About the O2

Designed by architect Sir Richard Rogers, the dome is Teflon-coated and has an interior floor area of over 861,000 square feet with a maximum height of 165 feet. In a nod to time itself, The O2 is 365m wide, representing 1m for every day of the year, 52m high to represent the number of weeks in a year and supported by 12 yellow masts, one for every month. 

This huge construction lies in Greenwich, London on the banks of the River Thames. Originally conceived and known as the Millennium Dome, the building was part of Britain's millennium celebrations - but plans for it to become a permanent national exhibition centre proved unfeasible, and for several years the Dome's future seemed uncertain. In 2007 the building was reopened as The O2.

At its heart is the O2 Arena, a 20,000-seat auditorium, but it's also home to a nightclub known as indigO2, 11 movie screens, the O2 Bubble exhibition space, and numerous cafes and restaurants. The O2 hosts' everything from major concerts - think international superstars such as Madonna and U2 - to live comedy, tennis, ice hockey, boxing and basketball. Visitors can also take in amazing views of London on the Up at The O2 experience, an adrenaline-fuelled 624 feet walkway across the building's roof including a viewing platform.

From Up at The O2 visitors can look out across London from a 360-degree viewing platform, sights include; London's only lighthouse at Trinity Buoy Wharf, Canary Wharf, Greenwich Observatory, the Old Royal Naval College, Crystal Palace, the ArcelorMittal Orbit and London City Airport to name just a few.
