The ArcelorMittal Orbit is probably the most enjoyable way to take in 20 mile wide views of London. Not only is it the UK's tallest sculpture but it is also the world's longest slide. This is one of London's most iconic and noticeable landmarks. It gives the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park a unique and eccentric style that is unmistakeably British.
This truly impressive master piece by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond is a big part of the London 2012 legacy. Constructed from enough steel to make over 250 London buses, and 60% of which was recycled. Maybe it should also get credit for being one of the world's most environmentally friendly slides.
It was named after the company that provided the materials ArcelorMittal, which is one of the world's premier steel corporations. So get on a train and head for Stratford Station, and for the slide experience of a lifetime.
