ArcelorMittal Orbit & The Slide – Overview
Revel in the sights of the UK’s tallest sculpture – The ArcelorMittal Orbit. You’ll get views of Alexandra Palace to the north and Epping Forest to the east.

An exhilarating dash to the bottom on the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide at 584ft (178m) long and 249ft (76m) high!
Before you ascend the tower, marvel at Anish Kapoor’s unique red lattice structure as it twists and turns above you. At a staggering 80m above the ground, the inside platform and the outside observation walkway of the ArcelorMittal Orbit will give you a fabulous viewing experience. In addition to the famous London Stadium located next door. You’ll see five football stadiums and some of London’s most famous landmarks.
