Don't Mention The Dome

Can you imagine the floorspace of 13 Royal Albert Halls or 10 St Paul’s Cathedrals? We are boggled by it. But that’s what’s beneath the dome (and that’s the last time we’ll mention that word…) of The O2, London’s latest flagship entertainment venue rising like a massive, hi-tech media phoenix from the ashes of its sorry millennial baggage.

The Guardian was granted an exclusive scout about this week reporting on the 23,000 seater arena, the Vue @ O2 multiplex (with 22m show-off screen – yes, size clearly does matter out here), the more intimate IndigO venue, the unlicensed casino and, most interestingly to us, the indoor beach.

See photos here, take a virtual tour here or sneak yourself inside to have a gander on Sunday by going to the Greenwich & Docklands International Festival.
