Had no idea what to expect but so enjoyed the fantastic views and just looking at that part of the world from up high. Just wonderful.

Well organised, plenty of staff and smooth running operation. Cars are small (4 people) and go to quite a height, giving great views up and down the river. Very cheap especially for Oyster card holders, for a really unique trip.

It's a vanity project of the former Mayor, of course, but no less exciting for that. I went on a shiny Sunday afternoon after having mulled wine and some food with friends at the Christmas Market by the Dome. They didn't come with me as they had both been on it. Indeed one of my friends uses it for his... More

As long as your not scared of heights then go on a short cable car ride across the River Thames. You wont be disappointed and get a great view of the O2. Highly recommended and good value for money. Discount with a Travelcard.

Have been wanting to do this for ages and it was so worth it! You can use your Oyster card so it's super easy. If it's a clear day, go at sunset! The views won't disappoint.

My nephew and I visited this attraction simply because we were passing it and I have to say it was the highlight of the day. The nice thing about it was that we had a pod to ourselves as I thought we may have to share with strangers. If u are in the area it is well worth a visit

We had often wanted to take a trip on this attraction and finally got our wish on a cold but bright Sunday morning. The cheapest way to take the trip is either by tapping an Oyster card or a contactless debit card. The staff are helpful and friendly and the whole experience is very well run. The ride takes about... More

Decided to visit this attraction on a bright and sunny Saturday morning. Situated close to the O2 stadium, the cable car is accessed via the Jubilee tube and is just a short walk from the station. We were able to walk directly onto the ride using contactless payment and all four of us were seated in our own cable car.... More
