Zip Now London

The longest, fastest city-centre zip wire in the world... right here in central London!

Three thrilling 225 meter zip wires with speeds of up to 50kph in central London. Launch from 35 meters: the height of 9 double-decker buses! See the city from a unique perspective.

Duration: Normally 45 minutes but can be longer on busy days

Location: London's Southbank - Archbishop's Park, Carlisle Ln, Lambeth, London SE1 7LE

5 minutes walk from Waterloo station and Lambeth North. 10 minutes walk from Westminster and Vauxhall stations.

Suitable for ages 8+, children must ride with adults. Max rider weight 120kg. Min rider height 1.2 meters. Not suitable for pregnant women.

What to Expect

Your zip wire experience starts at the south end of the picturesque Archbishop's Park, accessible from Lambeth Road, Lambeth Palace Road and Carlise Lane. Head to the check-in area and get signed in. 

Next is your safety briefing video taking you through all aspects of your experience. Drop your bags in the locker area and then you'll be kitted up by our expert instructors. You'll be fitted with a full harness and helmet for your ride.

Now some exercise... you'll walk to the far end of the park and climb our 35 meter launch tower. It's a long way up, but a cooling breeze and unique view awaits you! 

At the top of the launch tower, you will have all your kit checked again before taking your ride. Countdown 3....2...1, lift your feet and off you go! 

At the landing tower, you have the chance to add the "mega drop" freefall experience, or if your nerves are completely shredded already, simply walk down the last few steps to de-kit and inspect your photos.

The experience normally takes about 45 minutes, but may be longer at weekends.

Disappointing, short and a waste of time

went on this with my daughters who have done many zip wires before and found this very short. the mega drop was also a complete waste of money. we didn't feel any adrenaline rush. The photographs which were purchased before hand were of very poor...More

Go before it is too late!!

This is a great experience. You have to get this booked in your diaries before it disappears in September. The experience was fantastic. I was a slightly nervous user but ALL the staff made me feel incredibly safe throughout the entire experience. The welcome is...More

Very short

The staff was nice and we had a good experience, however this does not compare to several other really good zip lines we have done in the US, Canada, & Costa Rica.

Great experience, just over too quick

Felt safe and secure, friendly staff but did have to wait a long time to actually do the zip after arriving early they ran well past the booked time but thoroughly exhilarating experience.
