Getting To The O2

The O2 Arena is located at Peninsula Square, London SE10 0DX - and is served by lots of different public transport links.

You can play your journey using public transport using TfL's travel tools.

London Underground

The Tube is the easiest way to travel to The O2 from Central London. Head to North Greenwich station (zone 2/3) on the Jubilee Line. The O2 is clearly sign posted from the station exit.

There is no step free access on parts of North Greenwich tube station until mid 2018. Step free access is not available to the westbound platform due to planned maintenance work.


Get on the 108, 129, 132, 161, 188, 422, 472 or 486. They all stop at North Greenwich station.

River Services

Catch the MBNA Thames Clippers river bus express. Boats go direct from London Eye pier to The O2.

They leave every 30 minutes and begin three hours before an event. It takes 35 minutes. So there’s time to grab a drink and a snack on board.

Driving To The O2

Inside the M25 and outside the Congestion Zone. The O2 is signposted from the M25, the A2 and A20 (from the South East), and the M11 (from the North).

Use the postcode SE10 0DX for route planners. And if you need a junction, use Millennium Way or Edmund Halley Way. We recommend booking your parking in advance on The O2's website.

Emirates Airline

Enjoy 360 views of the city. Ninety metres high. 

Fly the Emirates Air Line between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks. This is London’s only cable car experience. And it’s just five minutes from The O2.
