Perfect way to fairly cheaply see iconic london sights and see/hear about a lesser known area of the city.Enjoyed an efficient,clean,quick and no hassle experience.would certainly recommend as a must do visit. We linked our trip to the thames clipper river taxi service which got us back to Greenwich pier in a matter of minutes.

This cable car ride from the 02 dome at greenwich was fun the kids loved it , they may have been tired from all the walking, so it was a nice break to soar across the thames
As you come down you can see the beach and there is usually an exhibit going on
You can take single or return trips

We decided to go here after a recommendation from a friend. I was going to take my son on the London eye but she said this was cheaper and just as effective.

£3.50 one way for an adult, this is a great way to see the London views. My six year old loved it. Only down side is that it’s out of the way and in the middle of nowhere. A more central location would have meant higher foot traffic. It feels as if not many people would know about this and given its only a 10 min ride each way, would people come out to do this.

Overall, we enjoyed the trip. If you are at the O2 or doing the Dinosaurs in the Wild show then definitely do this.

This is such a fantastic thing to do if visiting London. Have done the “Eye” a few times but this gives totally different views of the city. Very relaxing and enjoyable. All the staff were really friendly especially the man who’s name starts with a V (I think Valire). Don’t just consider this, do it you will not regret.

Really nice way to see a different part of London that isn't necessarily known for it's prettiness. Was a little cloudy but still had great views of Canary wharf and shard etc. Would for it again as only £7 return and with all the building work they're doing I imagine the skyline will change loads over the next few years. They also slow it down at weekends so you get longer to have a look around
