Up At The O2

The O2 arena is not just an entertainment venue, it is also an iconic building.
Who would have thought the disaster that was the ‘Millennium Dome’ would become a landmark that would host Music, Sport, Comedy, a number of family events and the 2012 Olympic games?

Now this monumental landmark has its very own attraction- you can climb the icon that is the ‘Up at The O2’ walk.
I was lucky enough to endure the 90 minute climb, alongside a few of my colleagues.
Having previously undertaken a similar excursion whilst in Australia, the Sydney Bridge Climb, I was eager to go up and see how ‘Up at The O2’ compared.

I’m so glad that the day we went up there, the sun was shining down on us. What was impressive was that as you’re walking it feels like you’re on a bouncy castle, emulating the idea that the O2 arena is a tent. What a creative idea, it definitely made a real difference.
Once you have got to the top there is a lookout point, that has some descriptions of local landmarks that you can see. You are generally free to do as you want. It’s very impressive- pretty breathtaking on a nice day.
The journey down was my least favourite part as it’s very steep. I felt like I had to concentrate a great deal on the way down. It just didn’t flow as well as the walk up.

I would definitely urge anyone and everyone to take the walk. I have promised a number of friends that I will undertake the walk again.

If you’re on O2 there are generally always offers on Priority Moments, where you can get 15% off your ticket. Although be sure to check out the website for the list of dates as I am pretty sure Up at The O2 will close for the winter months.

    I would *love* to do this, but not sure I’d be allowed on medical grounds. Sounds amazing, though!
