For the active father

Challenge him to climb the O2

There’s no lift, no escalator and no-one to carry you. This is an experience that gets your blood pumping and your head in the great outdoors. It’s what they call Urban Mountaineering and at Up at The O2, it’s what they do best. As an explorer, you’ll ascend all the way to the top of The O2 via a walkway, suspended 52m above ground level. Kitted out with your climb suit, you’ll be every inch the urban mountaineer with a killer photo opportunity and landmark spotting at the top!

Location: Peninsula Square, London SE10 0DX

Tickets: From £25 per adult, as well as a range of children and teens tickets available here.
