For those who missed out on getting tickets, you could get another chance to peek at all the action but you’ll need to have a head for heights as you’ll be 55m (180ft) in the air!
A platform that is due to be opening on top of the O2 Arena will offer stunning views across the Olympic Park and for some will provide a fun, alternative to watching the Games. Anyone wishing to take part in the ‘Up at the O2 Tours’ will be fitted with climbing gear and asked to clamber up a 30 degree slope to reach the platform in Greenwich, South East London.
Before taking part in the climb, participants will first learn more about how the O2 was built and find out about its musical history at Base Camp. To get the group in the mood for climbing, a soundtrack will be played as they are kitted out with climbing gear and given a safety briefing. Once they have reached the platform, participants will be rewarded with views of the capital including Olympic Park, Thames Barrier, the Shard, Canary Wharf and The Thames. Bosses are hoping to open the walkway early this summer.
