Travel between Greenwich Peninsula and Royal Docks with magnificant views over east London. Read More


Glide above the Thames in the Emirates Air Line cable car and enjoy great views of London.

Using the cable car is an easy way to get from the Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks. The Emirates cable car trip takes approximately 10 minutes. However, during peak times (7am to 9am Monday to Friday) the journey takes roughly five minutes.

The cars can accommodate up to 10 people and arrive every 30 seconds. You can use your Oyster and Visitor Oyster card or a contactless payment card to pay for the trip.

After 7pm, enjoy extended night flights (12 to 13 minutes each way) with music and video in cabins to enhance your in-flight experience while watch the city come alive after dark.

Emirates Air Line is accessible to wheelchair users and cyclists and is open seven days per week.
