Crossing the Thames on the air-line offers a unique view of London. You will see some of the City’s more iconic buildings and attractions.

Up At the O2

Once reaching the top, you’ll be rewarded with a 360° panoramic view of London at the top, Historic Greenwich, Olympic Park, Canary Wharf to name a few.

The London Eye Experience
The observation wheel turns slow enough for people to embark while it is moving. A complete turn takes about 30 minutes. Thanks to the construction of the glass capsules on the outer side of the rim, passengers have a great 360° view over London. Many famous landmarks are clearly visible, including the Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament. On a clear day you can see as far as 40 km (25 miles). You could add a food or drink package to your experience. Why not enjoy afternoon tea or champagne whilst seeing the sights of the capital.
