The ArcelorMittal Orbit is the perfect destination for school groups of any age. Let your students admire breath-taking views of London from the UK`s tallest sculpture, or let them experience the adrenaline of riding the world`s tallest, longest and fastest tunnel slide. Depending on their age, needs and abilities, we offer you the flexibility to create the best day out for your group within the amazing grounds of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
We offer teachers a range of free educational resources, specifically designed to allow students to learn outside the classroom. Our aim is to deliver an experience which is both educational and entertaining. These resources, downloadable from our website (see below), cover key stages 1- 4 in a range of subjects, including science, geography, and art and design.
Additional free educational resources and tour trails are available from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park website. The Park is often referred to as London`s newest outdoor classroom, and there are plenty of opportunities to customise your day based on your educational needs and academic curriculum.
The Podium Bar & Kitchen, located just opposite the ArcelorMittal Orbit Our has a number of bespoke menu options, tailored specifically for schools. We offer a set school menu inclusive of a main course, a dessert and a squash from only £7.95.
Let your pupils learn how the area was transformed to host the 2012 Olympic Games and what the future holds. Stroll past beautiful gardens and waterways, the London Stadium, the London Aquatics Centre, the Copper Box Arena and the Lee Valley VeloPark. Walks are guided by professional Blue Badge Guides. A series of subject based walks are also available.
The tour of the London Stadium has a wealth of information, audio and videos that can be used as an educational tool and enhance the value of your school trip. School groups will get to visit the site of the London 2012 games and learn how the stadium was transformed as the new home of UK Athletics and West Ham United.
