Return Details

Make your way to The O2, located near the North Greenwich Station tube stop, and find the Up the O2 Basecamp. 

Meet your experienced climbing guide and group of fellow thrill seekers. Listen to a safety briefing and orientation to the 170-foot (52-meter) structure that is home to a variety of restaurants and entertainment options, and is the world's busiest music venue. Get fitted for a climb suit, boots, harness, and latch. 

After the briefing, latch into the safety system and begin the steep ascent, which reaches up to 30 degrees. Make it to the top of the dome for 360-degree views over London, including both the north and south of the winding River Thames. See the historic grounds of Greenwich, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf. You're not done yet; the descent is part of the thrill.

Your experience ends safely back at the base camp.

Although I am scared of heights, everyone at UptheO2 reassured me and stayed by my side during the climb. I’ve definitely conquered my fear and am already planning to climb again so I can really take in the spectacular views. The knowledge of the people who work here is second to none. They are welcoming, informative and extremely funny.
Not as hard as you think!
