This Easter, Up at The O2 is teaming up with Greenwich’s Royal Observatory and Cutty Sark and hosting a series of educational talks from the top of The O2.

Climbers will be able to enjoy the stunning panoramic views while local experts, the Greenwich Guides, share curated lessons on South East London’s history. Depending on the talk you choose, they’ll be delving into Greenwich’s maritime past (and present), or the area’s significance as the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

The extended rooftop sessions will be taking place at 10:15am and 10:45am on four mornings throughout April*. Those looking to be inspired and learn more about Greenwich’s captivating past can purchase a special Summit Series ticket. The combo-ticket includes access to a full climb experience with talk and entry to either The Royal Observatory or Cutty Sark on the same day – ensuring an exciting and culturally fulfilling trip to the Royal Borough.

There’s also lots to do at The O2 while you’re visiting Greenwich, including the multi-screen Cineworld; 12-lane Hollywood Bowl; Oxygen Freejumping trampoline park; premium outlet shopping at ICON Outlet and 28 bars and restaurants.

Booking is recommended for the Summit Series to avoid disappointment (suitable for all but children must be aged 9 years or older to climb).
