ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE DAY

Up at The O2 Climbing Experience

Get strapped in and enjoy the best 360 views of London on top of The O2 arena!

Experience Days Attractions: For a totally unique day out in London that combines adrenaline-pumping adventure with breathtaking views, look no further than the Up at The O2 Experience. Join a group of explorers for a walk to remember, scaling the 380m walkway across the roof of The O2.

The experience begins on arrival at The O2, where participants will get kitted out in climbing suits and gripped shoes, before receiving a safety briefing from the instructor. Then the climb to the summit begins... the walkway is given a bouncy feel to replicate The O2 tent beneath, and is 52m tall at the highest point, providing incredible panoramic views of London all around. The climb can be booked either during the day, at sunset, or at twilight for a range of different cityscapes - from bright sunshine to twinkling stars! The whole walk takes around one hour to complete from start to finish, where you'll end on solid ground on the other side of the arena.

The Up at The O2 Climbing Experience makes a fantastic family day out in London, or a unique experience gift for adventurous individuals that will be remembered for a lifetime. Tick off a bucket list item this year and try a London activity like no other!

A great experience.

I was a little nervous about the climb as I really don't like heights, but being with the group and our instructor Sarah soon put me at ease. It was a great experience and a special time to share with my daughter, Naomi.

A London Day Out with a Difference

I climbed the O2 on Saturday and had a great time - luckily the sun came out for us! Our instructor, Sarah, was great. We got into our suits (you can choose between a suit or gilet depending on how warm you want to be) and climbing shoes and headed up to the first platform, where we had some photos taken. Then we started up the first walkway, which was surprisingly spongy under our feet. The view was amazing, you really can see everything! Once we got to the summit, we took more photos and enjoyed the view. Sarah pointed out some landmarks around us before we headed back down the other side, which was quite steep! This part is probably the scariest, although the entire climb is really a lot less daunting than it looks. Would recommend the Up At The O2 experience for anyone looking for a way to see the sights in London whilst also getting some physical exercise.

o2 Climb!

What an amazing way to spend your afternoon! I have always wanted to take part in this experience and it defiantly exceeded my expectations. Luckily we had the perfect weather for the climb, not too hot or too cold. I really underestimated the climb to the top of the o2, it looked a lot easier than I thought it would be. I was slightly out of breath when I got to the top but I do like a challenge and it was all worth it when you finally reach the top and see the amazing view of London.

The climb was incredible!

I absolutely loved the climb. It was well organised and I felt completely at ease with the equipment. The instructor was friendly and knowledgeable. The views from the top were breathtaking. I am keen to do the climb again in the summer & this time the sunset climb.

Unforgettable

Overall this experience was a fantastic way to see London like never before. The most memorable moment was being at the top and feeling a rumble beneath our feet, as there was a heavy metal gig going on below! Despite the rain, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves going both up and down. I recommend making a day of it, as the O2 itself has lots to offer for shopping, dining and other entertainment to enjoy before or after your experience.

A Lovely Festive Experience!

We happened to book our climb around Christmas time and were lucky enough to be greeted by carol singers and hot chocolate at the summit! Unfortunately, the weather was a bit drizzly so the surface was a little harder to climb, but the interesting tour guides and unusual experience make up for it. You're given a big suit and gloves that keep you very warm and protected. The view was amazing with some great picture opportunities of us in our suits!

Hot ?

I really enjoyed the experience, Hannah is a very good guide. Health and safety second to none. My only negative is there should be water at the top it was a very hot day and I was very dry by the time I had climbed up. If you can get champagne up there Im sure bottled water could be offered.

Great Fun!

Brilliant fun from start to finish! As I was doing a night climb, I opted for the jumpsuit overalls - these were awesome in themselves! My climb guide was full of fun facts and was happy to point out all of the London landmarks. It was great to see the city from a completely different perspective and the photos came out well, even in the dark!

I had a great time climbing the O2 and learnt a lot from our engaging and reassuringly non-nonsense guide, Ross. I'd highly recommend the experience to anyone who wants to see the city in another light!

Up at the O2

Great evening from start to finish. We took part in the private twilight expedition and our tour guide Ross couldn't have made us feel more at ease. The views were fantastic all the way up and at the top. Would highly recommend to anyone with a love on London and adventure!

A truly fantastic experience! We did an evening climb, and it was perfect. Seeing London lit up and learning lots of quirky facts. Our Tour guide was super enthusiastic and full of knowledge on London's skyline. Would highly recommend and go again.

Well worth a visit. The climb itself wasn't as strenuous as I expected so everyone in our group was easily able to make it to the top. Our guide Ross was great and turned the climb into an enjoyable guided tour of London's skyline. The city skyline views from the top are incredible.

Amazing experience!

The Up at the O2 Experience is definitely worth a visit. I took part in the twilight climb and it was great to see the night lights of London. Our tour guide Ross was fantastic.

O2

This was such a fun way to experience London - it's quite hard work walking up but the views at the top are worth it! Ross was a fantastic instructor, I wasn't expecting a proper tour guide but he was full of facts and stories, making the 'expedition' all the more enjoyable. Definitely recommend!
