Britain’s largest piece of public art, the striking steel sculpture was developed as an iconic feature at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, attracting 30,000 visitors during the London 2012 Games. At 114.5 metres, ArcelorMittal Orbit provides spectacular views over the vast Olympic Park, East London and the City via two viewing platforms.
The structure reopened as a visitor attraction on 5 April 2014 with the launch of the south of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which is being transformed into a beautiful new open space for London complete with meadows, wetlands and waterways.
It provides an exciting new addition to the London Pass, a convenient, easy-to-use card which helps visitors to save both money and time on their London sightseeing.
“The ArcelorMittal Orbit attracted a great deal of attention during the Olympics and became a distinctive and much-loved symbol of the creative, enterprising spirit of the Games,” said Kat Hardman, Product Manager for the London Pass.
“We are confident it will be a very popular attraction for London Pass customers.”
ArcelorMittal Orbit joins a range of top London attractions including Westminster Abbey, ZSL London Zoo and the Tower of London. With a range of additional special offers, the London Pass makes for a perfect day out for less.
