Up at the O2 is another landmark in London that you should definitely visit. With the skywalk officially opened in June 21, 2012, the large entertainment district on the Greenwich Peninsula at South East England includes an indoor arena, a music club, a Cineworld cinema, an exhibition space, piazzas, bars, and restaurants.
The O2 was originally the Millennium Dome, a largely built dome-shaped building which is home to many exhibitions to welcome the third millennium. By 2005, The Dome is rebranded as the 02, but until today, The Dome is still used when referring to the O2. The O2 is designed by premiere architects at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners who were also the same people responsible for the design of the iconic venue.
On June 24, 2007, the O2 was re-opened to the public with a Bon Jovi concert. The venue also celebrated its anniversary with a book which contains a double page picture of Elton John’s, “Red Piano” concert in September 2007.
