Take to the skies of East London

130105 0150

During a recent visit to London I took to the skies on the new Emirates Air Line, a 90 metre high cable car that crosses the Thames in East London between the Royal Docks and Greenwich Peninsula.   The journey is relatively short, taking approximately five minutes during peak times and 10 minutes at other times, though during this time you get spectacular 360 views across the Thames where you can observe the O2, Canary Wharf, the City, Greenwich and the Shard.
