Tis the season to be…speeding at 15mph through 12 twists and turns from 76m high on The Slide! For the first time ever you can experience the festive fun of the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide during the Christmas holidays, including Christmas Eve, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Visit during the day to enjoy crisp winter views across London or as the sun sets to watch the magical lights of the capital twinkle in the twilight sky.


Experience the magic of Christmas from 114.5m in the sky at the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit. Explore the festive (and who knows, maybe even snowy) panorama of London’s famous landmarks, including St Paul’s Cathedral, the O2 and Wembley, from our two viewing platforms, flip the horizon in Anish Kapoor’s two huge concave mirrors and enjoy the gentle 455 step descent while listening to a recorded collection of distinctive London sounds such as church bells and local markets.


And why not visit after hours to explore a Christmassy London lit up after dark as we host two limited ticket exclusive Christmas Late events on Saturday 10 and 17 December between 6pm and 8pm. Experience breathtaking views, thrills on The Slide, festive tunes, warming mulled wine and mouth-wateringly good mince pies. Tickets can be bought here (view and The Slide tickets) or here (just the view tickets).


And as children, and adults too, open their advent calendars on the countdown to 25 December, we’ve released two brand new seasonal gift voucher packages; one for the people on Santa’s naughty list and one for those on the nice list. Both will make a great addition to the presents under the tree or as a fun-filled day out during the Christmas holiday period. Click here for more information.
