Ticket Alert: See The Skyline From London's New Zipline

Calling all adrenalin junkies: you'll be able to get your fix from a new zipline coming to London this summer.

For 12 weeks, Zip World London will pitch up in Archbishop's Park, next to Lambeth Palace, between Westminster and Lambeth bridges on the south bank. Those brave enough to have a go will launch themselves from a tower 35 metres above the ground, before making the 225 metre descent back to earth.

It claims to be "the biggest, fastest city zipwire in the world". We're promised a chance to see the likes of the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, the Gherkin and The Shard — although from the mock-up above, it looks like you'll be travelling away from, rather than towards, most of London's skyline landmarks.

Either way, please nobody tell Boris Johnson.

Zip World London opens on 6 July for 12 weeks. Tickets need to be booked in advance (and will probably sell out), costing £22.50 for an adult/£16.50 for a child.
