The Down-River View From the Emirates Air-Line

Previously on my three trips on the Emirates Air-Line, I’ve always sat so I could see up-river.  Today, I sat the other side and looked down-river.

As you can see there was a bit of rain about, so it might be worth checking the wind direction, if there is, so that your side windows are clear.

On a day with good visibility, you’d get a superb view of the Thames Barrier.

Note that up-river for me is one of those titter-words. The fictional cast list of Beyond Our Ken in the 1950s and 1960s, often included a lady called Maud Upriver.
