#London Summer #SchoolHolidays - Emirates Air Line @EmiratesAirLDN

Daily Constitutional Editor Adam writes…


Every year on The Daily Constitutional, as the high season for visitors to London hots up, I spend August sharing a few archive posts. This year I'm reposting recommendations from our If You Do One Other Thing In London slot (a regular feature of our Saturday London Spy posts) and updated posts from the Best Museums In London series, in which the London Walks guides shared their best London museum tips. 

If theres' a London Walks tour starting or ending nearby I'll add the details at the bottom of each post. I hope you find these posts helpful over the course of the summer.

Keep in touch - I'm not going into hiding! - I'll be posting throughout August and, of course, I'll see many of you "out there" on London Walks tours. All of our regular features – and some new ones, too – will return in September.

Cross the River #1: High Overhead

The first of a two-part post on crossing our mighty River Thames goes high overhead.


Great views from the Emirates Air Line - London's only cable car service.


Single fares start at £3.50,  full pricing info is at www.emiratesairline.co.uk.



Here’s one of the views in question (below)…




The Northern terminus is at Royal Docks, 27 Western Gateway London E16 4FA. Travelling from the South go to Emirates Cable Car Terminal, Edmund Halley Way, London SE10 0FR (see the map below)



It’s the best way to just hang around in London. (Do you see what I did there? :) ) And it's the ideal compliment to the Docklands Walk on the first Saturday of every month, full details at www.walks.com.



A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
