This cable car ride is such good value for money at £4.50 each single. You can even get a further £1 reduction if you have a travel card. The views from the ride are stunning.

What a great experience to glide high up over the Thames with spectacular views of London. The cable cars are clean and large with air conditioning. What a great way to see the O2 and the docklands.

Nice view, disappointing when you get to the other side (north) not much to do except hope on to the DLR.

Visited and traveled with friends last week. Good fun but bad sign where to find it. Stuff are friendly and helpful services. Prices are to expensive £4.5 one way for few minutes of travel.

The idea is really good and we enjoyed it but, the view can be better. It's not so nice, we loved it, but I think this part of the city needs to improve more.

No. Either buy a ticket right there or use your Oyster card if you have one.
Is the Night flight cable car experience operating right now? Also we have oyester cards, do we need to put extra money on them to buy those tickets or do we just show to received discounted tickets?

Make sure you pay using the Oyster Card, or you will not receive the discount.
