The emirates cable car is a great way to travel across the Thames either departing from Greenwich 02 or Emirates Greenwich Peninsula- if you’ve got an Oyster card a return journey is under £8. We opted for a one way adult trip which was reduced...More

My wife and I stayed on the Sunborn London and this was the perfect way to travel on and off of the Peninsula - any other form of public transport was too long and much more expensive. Really simple process, no need to book, really...More

Wonderful views, very comfortable and spacious cabins. The staff from the booking office to the people taking your tickets and the ones helping you on and off were pleasant, friendly, helpful and kind. Thank you staff. Service always makes everything the best it can be.

don't buy an attraction ticket or any other tourist tickets. just get an Oyster card and pay standard public transport fee! it is cheap and you can access the cable car the same. You can get some great views up there during day or night.

Delightful trip - but please be aware that it's much cheaper to buy 2 single journey tickets than a return... you just have to get off and buy another ticket to come back and you save £s

Cheap and unusual way to get a perspective of the scale of London, and where things are in relation to Greenwich. A short commentary provides facts about the re generation of that area. Spacious cars, no cramming people in, so lots of opportunities to take...More

The cable car journey lasts 15 minutes and in that time you see some wonderful views, especially as we visited on a sunny day. Great value for just a few quid!

I am not sure. You should contact Emirates Air Line and ask them about this.
