ArcelorMittal Orbit

Hackney Wick

The distinctive looping structure of the ArcelorMittal Orbit is an icon of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The striking steel tower became a perfect symbol of the brilliance and originality of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Visitors making the ascent are rewarded with breath-taking views over the park and 20 miles beyond. Britain's largest sculpture was fashioned from 2000 tonnes of steel (this is the same as 265 double-decker buses). Steel is the only metal that is infinitely recyclable and therefore more than 60% of the steel used in the ArcelorMittal Orbit was recycled from old cars, washing machines and steel building materials.
Family friendly and accessible with buggies!

    We visited this incredible landmark in the run up to Christmas and I was slightly dubious about how accessible it would be with 2 hyperactive toddlers but it was fantastic! The staff were warm and friendly and it was totally accessible with a buggy too. A really brilliant family day out with a difference. It's also got a lovely cafe serving local sourced produce. I will definitely be going again.
