Meet your friendly instructors and get kitted out with climb suit, boots and harness. Become a true urban mountaineer. Ascend the incredible structure of the O2 Arena, an iconic London landmark, and cross the walkway suspended 52 meters in the air. Once at the top, pause to take in panoramic views over Greenwich, the Olympic Park, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Canary Wharf and The Shard. Climb during the day and enjoy the clearest views for miles around, climb at sunset for a romantic experience, or opt for the twilight climb and marvel at the twinkling city lights below the twinkling stars. Nervous? Don’t be. Experienced, professional guides will be with you every step of the way.
I'd recommend it, It's the 2nd time I've done this with my kid's on separate occasions though. The kids and I enjoyed the climb. Once at the top there's not a lot to see but it's OK for the experience. The climb is great but lacks a lot once at the top.

Experience the south coast’s most spectacular view. Spinnaker Tower stands at 170 meters tall, offering breath-taking 23-mile views over Portsmouth Harbour, the city, the Solent, the South Downs and the Isle of Wight. The iconic landmark boasts a high-speed lift and three sky-high viewing decks. Venture across the thrilling glass ‘Sky Walk’ at 100 meters above sea level; discover stories behind the surrounding sites with informative touchscreen displays; try vertigo-inducing virtual reality, breath in the view from the open air ‘Sky Garden’; relax in The Clouds with a coffee, a glass of bubbly or a decadent High Tea; and enjoy delicious meals made with locally sourced ingredients in the Waterfront Cafe.
The views were great, not quite sure what the purpose of the sky garden is though. Enjoyed our visit and the good weather just enhanced that. The staff were helpful and friendly and there was lots of information about what you could see. The toilet was a bit smelly. The sky garden was disappointing, rather sad wilted plants and artifical grass and the views were not much better than what we'd seen 2 levels down
