What a great experience going from Greenwich across the river. Even though the ride was only 10 minutes he views were breathtaking. The service runs like clockwork and the staff seem to enjoy their job. Will do this again.

We travelled to the O2 on Saturday 25/11 booked online the day before saved a bit of money. Me and my daughter had a cable car to ourselves on the trip to the O2 and back. Fantastic views and we'll worth the money.

If you are a photographer similar to myself, then without doubt, this is an amazing opportunity to take a private cabin for the price of £90 and take lots of images of the surrounding areas. It worth it.

No it goes from DLR Royal Victoria to Tube/DLR North Greenwich, where the O2 is not to Greenwich itself for the observatory
