Attraction Information

Enjoy great views and a unique ride across the Thames on the Emirates Air Line Cable Car!

Join over 5 million other passengers and experience London and the UK's first and only urban cable car. Take in incredible views across the city from the highest observation point directly above the Thames including the O2, historic Greenwich and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Your experience will begin in Greenwich where you'll board your cabin then you can just sit back, relax and take in the 360-degree aerial views throughout your 10-minute flight. And with your souvenir In-Flight Guide and onboard video, you'll be able to pick out the iconic landmarks and learn about them all as you spot them.

Don't worry if you miss anything on your first flight though as you'll get a second chance to spot the sights on your return journey. And once you return to the Emirates Greenwich Peninsula, you can either visit some of the nearby attractions such as The O2, Royal Observatory and Planetarium and Cutty Sark which are not too far away or if you choose to start and end your experience at the Emirates Royal Docks, you can take a stroll around the waterfront, attend an event at Excel or maybe head in to town on the nearby DLR.

Plus, don't forget to visit the Emirates Aviation Experience - a unique experience for all ages packed full of life-size aircraft models and interactive displays.

The Emirates Air Line cable car offers an inexpensive way to get great views of London and is a must do for all sightseers, big or small!
