Date Night: Emirates Airline


For once this date night was planned at the last minute. Normally we know at least a week before but on Friday afternoon, we remembered the previous suggestion to head up the Emirates Airline over the Thames and probably have dinner or drinks afterwards. The sun was half shining and knowing it wouldn't be the most expensive thing in the world, we went for it! 


 There are various ticket options – from your regular Oyster card tap to hiring your own cabin for £90, but we went in-between and spent £10.70 on a the Discovery Experience ticket which includes a return trip, tour booklet and entrance to the Aviation Experience. Annoyingly, we weren’t told at the time that this part was closed. However, with it being so quiet we were in a cabin of our own!


 Afterwards we had the chance to picture ourselves in different cities around the world, which made our desire to travel even greater than usual. However, when we do travel , I hope to get better pictures than these…


The views from up above were fantastic and the lights of the 02 Arena and Canary Wharf shone bright. We went at just the right time of day to have the first trip under the setting sun, and the return trip in darkness. It made the experience even better!


 We got off halfway at the Royal Docks and walked along with riverfront where we found a few restaurants and the Excel building. I’ve only been in that area once before and it is definitely one of the nicest parts of London I’ve come across! If only we could afford to live there.



We headed back to Greenwich Peninsula and went inside the 02 complex to cure Jessica’s craving for pasta, so Zizzi it was. We are quite fans of Zizzi, especially today as we were able to get a free dessert each with being on 02 priority! The chocolate and blood orange cheesecake was fantastic. I went for the prawn linguine, with Jessica going for her all time favourite, Carbonara.


It was another date night to remember, and with it being our anniversary next Friday, we have something extremely romantic lined up! Check back then to see what it is!
