Pictures give an impression of the event only

Prepare yourself for a trek across the roof of The O2. Once you've reached the top you can enjoy a spectacular 360 degree view of the London skyline from the viewing platform in the centre of the roof.

The fabric walkway is 380 metres long and rises 52 metres above ground, suspended 2 metres above the surface of roof. It's steepest point has an incline of 30 degrees.

Before the climb starts you will be given a safety talk by the Climb Guide, a climb suit, some shoes (if necessary) and a safety harness. You will be attached to the climb system whilst on the walkway, but once you reach the viewing platform you will be allowed to move around freely.

Note: Their is a minimum age of 10, and a minimum height is 1.2 metres. There are also some weight and size requirements, which can be found here. There must also be one adult climber for every two climbers under the age of 18. You will not get a refund if you chicken out (seriously!). And once you've started the walk you must complete it, as you won't be allowed to walk back down by yourself.

Craig has never been on this tour (and never will -- he's too afraid!), but he does recommend riding the cable car afterwards. It's only five minutes from The O2, and will give you some more great views as it dangles and swings across the Thames.
