The Orbit is the iconic observation tower built for the 2012 London Olympics.
It is considered to be the biggest sculpture in Britain and is 114 meters high.
It was designed by artist Anish Kapoor, and from the observation deck there are expansive views over the Olympic Park and onto London.
Constructed out of 600 prefabricated "nodes" and held together with 35,000 bolts. In a bid to attract visitors post-Olympics, you can absail down the tower, and soon what is billed as the tallest and longest tunnel slide will be opened.
Critical reception has been largely negative, but I kind of like it, simple guy that I am, I'm easily impressed by spectacle.
