n the top of the most popular entertainment venue in London, 52 meters above ground, climbing gear on and enjoying the best view of the city of London, this is definitely one exciting and challenging experience.

Being the climb pretty steep, the first step of this experience goes though the health and safety and the recommendation to pay attention to the safe instruction on the signs.

The second step is to wear, on top of your cloths, the climbing gear. It’s mostly made of Velcro and zips to help you putting it on. You also have to wear flat shoes with a good grip, that are otherwise provided from the staff.

All you have to do know is climb, safely secured to a safety wire and with at least one hand on the handrail, the top of the O2 Arena and enjoy the amazing view.
