Das am 1. Januar 2000 eröffnete The O2 ist ein von der Anschutz Entertainment Group betriebener Entertainment-Komplex im Londoner Stadtbezirk Greenwich, Vereinigtes Königreich. Es liegt am Blackwall Point, dem nördlichsten Punkt der Greenwich Peninsula. Der Komplex beinhaltet die O2 Arena. Das bis 2005 Millennium Dome genannte Bauwerk ist mit 365 Metern Durchmesser und bis zu 52 Metern Höhe der größte einzeln stehende Baukörper in Großbritannien und der größte Kuppelbau der Welt. Seine Abmessungen symbolisieren die Anzahl der Tage und Wochen eines Jahres. Seine zwölf jeweils 100 Meter hohen Masten weisen auf die Monate eines Jahres und auf das Zifferblatt einer Uhr hin. Der Nullmeridian von Greenwich verläuft unmittelbar in der Nähe der Halle. Die Dachhaut aus Kunststoffen soll mehrere Jahrzehnte überdauern, sie ist jedoch an einer Stelle durchbrochen, um einer überbauten Abluftöffnung des Blackwall-Tunnel Raum zu geben. Der Entwurf dieser riesigen Stahlseilkonstruktion stammt von dem Architekten Richard Rogers, der auch das Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris entworfen hat, und der Tragwerksplaner war Ian Liddell und Projektingenieur bei Buro Happold Paul Westbury. 2007 wurde das Mobilfunkunternehmen O2 Namenssponsor. Im Februar 2017 wurde der Vertrag bis in das Jahr 2027 verlängert. Das Unternehmen zahlt dafür knapp 148 Mio. Euro.

Good fun! Really professional. We arrived early and they put us on the earlier slot. The intro was good and interesting. And the gentlemen who took us up (Gary/Smithy) was excellent. Felt safe and happy at all times. Would definitely recommend! :)

Bought this experience day for a friend and I've gotta say it was a lot of fun. Great views of London from the top and if you're scared of heights, don't worry, it really doesn't seem that high when your actually up there. Our guide was Craig who was super friendly and funny and helped us out when we got stuck. Just be prepared for the steep descent on the way down!

Climbed up the o2 and it was such an amazing experience! Ross our guide was great he knew where there were lots of sights to point out. Defo an experience i would recommend for those thrill seekers! would do it all again!

I had a really fun time doing this with a couple of friends. There are some stunning views from the top there. The descent is more harrowing than the ascent. If only they'd put in a giant slide...

Went up on the 25th November at a 2.30pm climb and it was absolutely fantastic! Great value for money, and thoroughly enjoyed by both myself and my partner. I am both scared of height and recovering from a knee injury and I found it fine to climb as well. Both the guides, Rory and Aaron were amazing, and looked after everyone incredibly well. Really great afternoon and will be recommending it to all of our friends and family, thank you!

Very safe most importantly and good fun especially once your at the top. Nice views, would recommend checking the weather before you go. Gloves for the hike are £8, hat & gloves £12 and you can buy pictures of your climb but you are allowed to bring a phone to take selfies once at the top so would recommend just doing that

Such an amazing experience! Staff are super friendly and helpful. I have been lucky to do it during the day and at night and I much preferred the day!

A great experience! Really nice guide/climber and we had a very small group of four which made it nice. Very steep in some places, but you're secured on at all times when climbing, and grippy shoes are supplied. We were allowed to take a compact camera and phone up with us.

We really enjoyed our sunset climb. I was nervous as I do not like heights. But Sara our guide was funny, helpful and patient which really helped me relax and enjoy the experience. You will feel amazing.. just go for it and enjoy.

My mom and I were in London a couple of weeks ago and climbed the O2! She was freaking out beforehand but really enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun and our guide (Matt) was awesome! Visibility wasn't great due to the overcast weather, but it was still a great view of the city!

Fabulous time at up at the 02. Liam our guide throughout was great so enthusiastic as though he coukd not do enough for the customers. Thank you Liam you were professional and you made the whole experience great. We were so lucky as the rain stopped just for our climb how lucky were that! Be careful we arrived early but were not able to get on an early slot and was told to go and come back.. Great views of the City at the top. We bought our photos as they were a great keepsake from a fantastic experience. This was a birthday present and wow what a great one. Would definately do it again at a different time. We

A group of 4 of us visited this attraction at the O2. We got the climb and dine experience and upgraded to get a glass of champagne each at the top. The climb itself is great fun and the tour guide stopped us at various points on the way up and down to point out different sights of London. We also got to stop at the top for pictures. The tour guide was really nice and was willing to take group pictures at the top. She even got everyone to sing a chorus of Happy Birthday for one of our party. All in all, an excellent experience and one which I would do again.

My wife and I just did the walk yesterday and it was amazing. Our guide was Matt Smith "with the shorts" and he was so much fun. Great sense of humour and very friendly. He knew what he was doing and gave everyone particular attention. At the viewing area he helped evwryone with photos and gave some great information about London and what was visible. Absolutely loved it and Matt was great company.
Ava M | Mai 23, 2018
So much fun, our guide was really good and explained everything and helped out if anyone got stuck. She was very friendly and took photos of us up at the top. I had a great day out up at the 02 definitely a trip to remember

Good fun way to spend a day. As long as you can walk unaided I think most people will be fine. Its not too scary either as even though you're high up it always feels safe. Plus you can enjoy one of the many restaurants nearby after.

I went for the sunset walk and got some great pics looking over the horizon across most angles. I expected more of a rush for what it felt like to should be but quite rightly safety was paramount. Best to go at quieter times so you have better chance of not being photobombed. Quite good value for money given the uniqueness of what you’re doing and similar activities on London.

A great experience enjoyed by all the family. Also a huge thank you to Stefan who helped our grandson overcome his initial fears. He stayed with him and helped him to the top. We know have a young man who is proud of his achievement. Once again many thanks Stefan.

An unforgettable experience from the moment I walked in, right till the end. Natalie was our guide for the 11:30 climb 26/7/18. After the induction we got our climbing gear on and up we went. The climb wasn't difficult, but it was a good workout anyway. The view at the top was good, despite it being really hot. The guide really looked after everyone and made sure everyone had a good experience.
