Up at The O2
Climb an icon
There’s no lift, no escalator, and no-one to carry you. This is an experience that gets your blood pumping and your head in the great outdoors.
Up at The O2 is an unforgettable expedition that offers adventurous families the chance to experience urban mountaineering with an exhilarating 90-minute climb up one of London’s most iconic landmarks. Up at The O2 are also delighted to announce that children aged as young as 9 years old can now conquer The O2 (previous age was 10).
Dressed in full explorer attire, climbers will journey to the peak of the world-renowned entertainment venue with an experienced guide on hand to talk them through every step across the 350m walkway. Families can enjoy the tremendous sense of achievement when they reach the viewing platform, just like the many famous faces that have also conquered The O2, including Ant & Dec, Rudimental, Sam Smith and 30 Seconds to Mars. Upon reaching the summit, 52m above ground level, climbers can take a moment to soak up the spectacular sights of the city.

Climb up at the O2! - 13th June, 2017
Amelia really enjoyed herself and said she felt a sense of achievement at the end. The climb is now open to age 9 upwards. It is quite hard going at times but any active or sporty 9 year old should be fine.
There were 16 of us in the group but it didn’t feel crowded, possibly because Amelia and I were at the front. We didn’t mind waiting for people to catch up as the views were so stunning.
It was a wonderful experience and one that Amelia will no doubt remember and refer to for years to come, not least because she negotiated a souvenir medal out of me at the gift shop at the end.
