Emirates Air Line

At the weekend my boyfriend and I has a spare few hours in London while we were waiting for friends and decided to do something we hadn't done before. After lots of suggestion to choose to brave the DLR and  head over to the Emirates Air Line. Can you believe it's two years old? It feels like only yesterday it was being built!

After being told it was a mere 15 minutes queue we excitedly purchased our boarding passes - £3.30 if you have a pre paid oyster or travelcard. I'm a sucker for a good view and this was amazing. I never tire of seeing my favourite city from high up. There's not quite another skyline like it in my opinion. You could see the o2 Arena, Olympic Stadium, the Orbit and Canary Wharf to name a few. I can't wait to go again in the winter and see the city all lit up and looking pretty.

 Have you ever been on the cable cars?


  1. I've never been myself...truth be told..I wasn't really aware of it! Thanks for this info..;)

  2. Looks amazing. I must admit I've never been on, but I will try to remember it next time we go.

    X x

  3. I haven't been on the ones in London but once when I was skiing my family got stuck in a cable car in thunder and lightening and we were the only ones in the cable car and they stopped them for about an hour because they didn't realise there were people needing to get off. I swear I thought I was going to get hit by lightening and die there and then. Looks like your experience was slightly more relaxed ha ha ha!

    1. Oh gosh that sounds traumatic! Mine was a lot more relaxed it seems!

  4. I'm going to visit this when I'm in town on Sept, good value if you have an oyster card and a great way to see the views xx

  5. Oh, this looks great fun, I've never been.

  6. I love the cable car - so much fun! x
