It is a unique collaboration between two of the world’s leading artists and a major new art installation for London, as well as yet another reason to visit Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – fast becoming London’s most exciting playground

Take in a totally new perspective of London with views of up to 20 miles into the city and over the parklands, waterways and world-class sporting venues of London’s newest Park, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The wave-shaped roof of the Aquatics Centre can be seen in its full glory, now the temporary spectator wings have been removed. Take a hawk’s eye view over the magnificent Stadium, the future new home of West Ham United Football Club and look down on the unique and intimate gardens of the newly landscaped south of the Park.
Looking beyond the Park, visitors to the ArcelorMittal Orbit will have the chance to see five football grounds, and many of London’s iconic buildings: The Shard, BT Tower, The Gherkin, Big Ben, Canary Wharf, the O2 Arena and Emirates Airline. Those with a keen eye will also spot new additions to the skyline, such as the Walkie Talkie and the Cheesegrater. And with views of up to 20 miles, marvel at the sights on the horizon from Alexandra Palace in the north, Wembley Stadium to the west, Crystal Palace transmitter to the south and Epping Forest to the east.
Along with the landscape, and visionary design of the sculpture itself, visitors will be treated to interactive screens using gigapixel technology to interpret the views. Learn the story of the ArcelorMittal Orbit and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (available in multiple languages) and take a closer view of the panorama using this innovative technology. Visitors can also enjoy the distinctive Kapoor designed concave mirrors that will flip your perspective and turn the horizon on its head.
