Situated a few miles to the south east of Central London The O2 Arena opened as an entertainment venue in June of 2007. It is the second largest seated concert venue in the UK (Manchester Arena is the largest) and has in many respects replaced Wembley arena as the venue of choice for most (though not all ) large scale indoor concerts in the capital. In 2014 the O2 arena became officially the Worlds busiest music arena, taking the crown from New York Citys Madison Square Gardens. The O2 is within a full complex of entertainment venues which include cinemas, bars, restaurants, performance halls of varying sizes, interactive experiences, and exhibitions. The list of artists who have performed at the O2 would include almost all of the worlds top performers across a wide range of musical genres. In addition the O2 hosts sporting events including ATP tennis and NBA basketball. Its located within 100 yards of North Greenwich tube station and is also reachable by a river boat service along the Thames. As you may expect it has a huge variety of restaurants, cafes, and coffee bars to suit all taste and budgets.
