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.

Plenty to do here. Plenty of places to eat and each restaurant is great. Everywhere is clean and all of the venues are modern and accommodating. The O2 itself is a bit cold but I can't imagine what it would take to heat a place like that, especially when all heat would rise to the top so no fault of theirs. Makes a great day out for friends and family alike.

Lovely arena plenty of places to eat and drink. Shopping too if you fancy a look. Easy to get to and plenty of parking. You can pre book a space as well. We saw strictly tour and had excellent seats. Great night out.

A great place to visit for good food and the cinema is great. The arena is huge so difficult to get a good view, but if you go just for the food/cinema/shops it's great! The addition of the outlet shops has been brilliant - and there's 4 hours free parking if you spend £35 or more in the shops. There's often something going on outside too - promotional or pop up shops

Really great venue for live concerts, have visited here many times and each time we've had an unforgettable experience. I had the opportunity to see two of my favourite bands here and partnered with the venue they were both incredible to see. Highly recommended if you get the chance to pick a venue.

Such a lively place to visit! This is always bustling with activity, any time of the day. We visited the O2 dome and the Emirates Cable Car and ut was an awesome experience! Beautiful views all around. Definitely worth a visit! There's a walking tour on top of the O2 dome (which is always booked!), Please ensure you do not miss that!
