London's Emirates Air Line, also known as the Thames Cable Car provides new mode of transport for those in the city. With a direct link between the Greenwich peninsula (home to the O2 Arena) and the Royal Docks, the Air Line establishes an alternative way to cross the River Thames and to see the sights of London. A ride on the cable car offers 360 degree views of the City, Canary Wharf, the Thames Barrier and the Olympic Park.
