Visited on a Saturday after climbing the O2. £3.50 with an oyster card. Great view and commentary. View is better than up the O2. Worth a visit and the connection to the DLR work well.

This is great value for money and really well run. Great views. Well worth it. One of our group couldn’t cope with the height and sat on the floor of the cable car. It’s not for those who don’t like heights.
