Here are more fun things to do in London...

Book tickets to London's ArcelorMittal Orbit!

Your visit to ArcelorMittal Orbit starts at the base of the 2,000-tonne steel sculpture, exploring Anish Kapoor’s red lattice tower as it twists and turns above you.

Taller than the Statue of Liberty and reaching a total of 114.5 metres, the work of art towers over its surroundings, claiming the title of the tallest sculpture in the UK.

The lifts will whisk you 80 metres up to the viewing platforms and their distinctive panorama of London.

You can then challenge your friends and family to a ride down the world’s longest slide – a 40-second hair-raising experience not for the faint-hearted.

The Skyline Views tickets

At the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit will have the chance to see five football grounds, and many of London’s iconic buildings: The Shard, BT Tower, The Gherkin, Big Ben, Canary Wharf, the O2 Arena and Emirates Airline.

And with views of up to 20 miles, marvel at the sights on the horizon from Alexandra Palace in the north, Wembley Stadium to the west, Crystal Palace transmitter to the south and Epping Forest to the east.

Along with the landscape, and visionary design of the sculpture itself, visitors will be treated to interactive screens using gigapixel technology to interpret the views.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit is a distinctive emblem of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and illustrates the continuing story of that magical summer – follow in the footsteps of Her Majesty the Queen and many Olympic and Paralympic stars –ascend the ArcelorMittal Orbit – an unmissable London attraction.

The Skyline Views + The Slide tickets

Take your experience one step further.

Before you take your ride on the slide, enjoy the views from the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit. With panoramic sights that span up to 20 miles, enjoy uninterrupted views of London sights such as Canary Wharf, the arch of Wembley Stadium, the O2 Arena, Alexandra Palace, The Gherkin, St Paul’s Cathedral, The Shard and The Walkie Talkie.

When you’ve finished taking in the views, descend to the bottom in the most unique way possible, the slide! It twists and turns an impressive 12 times and includes a tight corkscrew named the ‘bettfeder’ – the German word for ‘bedspring’.

Travelling at up to 15 miles per hour and lasting for an exhilarating 40 seconds, the slide finishes with a 50 metre straight run to the ground and certain sections have ‘polycarbonate ‘windows’ for you to catch the view on the way down!

More fun awaits!

When you’re done, there’s still so much to see and do at the ArcelorMittal Orbit that you won’t want to leave! 

Once you’ve stepped down the 455 steps, used the lift or challenged yourself to slide down, you’ll have all the time you need to soak up the atmosphere of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and relax in the hospitable Last Drop Café.
