Visit the ArcelorMittal Orbit to explore the UK’s tallest sculpture, and see London differently.

Your visit starts at the base of the sculpture, exploring Anish Kapoor’s red lattice tower as it twists and turns above you. The lifts will whisk you 80m up to the viewing platforms and their distinctive panorama of London.


At the summit, there is an amazing 360-degree view of London and the waterways, green spaces and iconic sporting arenas that make up Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Memories of 2012 come flooding back as you look down on undulating roof of Zaha Hadid’s London Aquatics Centre, the Lee Valley Velodrome and the stunning Olympic Stadium, new home of West Ham United FC.

You’ll see a host of the most iconic buildings on the city’s skyline – the Shard, the Gherkin, Big Ben, the BT Tower, Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena as well as new additions to the landscape including the Walkie Talkie and the Cheesegrater. With views of up to 20 miles, from here London’s horizon takes in Alexandra Palace to the north, Wembley Stadium to the west, the Crystal Palace transmitter to the south and Epping Forest to the east. Football fans can see five of London’s finest football grounds.

Interpret the views with interactive screens that tell the story of the ArcelorMittal Orbit and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and provide up-close information about the cityscape in front of you. Anish Kapoor’s polished concave mirrors play with your perspective and turn the horizon on its head.


You can take the lifts down to ground level, or come down the 455 stairs with their specially designed soundscape soundtrack of London echoing around you.

A visit to the ArcelorMittal Orbit is a reminder that the spirit of 2012 is still well and truly alive – and only a short journey away.
