Experience a feat of aerial daring and help raise £2 million for charity
Feel the breeze as you step on to the edge of the rooftop balcony of Canary Wharf’s iconic tower, 210 metres above the ground. Take in the rarely glimpsed panorama of the Capital and brace yourself for a once in a lifetime, 600 metre-long aerial dive, on one of the longest and steepest urban zip lines ever constructed.
Once in a lifetime
Thanks to the generous support of the Canary Wharf Group, ZipLondon has permission to rig a one-off zip line from the top of One Canada Square, for one day only this June.
Never to be repeated, you can be a part of this unique event by fundraising and helping us to raise up to £1million for two life-saving charities. With 40 places available on the day, we hope each participant will be able to raise anything up to £50,000 for this exclusive opportunity. Get in touch to find out more.
On arrival at this iconic London landmark you’ll be welcomed into an exclusive VIP lounge on the 31st floor. From there, you’ll ascend 19 floors, where you’ll be met by London Fire Brigade’s expert technicians who will prepare you for your flight.
After soaring through the heart of London’s financial district, you’ll touch down at Westferry Circus, a stone’s throw from the River Thames. You’ll then board a London Fire Brigade fire engine and return to One Canada Square, where you can relive your experience with your friends and family.
