IFS Cloud Cable Car

Forever seeking thrills? Try this roundup of the best adrenalin-fuelled fun to be found on Greenwich Peninsula, the home of adventure in south London!

Start by taking the spectacular, scenic route to Greenwich Peninsula – the IFS Cloud Cable Car. Climbing to an awe-inspiring 90m above the Thames, the Cable Car offers some of the best views of London! You can also learn more about its history or enter a world of Virtual Reality at the adjoining London Cable Car Experience.

Uber Boat By Thames Clippers and The O2

To see the sights along the river, jump aboard the River Bus with frequent departures to and from North Greenwich Pier. You’ll get perfect views of Greenwich Peninsula, Canary Wharf and the City of London with Uber Boat by Thames Clippers. On board you will find a café bar, comfortable seats and big windows to enjoy the sights. You’ll even cross the Greenwich Meridian Line as you whizz past the iconic tented roof of The O2, London’s most popular multi-entertainment venue. 

iFLY The O2

To enjoy even more height and top London views, strap on your harness and climb that famous roof, with Up at The O2. Allow around 90 minutes for the entire experience and expect to be wowed. Once you’re safely back on terra firma, there are plenty more thrills awaiting inside The O2. There’s indoor ‘skydiving’ sensation iFLY; Oxygen Freejumping (the UK’s number one indoor trampolining park); and ten-pin bowling at the Hollywood Bowl. And, just outside, golf lovers will be in clover – with the choice of Greenwich Peninsula Golf Driving Range and CrazyPutt Adventure Golf.

Brew By Numbers Morden Wharf

Of course, even the most dedicated adrenaline junkies need somewhere to pause and refresh themselves. Head to The O2 for TOCA Social – the world’s first interactive football and dining experience, with 17 playing spaces, three bars and plenty more for lovers of the world game. There’s also axe-throwing, shuffleboard and cocktails at Boom Battle Bar. The Design District has plenty of top-notch eating and drinking; craft beer lovers can head for Brew by Numbers brewery and bar at Morden Wharf; while Eighteen Sky Bar slings posh cocktails and exceptional views from the 18th floor of the InterContinental London - The O2.

Greenwich Peninsula really is south London’s liveliest adventure locale!
