The Emirates Air Line has opened, providing a quick and direct route across the Thames.
You can enjoy an exciting 1.1km cable car journey from Emirates Greenwich Peninsula near the O2 Arena and North Greenwich Tube station to Emirates Royal Docks near Royal Victoria DLR station and the ExCeL Centre.
Rising to a height of 90 metres, the Emirates Air Line is a unique travel experience, giving spectacular views across the city, including St Paul's Cathedral, the Old Royal Naval College Greenwich, the Thames Barrier and the Olympic Park.
The Emirates Air Line has been constructed as an additional river crossing east of Tower Bridge.
The cable car, which is sponsored by Emirates, connects local communities and provides new journey options for business and leisure trips and, by attracting visitors and tourists will help to regenerate areas on both sides of the Thames.
