The Arcelormittal Orbit invites you and your students to experience new perspectives at Britain’s tallest sculpture.
The distinctive red looping structure is the icon of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, standing taller than the Statue of Liberty, it gives visitors breathtaking views over the landmark 2012 sporting venues and 20 miles into the distance.
