About
Thrill-seekers looking for views across London shouldn't bother with tours that whisk you to a viewing platform in an elevator, when you can hike up the outside of the O2. During this O2 climb, you strap into a harness and climb all the way to the roof. At the top dome, enjoy panoramic views from Canary Wharf to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, before the climb back down.

Thank you to Ruby for taking us on our trip over the O2 today. She made the experience an absolute joy, a great combination of humour, knowledge and being very helpful.

Our son was slightly nervous on the way down but she was great talking to him about Harry Potter to distract him

Though the trip is not cheap as a family (kids, 11 and 13) we had a great time and would recommend it.

An amazing experience! The staff were all really friendly and welcoming. As recommended arriving 15 minutes before your actual time climb, is really important and enabled the experience to be smooth. The entire experience is over in around 90 minutes, the perfect amount of time, as it’s not rushed but also not too slow.

Our instructor was Devon and he was incredibly informative and prepared us excellently for the climb. Throughout the climb he ensured the whole group were kept together at a good pace and provided the group with different ways to climb down if you’re a bit worried about heights which was taken up by many on the climb. He he was an excellent instructor! Once at the top, the views were simply breathtaking! An amazing 360 view of the entire city that cannot be beaten. When at the top you have around 15 minutes and can take as many shots on your phone as you like. Again, Devon was great here as he took plenty of photos for us and worked his way around the group to make sure everyone was happy and getting photos themselves.

They also have a photographer who took some amazing shots, at the beginning and end of the experience. We were able to purchase some of those in the shop afterwards.

Would highly recommend the experience to anyone, at £30 it’s a very affordable and fun experience.

If you're thinking about booking, then do it!

We arrived 15 minutes before and were given the insurance form where you have to fill out shoe sizes and sign for any minors. We were then called for our time slot, and we met out guide Jack, watched a quick video and then we were given shoes, harness' and gilets if required. Outside as a group we went over how to put on the harness and then after going up the steps, had a few photo opportunities. The climb is steep but not long and I recommend doing a sunset climb as the changing colours of the sky were amazing. At the top you are left free to walk around and take photos before descending to the other side. Jack was a great guide, kept my 16 year old step-sister entertained with stories and jokes too. We bought a few of the photos at the shop at the end as these were good quality and not that expensive.

I'm glad I did it, that's all

Matt our guide was excellent. Although he's probably done the same trip 1000's of times, his jokes were still delivered like he believed in them and his care and attention was admirable. He was knowledgeable and it was as if he was doing just for us.

The experience itself was OK, but based on Matt himself and the good quality equipment, but it was not even worth half the standard price. The views are very disappointing. It's basically flats and offices, with a obscured view of the Naval College and long distance Greenwich Observatory.

The worst bit was the customer service behind the scenes was deplorable.

If we'd booked through a variety of their agents, we would pay exactly the same price, but crucially with the option to rearrange and/or cancel for a FULL refund within 24hours.

However, booking direct there is no such option. We paid the premium Saturday rate, but after my wife fell over, attending casualty the Thursday beforehand and couldn't walk for a few days, we tried to postpone. They said we couldn't, but after pleading, they agreed to charge us EXTRA to rearrange, (which was apparently a very special favour and they were under no obligation to perform such a daring feat)!

To add insult to injury, we didn't get any refund when we went on the Friday, which is much cheaper.

We went to the 02 not actually expecting too much as to be honest, we are both in our early thirties and it didn’t seem that high.

We were really pleasantly surprised that this was the highlight of our trip to London. Really fun, great views, challenging and we got some fab pictures.

Throughout this Covid time, we are a bit unsure about what is allowed and what is not and I would say that our guide Max made us feel very looked after with their policies and procedures to do with this as well as personal safety. Didn’t make anything boring either. Really engaging!

We got shoes and gilets which allowed us to take our phones up as they had zip pockets. I would recommend clothing that is Warm for the twilight climb as it was nippy up there in the evening so a hoody or sweatshirt is a must :) And ladies, go for a ponytail or have hair in your mouth the whole time haha!

The climb is actually pretty steep. I was surprised that it was challenging but defo not out of my comfort zone. Just a bit different than I imagined. Certainly not something that someone fit and healthy couldn’t do. It’s about 15/20 mins to climb up to the platform and we stuck together as a group and our guide made sure we all felt safe and kept together.

The platform is large and Max helped take photos of every single group so got some great shots! We were so grateful and you could see the twinkling lights for miles! Such a pretty way to see London in the evening! I would firmly recommend doing this at night. The champers was a lovely touch and made a great photo. Stayed up there for about 15 mins maybe more and then descended.

At the end there is a gift shop and you can buy any photos they professionally took however we just used our own which was fab!

Great experience and would firmly recommend for couples and kids alike! Fun fun fun!

Firstly, I would like to thank our guide, Rebecca Halt, who made this such an enjoyable experience for my grandson and myself. She not only put us completely at ease and full of confidence; she made it fun and created a real sense of adventure and achievement.
Rebecca gave us lots of interesting facts when we got to the top and pointed out many things that were fascinating.
The photos taken at different points on the climb were amazing and I never like staged photos - so well done to the photographers. I bought the souvenir package which at £30 for 3 photos in presentation booklets, 2 keyring photos and all photos on a digital download, I though was good value.

We did the O2 climb to belatedly celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.

The weather forecast wasn’t great but as we arrived early we decided to ask if we could climb in an earlier group to try and take advantage of the sunshine. This was accommodated with no issues, so we were able to climb while the sun was out which was great!

We loved the experience and even though the climb itself isn’t particularly challenging we found it very enjoyable and a fun experience. Our tour guide Matt was fun and knowledgeable and took time to make sure everyone had the photos they wanted at the top.

Only quibble was £8 each for the tiniest glass of champagne...felt a bit steep!

Would recommend this to anyone - we will bring our kids to do it once they’re old enough.

Absolutely loved our climb today. It wasn’t as nerve wracking as many imagine. The first section is quite physically demanding but over really quickly. Some of the group weren’t sure about being able to see under the viewing platform as it’s a metal grid but it’s not that high off the O2 roof. It doesn’t feel that high when your at the top. Boris was a fabulous guide really interesting facts to share and we felt really safe with him in charge. It’s something different to experience and I would certainly recommend it to everyone

We received a really informative safety briefing. The start and finish are very steep so suggest you swap your shoes for the shoes they provided as they offer huge grip on the route. They also provide a gilet, jacket or coat depending on the weather.
Very informative guide who made sure he spoke to everyone on the way up to make sure they were ok. He also has huge local knowladge and was able to answer lots of question.
I am usually ok with heights but did have a bit of a wobble a couple of time, but I think that was becaue of the heavy wind on the day I went. But you are locked into the cable until you reach the viewing platform at the top so it is very safe.
Definatly recomend this.

I was super impressed with everything in this experience. Mainly the staff were excellent. The tour guide George was very engaging, very knowledgeable and looked out for everybody. The prices including a cheeky champers on the roof was really reasonably priced. Loads of photo opportunities. Well worth a trip.
