Up At The O2 - Review
Up for an outdoor challenge that’ll reward you with panoramic views of London. Up at The O2 you’d be experiencing the same while getting an exhilarating view of the city. The safety measures taken to take you to the top are excellent. This being reason why standing 52 meters above ground level doesn’t seem all that scary. You have an instructor that will help you with the climb.
The Up at The O2 is highly recommended when in London. The picturesque city offers one of its best views from here. Also, visit nearby attractions in the city which are covered in London itinerary 5 days.

Up At The O2, London Reviews
Fantastic experience! definitely recommend it. Didn't have much of an expectation so was pleasantly surprised. definitely a different way to see London. Had a really friendly and helpful guide (George) who made all the difference. My sister struggled on the final descent, the guide was absolutely fantastic at dealing with her. was very impressed by his level of professionalism. Great job👍
Great thing to do, especially as it’s a little out of the ordinary. We arrived a little early for our “ascent” but couldn’t take an earlier time as it was booked up solid. There’s plenary of places around and in the 02 to grab a coffee. It’s a totally safe thing to do as you’re clipped to a safety rail all the way up and back down. You’ll get a few minutes “untethered” on the viewing platform at the top which is surrounded by guard rails. Our guide “Clare” made it fun and informative.
חוויה מהנה ביותר עם הילדים. טיפסתי יחד עם בני בן ה 10. הוא היה מאד מאד מרוצה מהחוויה הזו. לא קשה כלל. נוף מדהים - היתה ראות טובה באותו יום. כל האירוע כולל תדריך, לבישת ציוד קל וביגוד וסיום לוקח 90 דקות. המדריך והצוות מאד מקצועיים ונחמדים. מטפסים לגובה של 52 מטר על יריעה חזקה מעל האצטדיון O2 שמארח גם הופעות רבות. כל האיזור הוא של בילויים. הזמנו מראש באינטרנט ואנו טיפסנו בטיפוס הראשון שהיה פתוח בשעה 11:00 לבטח חוויה גם בלילה. מומלץ
I've been up at the O2 during sunset. The views were absolutely spectacular. I would recommend this activity of climbing to the peak of the O2 to anyone who is for and active. Activity takes about 30 minutes to complete to climb from the bottom to the top of the O2. I really enjoyed the atmosphere as there were about 10 other people that did the walk and one could also get a medal at the end.
For our 9th wedding anniversary my wife and I decided to tackle the walk up and over the O2 and add a celebratory glass of champagne at the top. You have a set time to make the walk and you get a short video presentation on what to expect. Next you get fitted for special walking shoes, a light jacket, a harness and safety device. More on that in a bit. The shoes are comfortable and the jackets and harnesses get fit to your body well. Once you are set with your gear you walk out to the starting area and up to the top of a platform where you begin your accent. There are two lanes for you to traverse. On one side all the participants walk and on the other the guide walks. They alternate sides with each group so they have equal wear. Now as for the safety device: On one end is a locking "D" ring that hooks up to two safety points of the harness and the other end slides along the cable that runs between the two lanes. In order for you to move you must actively push the cable end forward. If you don't you won't move. Also, if you let go for any reason it will lock in place on the guide cable and prevent you from sliding back or off the walkway. I will admit I am not a super fan of heights but I felt completely secure in this set up. As for the walk itself, it's a pretty steep incline to start and so you need to pace yourself. The walkway is suspended above the roof of the O2 so it will wobble a slight bit due to everyone's foot falls on it, but it's completely manageable. After you go up about half way to the top it starts to become less steep. Eventually you reach the top and it's a platform to see some amazing views of London and the surrounding area. Once you start your way down it's more of the same but you'll want to be even more careful because there will be slightly more pressure on your knees and the balls of your feet since you are going down hill. On this side you go all the way down to the pavement so the incline is greater for longer. I wish they could extend the walkway past the building when you go down to lessen the incline, or just put in a slide. Regardless, it was a really great experience and a great way to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you to our guide Liam for such a wonderful excursion and keeping us all safe at all times.
