Up at The O2

As a general rule, you can complete the climb if you can walk unaided. Call 020 8463 2680. Or email boxoffice@upattheo2.co.uk to discuss your trip. We also run wheelchair climbs.

Wheelchair climbs

Wheelchair climbs take place from late Spring to early Autumn on weekday mornings. It takes up to 3 hours. The Wheelchair Climb can accommodate 1 wheelchair user and up to 9 friends and family members, including a personal assistant/carer. Tickets are from £30 each; the personal assistant/carer climbs for free.
You’ll get a special wheelchair that you’ll need to move yourself into. If you can’t, a personal assistant or family member can help.

A full room tracking hoist is available, but you’ll need to bring your own sling. Up at The O2 staff aren’t allowed to help with the transfer between chairs.
You’ll climb with four guides who will use a pulley system to help you up and down. On the way down, you’ll descend backwards.
