The O2 is a large structure that was originally built to celebrate the turn of the millennium, but now it is home to London’s largest music venue, restaurants, cinema, bars and clubs.

There are different climb options available such as a Sunset Expedition, Twilight Expedition and group climbs. This is one for those with a head for heights and nerves of steel!

There’s no better way to see the city than with your adrenaline pumping as you speed down the city’s most iconic river.
Located in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the Arcelormittal Orbit is a unique experience that any thrill seeker is sure to enjoy. Arcelormittal Orbit is the world’s highest and longest tunnel slide. Sound fun? This is one adventurous option that doesn’t disappoint.

Battersea Park Go Ape
Go Ape is a large treetop adventure course, woven throughout trees and forest. Participants are given all the safety gear and information needed before being able to experience the Go Ape course. Grab your helmet and your head for heights and then get ready to work your way across rope bridges, over obstacles and down zip lines.
