Did you know that the ArcelorMittal Orbit — the majestic metal masterpiece that towers over London's Olympic Park — boasts some of the best views of London?
The record-breaking sculpture, which was designed by Sir Anish Kapoor to commemorate the 2012 Olympic Games, is home to two remarkable observation platforms that allow visitors to see up to 20 miles across the capital. And this November, our readers can check it out for half the usual price, thanks to our exclusive Skyline Views discount code.
Head 262 feet into the sky — don't worry, there's a lift — and discover breathtaking 360º degree views that extend as far as Alexandra Palace to the north, the Crystal Palace transmitter to the south, Epping Forest to the east, and Wembley Stadium to the west.
Look out for landmarks including St Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben, and the BT Tower. Use the touchscreen displays to learn more about what you're seeing, and turn your world upside-down in Kapoor's famous concave mirrors.
Our 50% discount applies to all Skyline Views bookings for November. It's redeemable on a variety of ticket types, including adult, child, student, senior, and the family of four ticket bundle (pro tip: if you've got the little ones in tow, this is the perfect setting for a supercharged game of I Spy).
Incredible views aren't all the ArcelorMittal Orbit has to offer, though. London's tallest sculpture is also home to the longest and tallest tunnel slide of its kind in the world — suitable for ages eight and over (minimum height: 1.3 metres).
If you're brave enough to whizz down this 178m beauty, you'll experience at speeds of up to 15mph, navigate a dozen nail-biting twists and turns, and enjoy blink-and-you'll-miss-it glimpses of the Olympic Park during the open sections, before being plunged into the darkness of the closed ones.
Then there's the UK's highest freefall abseil, an even more electrifying way to see the London skyline.
If you can bear to look down on the empty air beneath your feet, you'll also get a birds-eye view of the world-famous sporting venues inside the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. What better way to relive the 2012 Games than by dangling off the side of the artwork built to commemorate them?
The ArcelorMittal Orbit also boasts some brilliant food and drink packages, so you can really make a day of it, and explore more of what the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has to offer.
After your visit, we recommend heading to vibrant The Last Drop, admiring the diverse wildlife that calls the park home along the way. Here, you can refuel with coffee, cake, pizza, and pints — all available at a discount if you opt for one of the ArcelorMittal Orbit hospitality packages ahead of your visit.
