Enjoy the view from the UK's tallest sculpture, the ArcelorMittal Orbit, with Father Christmas this December. For the very first time the world's most celebrated man in red, will be visiting London's most iconic red landmark, bringing all his festive cheer, and his trusty reindeer, with him.

On selected dates in December, Father Christmas and his reindeer will be in residence to meet children and their families. Begin your festive visit by meeting Santa's famous friends as they rest before their epic flight on 25 December. Then take a journey 80m to the top of the sculpture to meet the man himself and admire views of up to 20 miles across London and the iconic sporting venues of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. There will also be art and craft activities to enjoy, seasonal surprises and local carol singers dropping by.

The Christmas Event at Orbit is an excellent opportunity to have some pre Christmas fun with the whole family. The kids will appreciate the amazing view from the Orbit. On top of that you get to meet Santa and his trusty Elfs complete with reindeer and Santa's sleigh. The craft activities were neatly arranged and there were plenty to do. Even my little one (who is very little) was super excited with his flag that we made for him. The staff at Orbit were very very helpful. Take time to visit both floors and don't forget the reindeer and sleigh on the ground floor. fsmile
