ArcelorMittal Orbit

ArcelorMittal Orbit

ArcelorMittal Orbit is the UK’s tallest sculpture. Visit the top to see panoramic views of the city and tickets are now on sale for The Slide.


See all of London from the UK’s tallest sculpture. Created by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond, the magnificent looping structure of the ArcelorMittal Orbit is an iconic symbol of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the London 2012 Games. It’s the best place to see the sweeping panorama of the city.

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.

Tickets are ON SALE NOW for London’s most talked about new attraction, The Slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit which opens in June 2016!

Visitors will descend the world’s highest and, at 178m, the world’s longest tunnel slide, as they travel down the UK’s tallest public artwork, they’ll pass through light and dark sections with London’s dramatic skyscape whizzing by!

In the 40-second trip, visitors will circle around the ArcelorMittal Orbit 12 times as they weave their way through the famous loops and curves of the iconic structure, including a tight corkscrew section names the ‘bettfeder’ – after the German word for ‘bedspring’ – and end with a 50m straight run back down to earth!

You must be at least 1.3m in height and 3 years old to use the slide.
