Cable cars are not common sights in cities or in any other flat terrains for that matter. But London being the fantastic place it is, why not give people the ability to view all the sites from a bird’s eye view and in the process give them an experience they won’t forget. Thanks to the London cable car Emirate airline visitors can no see London from a completely different perspective. This type of sight seeing is usually reserved for mountain sides, which makes it all the more unique for a large metropolis like London.


The one kilometer journey gives passengers a view that is hard to beat, seeing as they’re 90 meters above ground, with a stunning 360 degree view in all directions. The cable cars cross over the iconic river Thames, which on its own will leave a remarkable impression on anyone who takes the tour. The London cable car Emirate airline offers great views of the city’s local attractions that make this city so popular amongst tourists and beloved by its citizens.

London’s most famous buildings and attractions that can be seen during the Emirate cable car tour include the Royal Observatory, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, The O2 arena, Greenwich peninsula, the historical Cutty Sark ship, the Excel London venue and many more. It’s a unique way to truly see London from a different perspective.

Using the Emirates airline app will almost certainly enrich the tour by giving you highlights of all the landmarks that can bee seen from the cable cars. It’s a fun way of making sure you don’t miss out on any particular sight or building that you’re interested in. There are two terminals, at the Royal Docks on the north side which is close to the Excel center and the Greenwich peninsula terminal on the south side near the O2 arena.


For adults the tour costs £4.50 for a single fare, while the Emirates Airline Discovery Experience costs £10.70 which includes an in-flight discovery movie and guide with a free entry to the Emirates aviation experience. For children tickets cost £2.30 for a single fare and £6.20 for the Discovery experience.


All cable cars are accessible to people with disabilities in motorized or regular wheelchairs. There are parking spaces surrounding both terminals, and reaching the terminals is easily achieved using public transportation as well.

If you’re visiting London for the first time, this is an offer you simply shouldn’t miss out on, because you will love every second of it. That is, if you’re not afraid heights.
