The O2 Arena
London SE10 0DX
TfL Fare Zone 2
Remember London’s Millennium dome – that strange space-ship looking structure on the banks of the River Thames below Greenwich? It has undergone a massive redevelopment to turn it into a huge entertainment venue.
The exterior of the building looks the same but inside it now houses a central, purpose-built live music venue, the O2 Arena.
The arena also hosts world class sporting events, theatrical productions and was a major venue during the 2012 London Olympics.
Outside the Arena but still under the iconic roof are other entertainment venues – an 11 screen multiplex cinema, a state of the art live music club (IndigO2), a street of bars, restaurants and leisure attractions (Entertainment Avenue) and an exhibition space known as The O2 Bubble.
To get some idea of the variety of events staged, ‘The O2’ has hosted the Tutankhamun Exhibition, Disney on Ice, Bruce Springsteen Concert and NBA Europe Live. A full list of forthcoming events can be found on the O2 website.
