We will permanently close on Sunday 5 June 2022.

It is with great sadness that we must inform you that the Emirates Aviation Experience will be closing to the public later this year. The past 9 years have been a real pleasure as almost one million visitors got to experience what we had to offer and over 25,000 simulator sessions were delivered to budding pilots from all over the world. We hope all of our visitors will remember the experience with fond memories – we certainly will.

On our last day Sunday 5th June we will open at 10am and close at 3pm.

Please be aware that until further notice our Accessible Lift is our of service. We apologise for the inconvenience.

How to get here

By tube

We are a 5 minutes’ walk from the North Greenwich Station. The Jubilee Line takes 20 minutes to get here from central London and 10 minutes from Stratford. Plan your journey at TFL or see the PDF London tube map here.

By bus

Buses 108, 129, 132, 161, 188, 422, 472 and 486 go via North Greenwich station and you can catch 188 from central London. See more about TFL fares online or see the PDF North Greenwich bus map 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.

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.

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.
