Highlights of the Tour

Full Tour Description:
With its visionary architecture and sweeping views of London from the east, the Arcelormittal Orbit is a show-stopping venue for any occasion. You will experience Britain's largest sculpture and London’s latest must-see attraction. Located in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, this striking steel tower is the symbol of the 2012 Olympic and Para-Olympic Games.
After meeting and greeting your Tour Guide, you will enjoy a brief Tour of the ground floor and picture gallery history of this incredible and inspiring building.
The next stop is where we’ll ascend up this 114-meter tall tower to the viewing platform, where you will be amazed by the beautiful and majestic designs of London’s skyline. You’ll have breath taking views of up to 20 miles over London, giving you the opportunity to spot the city’s most iconic buildings:
- The Shard
- BT Tower
- The Gherkin
- Big Ben
- Canary Wharf
- The O2 Arena
- West Ham and other football grounds
- You can also spot some of the latest additions to the city skyline, like the Walkie Talkie and the Cheesegrater!
The Cutting-Edge Technology
Use cutting-edge *I-View (interactive screens)* to get a closer look at the sights from the top of the Orbit! This innovative technology also tells the fascinating story of the ArcelorMittal Orbit and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. You can even turn the horizon on its head by flipping the specially-designed concave mirrors on the Upper Platform, for a totally new perspective on London.
After your guided Tour on the ground floor, you will have 30 minutes to view and take lifetime photos and recordings from the top. When the viewing has come to an end, join your Tour guide for the group descent and welcome to the Podium Restaurant for your festive lunch. For the brave, you can descend the 455 stairs looping around the sculpture, which will lead you back to earth for your drinks at reception and join other members of your group! This experience costs £5 (not included in the price.)
Meet your dedicated Guide at 12.45 at the reception area of the Orbital tower.
