Getting to The O2

Originally opened on December 31st, 1999, the Millennium Dome officially became The O2 in 2007. The telecoms giant renovated the original structure to build a 20,000-seat auditorium, which has housed some of the biggest names in music, and also featured in the London 2012 Olympics. Today, the awe-inspiring structure offers a cinema, studio tours, a trampoline park and much more.

The O2 is based in North Greenwich, London. Its official address is Peninsula Square, London, SE10 0DX.
