The Thames Cable Car

Yesterday's pictures were taken from one of the latest yet less well known modes of transport in London: cable car.

The Emirates Air Line looks like its been transplanted from some ski resort and flies you quickly across the Thames in Docklands from the O2 Dome over to Excel exhibition center.
Its a great ride and at £3.20 with Oyster card very good family friendly value. However there's not much to see at the north bank apart from the SS Robin (below) so when we went we did a quick return back down south.
It might not be that great for those who suffer from vertigo but the views as you cross are brilliant,
