Great view of the docklands and canary wharf, but not really anything else. The tickets are cheap hence it's a great alternative to the London eye or the shard.

Walked up to this venue on a Saturday just before lunch and were surprised to see no queues! The staff were great & show you into your spacious car just like the London Eye. The views over Thames were great, not too many landmarks to see (could see Olympic stadium in distance) but was a great way to cross the river & we went up much higher than we expected. Kids really enjoyed it. Was really reasonable as Oyster cards are acceptable as it's London transport. Tube station nearby to get into Central London & tube goes right past Tower of London! Definitely a must do.

We were lucky enough to have a beautiful clear day when we used the cable car and therefore had great views. We didn't have to que and at £4.20 it wasn't expensive at all...would definitely recommend it.

Had no idea this existed, was in the area and jumped aboard. If you've got a clear day this is a must for the views over the Thames and Docklands. Friendly staff, and only £3.20 with my travelcard, bargain :-)
