Orbit: The Newest View of London


Add a new perch to your list of fantastic view points in London; Orbit is open to visitors.  The stunning new work of art accenting London's Olympic park also offers the best view over the Olympic Stadium, making it a fantastic tourist attraction by car rental in London right now during the 2012 Summer Olympics Games.  

Swirly, twirly, arched and obvious, Orbit stands out and up as the tallest art structure in Britain at 115 meters high.  A visit to Orbit any time of year by London car hire will provide an excellent view of the city, a popular activity from many perspectives in London.  The city recently gained a new, ultra-tall skyscraper, The Shard, although its viewing platforms were not open in time for visitors to the London Olympics. 

Entrance tickets to Orbit during the 2012 Summer Olympics must be purchased in advance as space is limited.  Upon entrance an elevator will ride you to the 85 meter high viewing platform in just 30 seconds!  The view here over the city and Olympic park is spectacular, but you can take your time and stroll down the beautiful spiral staircase of the structure, offering excellent views from different angles of the landscape.

Save the most on your next trip to London with a cheap car rental from London Heathrow International Airport.  We also have the lowest car hire rates from London Gatwick Airport, London Stansted, London City, and across the United Kingdom.
