Opened just in time for last year’s London Olympics, the Emirates Air Line is Britain’s only Cable Car System.

The Emirates Air Line (also known as the Thames cable car) is a cable car link across the River Thames in London built with sponsorship from the airline Emirates. The service opened on 28 June 2012 and is operated by Transport for London. It has an average ridership of 31,601 passenger journeys a week.

It links the Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks across the Thames River. It’s a fun way to see London from above and enjoy a quiet ride.
