Review by Alice Joslin
Really enjoyed both the climb and the view from the shard. Really made for a nice treat day out.
02 September 2019
Enjoy the best views in London from two unforgettable vantage points with entry to The View from the Shard and Up at The O2 Climb for Two.
Head up to 800ft above the capital, almost twice as high as any other viewing point in London, for views stretching for 40 miles out over the city and beyond. Pick out famous landmarks down below, with unobstructed 360-degree vistas. Be sure to head to Level 72, up to the open top viewing platform for a truly memorable experience.
At London’s O2, you’ll follow your Climb Guide on a 365m journey to the summit, 52m above ground level. Fetching climb suit donned, and strapped into your harness, you’ll make your way to the walkway and begin your ascent. Breathe in the unique views and grab a photo or two before heading back down to earth.
Entrance for two adults to The View from the Shard must be pre-booked so you can arrive and make your way to the attraction, shortening the time spent in queues.
The two of you can enjoy your entire experience at your leisure, queue and crowd free with no time restriction on your visit, although most people stay for up to an hour. You will be able to take the elevator up to floors 68 and 69 and if you’re feeling super adventurous you can go all the way to level 72 which offers you a view like no other. Level 72 is an open top viewing platform, so you’ll feel free as a bird at 800ft.
The entrance to Up at The O2 is just to the left of The O2’s main entrance, and it’s here you’ll check in 15 minutes before your pre-booked time. Once everyone’s arrived (you’ll be heading up in a group), it’ll be time for a short safety briefing and grabbing your climbing gear – suit, shoes and a safety harness.
From there it’s up, up and away, heading to the summit of The O2 dome before a short stop at the top and heading back down the other side. You can take pictures with your phone at the summit, but there’s no photography on the way up or down – because you might drop your phone otherwise!
