O2 Walkway To Open In June

A walkway on top of the O2 in North Greenwich is to open next month.

Previously dubbed The Skywalk and apparently now rebranded as 'Up at The O2", the attraction will see climbers kitted out with harnesses and safety gear and led on a 90-minute trip up and over the dome, where they'll enjoy "spectacular 360 degree views of London from our viewing platform in the centre".

Unlike the nearby cable car, work on Up at The O2 has mostly flown under the radar of publicity and media coverage, allowing them to beat their dangle-based rival to those all important tourist pounds. There's a sneak peek at how it looks in this aerial image of the O2 by Jason Hawkes.

Tickets go on sale for O2 customers from today, priced at £22, and for the general public from 30 May.
