This cable car allows for spectacular views of London as you travel effortlessly and quietly over the Thames. It was a wonderful even for a friend who suffers a little when up high. It was good value and included a mini display on one side....More

Went in the evening so did the one way slightly longer trip and explored at each end. Nice cable car trips and the view is incredible when it's good weather. Couldn't quite see the most famous parts of London but can see pretty far along...More

Arrived at 9:30 on a Sunday morning. Had the gondola just the two of us. Went one way but the views are spectacular. It was a clear sunny day. Staff very friendly and well organised.

Lucky enough to go on this today. Wonderful views over this part of the River Thames. It takes you up quite high. A smooth ride. Not at all bumpy. We came back to our hotel in Victoria Dock this way, once it had got dark,...More

We were visiting the Excel Centre recently and decided to take the tube and then the scenic route across the river. It was fantastic- the weather was perfect and the views stunning! Although the crossing took about 20 minutes it seemed more like two! The...More

No. Either buy a ticket right there or use your Oyster card if you have one.
Is the Night flight cable car experience operating right now? Also we have oyester cards, do we need to put extra money on them to buy those tickets or do we just show to received discounted tickets?

Make sure you pay using the Oyster Card, or you will not receive the discount.
4 pound 50 for adults 2 pound 30 for children. My suggestion use an Oyster card, much easier and costs are cheaper 3 pound 50 for adults and 1 pound 70 for children.

Make sure you use the Oyster card to pay! We thought we only had to show the card and it would be cheaper, but we were wrong, you actually have to buy the tickets with the Oyster card!
