A fab way to see the city skyline. Excellent views of the London skyline. Professional and clean pods. Reasonably priced, show a travel card to get a discount. We opted for the discovery experience which was great. Our 4 year old daughter loved the experience.

For those of us who have taken out a mortgage for the London Eye (of course many offers are available) this is a far more reasonable priced experience. This gives you some great views of other areas of London you may not be familiar with....More

We went on a round trip and didn't get off on the Excel side. No queue, got car to ourselves and despite the cloudy weather there were great views. Definitely worth doing.

Located right by the o2, we arrived by the clipper boat and went on the cable cars. It was something different to do. It crosses the river and gives great views of all around. We paid for the experience which included a return trip, plus...More

Sadly it's not a very long trip but the views up and over the Thames are lovely. You can see the Thames barrier and look back at the O2 among other things. Cars take 8-10 people maximum but if it's not very busy you won't...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I'm hoping to catch the cable car from a gig at the O2 back to my hotel. The gig finishes at 10:30 and the line closes at 11. Does that mean the last car leaves at 11? What happens if there is a big queue still at 11? Do the rest of us get turned away?
