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.

  • Not our first time doing this but it has been a few years since we last climed the 02. Its a steepish climb but not too challenging. We were really lucky with the weather which was lovely and sunny....  more »
  • My mother in law had given our kids Up at the O2 vouchers for Christmas, but although they had officially run out in September, given the lockdown etc, my wife had no difficulty in extending them...  more »
  • Great experience! Staff were excellent at explaining and helping you with kit and assisting you on the climb. It rained on the way up and was a bit slippy but the staff were reassuring. Great views from the top and a really amazing experience. Easy to get to from the tube and there's loads to do at the o2 before and after your climb.
  • Very nice experience climbing the O2 arena. Nice views of the surroundings in all directions. Rachel was a very good guide with attention to safety details and sense of humor. The Climb has lots of safety precautions, so don't worry about safety. You need to be in not-bad physical shape to enjoy the climb. Pay attention to the guide for best experience.
  • Fun, light-hearted experience. I was a bit daunted before the event but when I showed up there were a fair few kids so I figured if they could do it, so could I. I went with several friends and we had a good laugh and a glass of champagne at the top. Its a nice activity taking up roughly half a day in the city!
  • Good way to see a different view of some of London's landmarks. Our guide (Nathan) was chatty and added a sense of humour that lifted the experience well beyond just a walk over a building. My 11 year old son particularly enjoyed the whole climb. Didn't give 5 stars as like many experience days it's not the cheapest thing to do if you break it down to an hourly rate but overall a great gift to give or receive.
  • I booked this for my partners birthday.. great experience all round. Very easy to book in, full safety video and talk given along with all the safety equipment. Took us just over an hour with a great opportunity to take pictures etc on the top viewing platform. Fantastic views from the top!! Great tour guide, think our lady was called Della. Kept us all in line and made sure we were 100% safe. We had pictures taken which you then had the choice to purchase afterwards. All in all highly recommend this for all ages
