Well, I suppose the builders were grinning when they said they’d give it whirl. I should have known better really.
The United Emirates cable car traverses the river Thames in East London between the Royal Victoria Dock, on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and the North Greenwich Peninsula. It can be found on the Standard London Underground Map ⇒ at sector D8. From Greenwich Pensinsula there is a bus service to wonderful Maritime (Cutty Sark) Greenwich ⇐ which is on another branch of the Docklands Light Railway.
It makes sense to use an Oyster Card (touch in/touch out) as this will also save money on the London Underground/Overground and Docklands Light Railway.
BE AWARE: That if you forget to touch in with a card there is a heavy fine. If you forget to touch out when leaving a station, the maximum charge is deducted from your card.
A video of the view ⇒ shows that although it is partly obstructed by the tall buildings of Canary Wharf and lasts 5-10 minutes (according to time of day), it is nevertheless quite good value for money.
It is used for some commuting to and from work, so it is better to avoid peak times.
