London: Climb The Roof of The O2 Arena
- Duration: 1.5 hours
Meet your friendly instructors and get kitted out with climb suit, boots and harness. Become a true urban mountaineer. Ascend the incredible structure of the O2 Arena, an iconic London landmark, and cross the walkway suspended 52 meters in the air. Once at the top, pause to take in panoramic views over Greenwich, the Olympic Park, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Canary Wharf and The Shard. Climb during the day and enjoy the clearest views for miles around, climb at sunset for a romantic experience, or opt for the twilight climb and marvel at the twinkling city lights below the twinkling stars. Nervous? Don’t be. Experienced, professional guides will be with you every step of the way.
I'd recommend it, It's the 2nd time I've done this with my kid's on separate occasions though. The kids and I enjoyed the climb. Once at the top there's not a lot to see but it's OK for the experience. The climb is great but lacks a lot once at the top.
From the meeting point, start the 3-hour walking tour by heading through Green Park to Buckingham Palace, admiring the well-manicured trees and flowers along the way. At the palace, watch the world-famous Changing of the Guard Ceremony. Afterward, see other iconic London sights such as Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the London Eye, Parliament Square, and the Houses of Parliament. Next, head to the O2 Arena and get ready for a guided climb across the arena roof for scenic views of London's landmarks. Lastly, take the cable car for an easy ride across the River Thames, allowing for further amazing views of the London skyline from up high.
Tim was a great host for the 3 hour walking tour. Loads of facts and stories which were fun and great even for those who have lived or worked in London for years. Then we were on our own with tickets for the cable car (not sure why but we only had single tickets which meant queuing to buy returns in the rain). Then the walk across the dome. Thankfully it had stopped raining and the views were brilliant and well briefed. Matt was fab and the experience is all well planned. A lovely day - thank you

I would highly recommend this experience to all age groups. Another one off the bucket list! Very enjoyable climb both ways and easier than I first thought. No issues at all were encountered, even though I have a fear of heights. Max was a very knowledgeable guide in all safety aspects and of the landmarks and history. Max has great people skills with an ability to put everybody at ease so that all could enjoy the experience to the full.
It was absolutely fantastic. The views were out of this world. It makes you feel so good as you climb the o2. Our guide was really lovely and it was very easy to do what you needed to do when climbing. The first 10 minuites are a little tough but once you have done that you can really start to enjoy the experience we were very lucky as the weather was perfect I can honestly say I do not think we could have asked for a better day.
Very well organised on the day. Excellent safety briefing, and equipment brief. The brief and equipment check is about 30 mins of the 90 mins. The pre-book does explain not suitable for those who are pregnant. - but it could be hard on hip, knee and ankles.
Excellent experience with friendly guides,great views and plenty of photo opportunities to take in fabulous views of London. Our guide Ozzy was fun and genuine.
It was a great experience. Our guide,Max, was absolutely brilliant.
