General Information

 

What is The Dare Skywalk Edge?

The Dare Skywalk Edge is the latest visitor attraction to arrive at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Paired with the existing Dare Skywalk experience, the Edge is a new experience which challenges adventure seekers to an exhilarating 42m controlled drop over the edge of our iconic stadium. The Edge is the only way controlled-rate descent off a stadium in the UK and the ultimate way to finish your Dare Skywalk experience!

After scaling the height of the Stadium and embarking on a journey to the golden cockerel, you will be attached to our rope safety system before testing your nerves and taking it 'over the edge'.

You can decide whether you attempt the Edge backwards-facing or, for those brave enough, forwards-facing. 

 

 

When does The Dare Skywalk Edge open?

The Dare Skywalk Edge will be opening in June 2021 with tickets on sale now.

 

 

How high is The Dare Skywalk Edge?

The Dare Skywalk Platform on the South Podium is the highest point you will reach and is 42 metres above pitch level.

 

 

How long does The Dare Skywalk Edge experience last?

The complete Dare Skywalk and The Dare Skywalk Edge experience, from your pre-climb safety briefing to de-kitting after returning from your climb, will last approximately 90-100 minutes. When participating in the Edge, you will descend at a rate of approximately 2 metres per second from a height of 42 metres. Timings may vary slightly on the day, so please allow time when planning your visit. Once you have de-kitted back in Basecamp, you will be directed to the Tottenham Experience where you will be able to view and purchase your professional photographs. Should you wish to visit and make a purchase from the Tottenham Experience shop, please check the opening hours before booking.

If you have people in your booking who do not wish to take part in the Edge, we advise that you meet them back in the Tottenham Experience after you have all made your descents.

 

 

I have a fear of heights - can I still take part?

In most cases, yes. Our Guides will help you accomplish The Dare Skywalk as well as the The Dare Skywalk Edge. If you have any questions or concerns in advance of your visit, please let us know and a member of the team will get back to you.

Once you've begun The Dare Skywalk experience, you must complete it. At the highest point, you will be walking on a glass walkway 42 metres above the pitch. On the walk to the roof you will be waking on an incline of 14 degrees.

Once you reach the roof, if you decide that you do not wish to take part in the Edge, a Climb Guide will be more than happy to assist you in getting back to Basecamp via The Dare Skywalk.

Please use your discretion when booking this experience as you will not be able to return early once the climb has begun.

The minimum age to take part in The Dare Skywalk Edge is 12 years old and all participants must be at least 1.2 metres in height.

  • 1 adult to accompany 4 minors between the ages of 12-17

We do our best to accommodate access requirements so that everyone can complete The Dare Skywalk and The Dare Skywalk Edge. We may request for you to provide a certificate of fitness from a medical practitioner to confirm that you are in a fit state of health to participate in the Edge and to provide such further details about your condition.

Can I propose to my partner on the roof of the Stadium?

Yes, we would love to help you make your visit as memorable as possible. Please inform us ahead of time so that we can ensure everything runs smoothly for you - a member of the team will get back to you as soon as possible. You will need to give the ring to your Guide, who will keep it safe for you until the opportune moment.

Your opportunity for proposal will be once you have reached the viewing platform. Your Guide will also be on hand to take pictures. If you wish to find out more information about proposing on the Dare Skywalk, please feel free to get in touch.

 

 

Can I do the experience if I am pregnant?

Unfortunately, those who are pregnant are unable to take part in any Dare Skywalk and The Dare Skywalk Edge activity. It is a physically demanding activity and requires you to wear a harness which fits tightly across the body.

You can check availability and make a booking directly via our website.

 

 

Can I come and experience the Stadium Tour, Dare Skywalk and The Dare Skywalk Edge on the same day?

Yes, we would love you to experience all three attractions. Please click here to book your tickets for each one. 

Tickets must be purchased separately for The Dare Skywalk and Stadium Tours, and you will receive a ticket for each individual attraction. You will need to make sure you leave adequate time in between each experience. The Dare Skywalk Edge is purchased as an add-on to your Dare Skywalk ticket and will be visible on your Dare Skywalk ticket. 

Check-in for Stadium Tours take place at the Tours Desk, located within the Tottenham Experience. Check-in for The Dare Skywalk and The Dare Skywalk Edge takes place within Skywalk Basecamp, situated next to the Tottenham Experience. The Tottenham Experience and Skywalk Basecamp are both located on the High Road, with the Tottenham Experience at street level and Skywalk Basecamp accessible by a staircase or lift from street level. We would recommend leaving plenty of time between your experiences to travel to the different locations and to check in.

