#46 of 3,359 in Things to do in London
View London in a new way at Up at The O2. Put on a climbing suit and harness and walk across the tensile-fabric walkway to the viewing platform in the middle of the roof. From 52 m (170 ft) above the ground, you'll enjoy 360-degree views of the city and landmarks such as Olympic Park, Thames Barrier, The Shard, Historic Royal Greenwich, and Canary Wharf. The venue provides everything you need for the walk, including shoes. You might be warm under the climbing suit depending on the weather, so be sure to wear clothes you don't mind sweating in. These walks fill up quickly, so try to book in advance. Put Up at The O2 on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our London vacation planner .

  • Really nice experience, good to see London from top of o2. Whole experience takes about 90 min. Quick induction, shoes and overalls are provided along with Lockers for valuables - free of charge.
  • Was much better than I expected. I went on the sunset climb on a nice day, wonderful experience. I was also lucky to see the Harvest full moon as well on the way down.
  • Great experience. Brilliant climb and fantastic views at the top. Our guide Liam was really informative, made sure everyone was enjoying the climb and happy to take our photos at the top. Would definitely do again.
  • We went over O2 to celebrate my daughters birthday. Matt and Victoria our guides were brilliant!! They were there to support all the way and were knowledgeable and friendly! They made a fuss of my daughter and let her lead the group over!!! Well doneO2 team

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
