Did this as a one way crossing from the O2.
No queue worth mentioning, and generally six folk per car meant plenty of space to see the sights while crossing the Thames.

Decent weather meant we had a good view, and it was very reasonably priced too.

We only found out about the cable cars when we went to the O2 arena and saw them running. Just a few minutes walk away you can get tickets one way to the docks and the exhibition centre there, or a return ticket or 360 ticket where you don’t get off. We did the 360 and it cost about £8. This included access to an aeroplane exhibit where you can do flight simulation in the cockpit of an emirates plane. (For an extra fee.) Cafe also on site.
I thought it was good value. You get a nice souvenir panoramic picture of the area to keep.
The cable cars seat 10 so you may get put with others if you are just a couple. The view from the cars is great and it’s a smooth ride for any nervous passengers.

If you visit 02, coming to the cable car as method of travel or just for fun is awesome regardless. Really good view, we went evening: therefore nice city lights at night, you got some music playing inside as well so you can relax.
Definitely use cable car if you are nearby and want to get to the 02 arena/that area across Thames.

Had to do the cable car across the Thames. Really well priced at £3-50 single it is an absolute bargain. Constant loop and no queing even on a Saturday afternoon. It gives up some great views from the pods up in the sky!
