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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5The O2 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Great night of bare knuckle boxing. Good wee fast food place inside. Bar staff very efficient bar busy but moves fast. Will do again. The crowd kicked off but the ground staff quickly sorted it smoothly. Good night well organised and run.

4 Star Rating Depends what/who you're seeing. For a stand up comic I think a smaller theatre is better. I enjoy Michael McIntyre more on the TV than I did on stage; too far away. Also, the long walk around the dome and queue for security makes you feel more like cattle than audience members.

4 Star Rating I have been to a number of shows now and have enjoyed them all so far. Sound and acoustics are very good. Atmosphere amazing. The acts have been pretty decent. Only the comfort of seating loses a star.

5 Star Rating The O2 itself is just a venue, what makes it good are the acts that perform there. Last night my wife and I saw 'Florence and The Machine' as my birthday present. Florence is amazing, her voice is simply brilliant and not matched or bettered by many other artists, the show and atmosphere was incredible and I can't wait to see her live again.
