was interesting and informative. Museum was good and the cafe was lovely for a quite bite.

A really unique view from up here. We got to see a lot of London as we had a beautiful sunny day. Easy to find from the Tube station. Loved the running commentary going on while you fly. It points out the small details you can see as well as the large. Staff fill the car up depending on the... More

We've been on the cable car a few times and it never seems particularly busy and is pretty good value with an Oyster card. It's a lovely way to see London and point out all the sights to the children as well as just watch the boats on the river.

Emirates Air Line Cable Car - Greenwich Peninsula. Is a great cable car but if you are scared of heights this is not the place for you.On the other hand,It is a great view and it is great to see what the Thames looks like from the top.

Heard a lot about this cable car but first time travelled on it. You can either use your Oyster or contactless to pay the one way charge or buy a ticket ( for round trip). Well managed / directed onto the 'cars' and generally 6 people were placed into each. Really good views and lasts approximately 5 minutes.
