The Emirates Aviation Experience is closed temporarily until further notice to help contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
How to get here
We are inside the M25 and outside the Congestion Zone. You can use the Millennium Way or Edmund Halley Way junctions and you can also follow the O2 signposts. For parking please read below.
By cable car
We are right outside the cable car south terminal, the Emirates Greenwich Peninsula. You can get to the north terminal, the Royal Docks, with the DLR. The nearest stop is Royal Victoria. For more details go to TFL online.
We are nearby the North Greenwich Pier. The MBNA Thames Clippers arrive from the London Eye and London Bridge Piers, and the journey takes around 30 minutes. You can go on their website for more details about Clippers.
Parking is available nearby (parking map in PDF) at hourly rates. If you are planning to use any of the O2 Car Parks, we recommend contacting them in advance at 020 8463 6718 to confirm the prices, as they may be different on the day of your visit, if there is an event happening. Alternatively, you could park at the nearby Holiday Inn Greenwich Parking or at the NCP.
We are on the Greenwich Peninsula, a hub of activity with many exciting things happening almost every day.
We are minutes away from The O2, which has many restaurants, bars and attractions, including a Cineworld, the Nissan Innovation Station and Sky Studios. You can find out more at Do More at the O2 website. If you’ve got a head for heights, you can also visit Up at the O2 and walk over the arena’s iconic dome.
The venue is fully accessible with an accessible lift and toilet, and our team will help all visitors who require assistance to get the most out of their experience, including flying in the flight simulators.
