- Pre-tour: 10:30 - 10:45am Emirates Air Line Cable car - if you haven't taken a jaunt over the Thames via the cable car yet, it's worth the quick trip. Recommend jumping on at Royal Docks (north bank) to meet us at the North Greenwich station for 11am. Should cost you about £4 and you can pay by contactless or Oyster. Point of interest: The Crystal (building) adjacent to station is where the GLA have just moved to.
