The O2 is hailed as the best music venue in the country, and quite rightly so. It has the second largest seating capacity of any indoor venue in the UK, the largest being Manchester, however since 2001 it has held the title as the world’s busiest music venue with sales of over two million tickets a year.
Not only a state of the art arena, the arena concourse is home to dozens of restaurants and bars as well as cinemas, a bowing complex and nightclubs. In fact the arena itself makes up only 40% of the total dome structure. Be aware that on an event night the restaurants get really busy and most won’t take bookings so be sure to arrive with plenty of time to allow for any queues.
Getting to the O2 by train couldn’t be much easier. The nearest station is the Charlton Mainline station. From there you can catch any number of buses to North Greenwich Underground Station and from there it is a 9 minute walk to the O2.
