Want to do something unique this May bank holiday? We have the perfect way to wind down, make a difference and experience something truly memorable!

Join us as we abseil the UK’s tallest sculpture, the Orbit. Take on this thrilling challenge and together, we can raise vital funds to fight the world's two biggest killers; heart and lung disease.

After the huge success of last year’s abseil, which raised an incredible £17,000, we’re doubling the number of places on offer to 70, to raise even more for our hospitals!

Abseilers will witness a breath-taking panorama of up to 20 miles across and capture an exclusive bird’s eye view of the iconic sporting venues within the park below.

So, if you’d like to do something fun this bank holiday and make a difference to the lives of our patients, please register today to snap up your place.

What does it involve?

Abseiling down the ArcelorMittal Orbit will be an experience you'll never forget.

Highly experienced abseil instructors will look after you every step of the way. They will kit you up with equipment that is regularly inspected and maintained, and look after every aspect of your safety. A triplicate safety system is in place for added reassurance. 

You will experience the most spectacular views of London, while dangling in free space, 80 metres above the ground! Enjoy the many sights of London’s famous landmarks including The Gherkin, St Paul’s, Canary Wharf, Wembley Stadium and The O2 Arena.

Can I bring people to support me?

Of course – bring along family and friends for a fab day out! Anyone not taking part is welcome to watch from below or one of two viewing platforms. There is also plenty to see and do just by wandering round the park.

Where will my money go?

All funds raised will go towards supporting the health and welfare of patients at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals, whether it be providing state-of-the-art equipment and new facilities or supporting cutting-edge research into heart and lung conditions. You can even decide which appeal you'd like your funds to go towards and we can help you decide, if you are unsure. 

Anything else I need to know?

Minimum age: 14 years old (under 18s require parental consent) 
Minimum height: 1.2 metres
