London is England’s most popular tourist destination, and for good reason. From Buckingham Palace to the London Eye, this capital city is full of places to visit and activities to do – and we’re happy to show you our favourite one! The Emirates Air-Line is a cable car taking you from Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks, with breath-taking views of the River Thames and Canary Wharf en route.
Simply take the ‘Jubilee’ line on the underground to the North Greenwich stop, and then walk across the square outside the station to get to the Greenwich terminal. The staff are incredible friendly and will help you with any queries you have once you arrive.
Return tickets start from only £8.40 for oyster card holders, making it a cheap, fun and unique attraction for you to add to your London to-do list.
A one way trip across the river lasts around ten minutes, giving you plenty of time to take in the amazing views that London has to offer. The scenery is particularly stunning as sunset, with the warm colours giving London an extra picturesque feel. Kick back and relax on the comfortable seats as the cable-car takes you high into the sky and across the river, with an informative video playing on a small screen, or get your cameras out and capture a bird’s eye view of England’s capital city.
If you’ve never been on a cable-car, it’s easy enough; just wait in the designated area and, when the cable cars come into the station at reduced speed, you can hop in easily! It’s a bit of a thrill being up to 300ft in the air, but it gives you the chance to see some amazing views.
THE ROYAL DOCKS
Did you know, that the Air-Line is used by many to commute every day? We wouldn’t mind working near the Docks; there are some wonderful things to see on the other side of the Air-Line, including the ‘Sunborn London’ – a magnificent yacht-turned-hotel! Plus, planes flying from London City Airport are low over your heads, so it’s perfect for plane spotting!
