O2 Arena

O2 Arena featuring modern architecture

Created as the focal point of Britain’s millennium celebrations, today this architectural wonder offers a world of entertainment under one enormous roof.

O2 Arena was originally called the Millennium Dome. It was created to celebrate the beginning of the new millennium. Completed in 1999, The Dome initially housed the Millennium Experience, an exhibition consisting of exhibits, shows and entertainment honoring humankind’s achievements. The Dome’s vast interior has since been remodeled and today is one of London’s premier entertainment destinations.

In 2005, The Dome, as it is still most commonly referred to, was officially reopened as The O2, an “indoor city” and entertainment district. Take a stroll down Entertainment Avenue, a palm tree-lined precinct packed with cafés, bars and restaurants. After a meal, take in a movie at the 11-screen multiplex cinema, then dance the night away in one of the clubs.

The Dome’s centerpiece in the massive O2 Arena, which hosted several events during the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. Experience some of the world’s biggest touring rock and pop acts in the 20,000-capacity arena. If you prefer your music in more intimate surroundings, check out the program at the smaller concert space, IndigO2. For something different, book one of the 12 ten pin bowling lanes at the Brooklyn Bowl and enjoy craft beers and a New York-style menu as guest artists play live on stage.

Music fans will also love the British Music Experience in The O2 Bubble, an interactive museum dedicated to 60 years of British popular music history. Book a guided climb atop The Dome’s roof for unrivaled views of London, Canary Wharf and the River Thames.

The Dome has a constantly rotating line-up of concerts, exhibitions and events; check the website for details and ticket information.

Located in North Greenwich in South East London, The Dome is easy to reach by bus and Tube. Parking is also available for a fee. For more unconventional travel, fly across the Thames on a cable car. These run between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks and offer great views of London. River Boats also run directly from the London Eye Pier and are a relaxing way to arrive.
