River & Cable Car

With some of the best views of the capital’s most popular landmarks including Big Ben, the London Eye, the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral and The O2, travelling on a river boat service offers a truly unique perspective on London. The route is serviced by MBNA Thames Clippers; the fastest and most frequent boat fleet on the river with departures from major London piers every 20 minutes. When travelling to ExCeL London, alight at North Greenwich Pier for the O2, where you can use the Emirates Air Line Cable Car for a quick journey to the venue campus.


The UK’s first urban cable car, known as the Emirates Air Line, connects ExCeL London to the O2 and North Greenwich tube station. On the cable car, you can sit back, relax and enjoy stunning aerial views of London from 90m above the river Thames.


All exhibitors and visitors to shows at ExCeL can use the cable car for just £2.50 single fare - to redeem this exclusive discount, all you need to do is show a confirmation email/ticket etc - something that indicates that you are attending an ExCeL event - to the staff at the Emirates Airline terminals. A cabin arrives every 30 seconds and flights last approximately 10 minutes — except during peak commuter times when it runs a bit quicker. Emirates Air Line is fully accessible for most wheelchairs and pushchairs. It has step-free access, and you can even take bicycles on board!
