The ArcelorMittal Orbit is the perfect destination for school groups of any age. Let your students enjoy breath-taking views from the 80m high viewing platforms or let them challenge their classmates to a 40 second descent down the world`s tallest, longest and fastest tunnel slide.
Pupils can get up close to London’s landmarks with innovative and interactive touchscreens that allow them to zoom into the view and learn more about the city, and immerse themselves in a collection of distinctive London sounds playing through the speakers on the journey down the 455 steps winding way around the sculpture.
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.
Your safety is our top priority, so we’ve put in place specific measures to make the venue COVID-secure. All visitors must wear a face covering indoors and to ride The Slide. There’ll be a non-invasive temperature check on arrival and the lift up to the viewing platforms is restricted to each visiting party. Once inside, you’ll be guided through a one-way system to maximise social distancing. The entire venue is deep-cleaned every night, with ‘high-touch’ areas being cleaned throughout the day. The Slide protective equipment, such as the helmet and elbow pads, is sanitised between each use and there are hand sanitiser stations throughout the venue.
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 Last Drop, located just opposite the ArcelorMittal Orbit, 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 London 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 London Stadium has a wealth of information, audio and videos that can be used as an educational tool to enhance the value of your school trip. School groups will get to visit the site of the London 2012 Olympic Games and learn how the Stadium was transformed as the new home of UK Athletics and West Ham United.
