Emirates Air Line

Cable Car in East London

This cable car makes quick work of the journey from the Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks. Although it's mostly patronised by tourists for the views over the river – and the views are good – it's also a listed part of the transport network, meaning you can pay with your Oyster Card and nab a discount while you're at it.

Capable of ferrying 2400 people per hour across the Thames in either direction. Sometimes closed in high wind.
