Spurs to offer stadium skywalk

Tottenham Hotspur is giving fans the chance to scale the heights of its new stadium through a new attraction entitled The Dare Skywalk.

The 90-minute experience, which will open on August 31, invites fans to step out onto a glass walkway some 46.8 metres above the pitch. The attraction will allow guests to walk up to the stadium’s iconic golden cockerel and provide wide-ranging views of London.

The name is inspired by Tottenham’s club motto, ‘To Dare Is To Do’. Group bookings and private climbs are available to book for extra occasions, with packages also including professional photography and gift vouchers. Adult ticket prices range from £39 to £49.

From next year, Tottenham will introduce the opportunity to either take a controlled-drop or abseil back to ground level from the peak of the stadium, with sunset and match-day climbs also set to be offered soon.

The Dare Skywalk has been awarded the ‘Good to Go’ standard by Visit Britain in recognition of the club’s adherence with government and public health guidance around COVID-19. A risk assessment has been carried out and the required safety processes are in place.

The ‘Good to Go’ standard also clears Tottenham to reopen its stadium tours, player development programmes and conference and event spaces. Stadium tours will reopen on August 7.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said: “The Dare Skywalk has been highly anticipated ever since we announced our wider plans for the new stadium five years ago – we are delighted that this will now become a reality.

“We have always said that this is so much more than a football stadium – we are creating a destination and driving the regeneration of one of London’s most deprived areas, truly putting Tottenham on the map.

“This represents a whole new level of visitor attraction in London and we look forward to seeing many people take on this unique challenge over the coming years.”

The initiative is in line with Tottenham’s plans to make the stadium a year-round sports and leisure destination. The stadium will also host major concerts, as well as NFL, rugby and boxing events.
