Sometimes, there’s something really fun about being a tourist in your own city. For a while, I’ve wanted to do some stuff to tackle my fear of heights – I started last month with a climb up monument and a play at Tower Bridge (read it here), but this month, a friend and I decided to take it up a notch…
Even if you don’t know London, you’ll know The O2. Previously the Millenium Dome, it’s had a few iterations over the years, and now lives its life as a concert venue pretty much.
You can scale the O2, walking up and over it. You’ll head down there and get a swift safety briefing. Then they’ll show you into a room where you’ll put on a harness and be ready to click on to the safety rail.
It’s actually a hard-ish walk, because the surface of what you walk on is ‘bouncy’. Once at the top you can unclip yourself and walk around to take in all of glorious London.
Our weather was INcredible, and we could see for miles around.
After that, we caught a boat over to Greenwich, where we meandered towards the Cutty Sark and treated ourselves to a glass of a prosecco, before heading on to dance the night away.
