Flash Briefing
What: Up at The O2
Up at The O2 has announced it will officially reopen its doors on 4th July offering a more intimate and memorable experience than ever before and with enhanced health and safety measures in place. In line with social distancing guidelines, each climb has been reduced to less than half the capacity previously in place (from 30 to 10 people), giving a more exclusive experience to visitors. Up at The O2 is an exhilarating 90 minute experience that takes you on a guided expedition over the roof of The O2 via a fabric walkway. Suspended 2m above the surface of The O2 roof, the walkway is 52m above ground level and 380m long. At its steepest point the walkway has an incline of 28° on the way up and 30° on the way back down and has a slight bounce to it to mirror the surface of the tent. Before you climb, you'll meet your Climb Guide who'll take you through everything you need to know and give you a climb suit, shoes and a safety harness. At the summit, there is an observation platform where you can take in spectacular views of London.  FAQs: Book here:

What: Emirates Air Line
Take to the air on London's only cable car and enjoy a truly unique experience in east London.

Emirates Air Line crosses the River Thames between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks, just five minutes from the O2 by North Greenwich Tube station. Cabins arrive every 30 seconds and flights are approximately 10 minutes each way. North Greenwich is a bustling tourist spot, ideal for a day trip out with family or friends. There is a wide variety of things to do and see with sightseeing attractions such as the Cutty Sark and local history spots like the National Maritime Museum. You could also walk part of the Thames path and see the Thames Barrier. From Royal Docks you can visit Newham City Farm, the Museum of London Docklands and the ExCeL.
