Went early morning while the sun was shining so could see for miles. Had the cable car to ourselves so had 360 views. I am frightened of heights so was very nervous but glad I overcame my fear to see so much 😀

Great way to see London from the air, great views of Greenwich and East London. You can see as far as the Olympic village and beyond, great views of Canary Wharf. You can see just how the River Thames snakes through London

Loved it. Didn't think there would be much to see but how wrong I was. I chose The Emirates Air Lane Discovery Experience which gives you access to the Emirates Aviation Experience.
