Whether its a casual commute to work, a trip to the O2 arena or a tourist day out, the Emirates Airline (cable cars) is a lovely way to see London. If you have been an avid reader of ‘A London Lookbook’ you will know I adore seeing London from above, and finding different perspectives of the capital city.
Trust me to pick a day to go when the weather is gloomy and miserable! Whilst the weather didn’t hold out for me on my trip, this would be the perfect activity this summer, especially this weekend. From Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks you have lovely scenic views of London in just 10 minutes.
With audio in your cabin car as well, you get learn all about the Emirates Airline and the surrounding areas of this view. Like I said before this would be the perfect activity this summer, or if you time it right while the sun is setting over London. Or at night where you can see the likes of Canary Wharf lit up, which weirdly I find beautiful. Even though I am a fan of more traditional architecture.
You could make it just a quick cable car ride or a day out.. Whatever takes your fancy, with the museum of London Docklands, the O2 arena, Newham City Farm and many restaurants you could find yourself here for a while. We got caught up in people watching at Comic Con at the Excel Arena.
Overall I preferred the view back to North Greenwich, maybe I’m biased as it’s showcased the view of my favourite parts of London like Canary Wharf, The Gherkin, The Shard and Olympic Stadium.
If you want to take a trip on the Emirates Air Line cable cars check the website out to book tickets or you can simply use your oyster card (1-3).
Hope you enjoy this post and have fun this summer in London, let me know if you take a trip on this!
