A few weekends back Ian & I climbed the O2 (aka the Millennium Dome)! We hadn't realised it was an attraction in London until we happened to come across a good deal for it on the O2 priorities app.
At first I was a little nervous as we signed health & safely forms but once we had our briefing and got our climbing gear on I was raring to go (we wore special walking shoes plus a harness which was attached to the safety rail). The climb at first was challenging enough to get your heart rate up with a fairly steep incline, however it got easier and easier as we reached the top.
It was lovely and sunny when we reached the viewing platform, we could see Canary Wharf, the Thames Barrier, the Emirates Cable Cars and the Olympic Helter Skelter. The view wasn't as amazing as we had hoped as Canary Wharf blocked the most iconic London buildings (I guess we were standing on most iconic sight near by!).
After climbing back down the O2 we took a wonder inside and were amazed by the amount of restaurants and bars there. We decided to make an afternoon of it and stayed for a little dinner which was nice.
Have you climbed the O2 before? What did you think of it?
