London ArcelorMittal Orbit Abseil

Scale new heights and abseil the ArcelorMittal Orbit

Picture yourself standing 376ft high on the edge of one of the most iconic structures in London, looking out over one of the most famous panoramas in the world. Then imagine leaning back, hearing the wind, taking the strain and feeling the rush as you lower yourself over the edge.

On the day, expert abseil professionals will provide you with a comprehensive safety briefing, so no previous experience is needed. All the specialist equipment required to take on a challenge of this magnitude will also be provided.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit was designed by Turner-Prize winning artist Sir Anish Kapoor  and is a truly amazing and unique venue set within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It is 22 metres taller than the Statue of Liberty and almost six times taller than the Angel of the North.

The London panorama you can see from the top includes iconic buildings such as The Shard, Big Ben, The Gherkin, St Paul’s, Canary Wharf, Wembley Stadium and the world-famous sporting venues of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
