The O2 Arena is an indoor multi-purpose venue with flexible seating that can seat up to 20,000 spectators making it one of Europe's largest indoor arenas. It was also a venue during the 2012 Summer Olympics.

The O2 is much more than just an arena. There are actually multiple venues located under the huge dome of the O2: indigO2 — an intimate music venue, The O2 bubble — an exhibition space, Entertainment Avenue — an area filled with restaurants and bars which is open day and night, and an impressive 22 screen multiplex theatre.

Entertainment events include concerts, comedy, film, theatre, ice shows, reality TV plus Christmas and New Years Celebrations.

Sporting Events held at the O2 include basketball, boxing, gymnastics, ice hockey, tennis and professional wresting. It was also the venue for Olympic gymnastics and basketball finals during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

With its giant dome and the 11 protruding cranes that support it, the O2 is also a distintive and highly recognizable London landmark.

O2 Arena Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating A Saturday afternoon spent walking around the O2 complex. Bought a cap in Lidz for my son and a cap in the F1 shop for myself. Arrived on the Thames Clipper and left on the cable car. The place is very clean and tidy. Lots of shops and food choices too. I would recommend it to anyone.

5 Star Rating Iconic! Spectacular! Worth visiting. Boasts of the popular, large capacity Arena; access to the arena is restricted so make sure you get a ticket for whatever is on show. Well planned layout with shops of almost all the top brands you know. Several restaurants and eateries are on site; so many options to choose from. Most of them require prior reservations and bookings. Might be crowded during peak hours or peak times. Again, worth visiting for the real experience.

5 Star Rating Stunning venue which makes for a great experience. Only went to the show but really enjoyed the stroll in. They do have a problem with overcharging and at the same time confiscating people’s sweets. I understand alcohol but if you plan taking your own toffees in with one person, distribute them between your group, otherwise security will tuck into them. Brilliant night out though 🤓

5 Star Rating I did the 'up at the O2' walk over the roof with my family. Highly recommend it. Brilliant day out and fantastic experience. I'm asthmatic and managed it perfectly fine, although I was a bit slow! Parking very expensive though, so we travelled to and from by bus, which were really frequent.

5 Star Rating Went to see Monster trucks Glow party 🥳 Was a great evening out with the kiddos, the show was awesome and the O2 is epic As big as it is with lots of different things going on at once, the staff were super friendly and helpful and everything was spotlessly clean. The only downside is the parking. Roads were closed to 2 of the pay per hour carparks which had a 35min detour or you go to the only one accessible from one side and get stung for £40 parking charge for a 2 hr show.