We encourage guests to look around the Tottenham Experience shop if they have time between their scheduled Stadium Tour and The Dare Skywalk experience. There is a bag drop located within the Tottenham Experience for guests to leave purchases and large bags free of charge before taking part in any of the experiences.

 

 

Can I do The Dare Skywalk Edge without participating with a Dare Skywalk climb?

No. To partake in The Dare Skywalk Edge, visitors must also have booked a Dare Skywalk experience. The Edge is a continuation of the Dare Skywalk experience and must therefore be purchased as an add-on.

 

 

Can I purchase The Dare Skywalk Edge experience on the day?

Yes, our Hosts will be happy to assist you in booking tickets on the day when you check-in. Please be aware that capacity is capped per timeslot, but we will try to ensure you do The Dare Skywalk Edge at a similar time to others in your group.

If there is a wait between reaching the Stadium roof and the Edge, you can enjoy the panoramic views of the capital from the viewing platform on the roof and purchase a glass of prosecco as an add-on.

Prosecco can be purchased when you check in for your experience or, if you decide you would like a glass when up on the roof, you can pay once you return to Basecamp after you have descended.

 

 

What happens if some of my party want to take part in The Dare Skywalk Edge and others don't?

There is no obligation for everyone in a group to participate in The Dare Skywalk Edge. Those who would prefer not to descend via the Edge will have the option to descend via The Dare Skywalk.

Please be aware that guests who complete the Edge may finish their experience at a slightly different time to those who descend via The Dare Skywalk. However, all experiences will finish with de-kitting in Basecamp and the opportunity to view photographs in the Tottenham Experience. 

We advise that groups reunited in the Tottenham Experience.

How should I prepare for my visit?

You will be asked to show this confirmation at the entrance to Basecamp.

On the Day

Where does the The Dare Skywalk Edge start from?

The Dare Skywalk Edge experience is a continuation of The Dare Skywalk, and you will check in for both experiences at the Skywalk Basecamp, located on Park Lane Square behind the Tottenham Experience.

After checking in, you will be briefed about both experiences and advised on all safety checks. Climbs are available throughout the day and Basecamp opens 30 minutes before the first climb.

 

 

What if I am late?

We advise that you arrive 20 minutes before the time of your scheduled experience. This will allow time for check-in and use of toilet and locker facilities before kitting up and embarking on the experience.

Climbs start promptly at the time listed on your ticket. Late arrivals cannot be guaranteed entry and we are unable to refund or reschedule climbs due to lateness.

 

 

What happens if I change my mind when I'm up there?

Once you have reached the summit of the Stadium, if you no longer wish to take part in The Dare Skywalk Edge then there will be no obligation to do so. Our Guides will be more than happy to speak with you and ease any nerves, but if you decide not to proceed then you will be led back to Basecamp via The Dare Skywalk, safely attached to the rope system. 

 

 

Will there be a photography opportunity at The Dare Skywalk Edge?

Yes, there will be photo opportunities on the roof as you prepare to take part, and whilst you descend.

You can view and purchase the professional photographs taken on The Dare Skywalk and The Dare Skywalk Edge in the Tottenham Experience shop at the end of your visit.

 

 

Will I need to bring a face covering?

Please bring a face covering with you. Face coverings must be worn while in inside areas within the Dare Skywalk and The Dare Skywalk Edge experiences, and also in the Tottenham Experience.

 

 

What items are prohibited?

You won't be permitted to take any belongings with you on the experience other than the following:

  • Your mobile phone (these are permitted on the climb but will remain in the possession of the Climb Guide upon your ascent and descent, as phones can only be used once you have reached the viewing platform on the roof. Alternatively, you can store these away in the lockers provided at Basecamp).
  • Your spectacles, sunglasses and hearing aid, which must be secured and not loose-fitting.
  • Essential medication which is permitted at our discretion. While the medication shall be carried securely by a Guide, neither Tottenham Hotspur nor any operator will be responsible for the medication or the administering of it.

The following items are strictly prohibited on your climb:

  • Any item which is dangerous, may be used as a weapon, or may cause damage to the structure or stadium
  • Food and beverages (unless required by diabetic climbers and arranged with a Guide in advance)
  • Sound, video recording equipment, cameras, handbags, umbrellas, headphones, MP3 players, iPods and any other personal items.
