Are you looking for a different and original experience in London? You absolutely must visit the ArcelorMittal Orbit, a 115m high observation tower located in London’s Olympic Park, Stratford.
This steel structure, designed by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond, has a shape inspired by DNA, making it one of a kind.
Once you arrive, you can take the elevator to the top of the tower in just 32 seconds.
From there, you can explore London’s stunning skyline through the panoramic windows and admire the city’s landmarks from the outdoor observation deck, suspended 80 meters above the ground.
There are no time limits on your visit, but when you decide to hop off you’ll have three options!
The first option is the easiest and fastest: the lift, of course!
But if you’re feeling brave, you have two other adventurous options! You can descend via the 455 stairs, an experience that may not be suitable for vertigo sufferers.
I assure you it will be a breathtaking, almost terrifying experience and you will be itching to set foot on the ground!
Otherwise, you can slide down in just 40 seconds via an incredible 178m long tunnel. It will be a super fun experience, and you can also record a great memory video to share with your friends!
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience this unique London adventure at the ArcelorMittal Orbit!
