The UK’s first urban cable car, known as the Emirates Air Line, connects ExCeL London to The O2 and North Greenwich tube station. In the cable car you can sit back, relax and enjoy stunning aerial views of London from 90m above the River Thames.
All delegates and visitors to events at ExCeL can use the cable car for just £3 single fare - to redeem this exclusive discount, all you need to do is show something that indicates that you are attending an ExCeL event a confirmation email/ticket etc. to the staff at the Emirates Airline terminals.
*Please note that all delegates must purchase their own cable car ticket on the day (please ensure you leave enough time to do so).
A cable car arrives every 30 seconds and flights last approximately 10 minutes — except during rush hours when it runs slightly quicker.
With some of the best views of Greenwich’s most popular landmarks including the O2, the Cutty Sark and the Old Royal Naval College, travelling by boat offers a truly unique perspective on London. The route is serviced by Uber Boat by Thames Clippers.
The BSSH and IFSSH have booked a private vessel to transfer you from the ExCeL to the dinner venue. The vessel is limited to 220 passengers and will be on a first come, first serve basis
We will be charging each delegate and any additional guests £15 per person.
