Up at the O2

Up at the O2

“Up at the O2” is a different take on London sightseeing. You climb to a dizzying 53-meter height across 320 meters of the O2 arena dome all being held by a heavy-duty cable. You get a real sense of adventure yet it does not require much effort or courage. The panoramic view provides the best possible reward: the famous Thames Barrier, Olympic Park, ultra-modern skyscraper The Shard, Greenwich Observatory and Canary Wharf are right in front of you.


This is one of rare London attractions that give you adrenaline burst and are informative at the same time. It is perfect if you are a parent of teenagers (they’ll love it!), adventure seeker or anyone who’s up for a bit of a different way to see London. You just need to meet three requirements: be older than 10, taller than 3ft11in (120cm) and weigh less than 21 stones (133kg). That’s all!


Once you are briefed you get your kit and get hooked on to a safety line. So if you slip you can’t slide further than 1m back. The walkway is made of rubber so your feet get a good grip. Once at the top you get released and can spend around 30 min taking photos and soaking up the views. There are signs around the edge marking the key landmarks so you know what you are seeing. The descent is on the other side of the Dome and you know you’ve reached the bottom when you see ‘I conquered the O2′ sign!
