Your Day Your Way: Planning your day out at the O2
If you’re paying a trip to the Big Smoke some time soon, you’ll doubtless want to take in all the sights. Make sure one of them is the O2 Arena though, stationed on the Greenwich peninsula. The huge complex has loads to offer, and a new web service will help you to plan a day out under the dome. Called Your Day, Your Way, the service simply lets create an action packed itinerary in seconds.
Know what day you’re headed to the O2? Just click on the calendar and you’ll be shown everything on offer. Want some inspiration? The “Show me some ideas” tab will drop you straight into the See & Do tab with a quick guide to everything that’s happening. Tabs in the right hand corner provide quick access to venue and travel locations, and even tell you what exclusive deals you can take advantage of as an O2 customer.
Take in a show
Whatever time of day, there’s all sorts to do at the O2 Arena. Browse through the web-app right now and you can buy tickets for anything from the British Music Experience, an incredible museum dedicated to pop, to upcoming events like Snoop Dogg and Lee Evans performing – even live indoor cricket.
Catch a film
There’s a huge multiplex Cineworld cinema under the roof showing all the latest blockbusters. You can see what’s on right now under the Films Tab, see synopses and even buy tickets with a click. Every taste is catered for with high octane action films, low key dramas and even Bollywood flicks on show.
Get a meal
The main street that runs around the perimeter of the dome is packed with shops and places to eat. You really are spoiled for choice; luckily, the Food & Drink tab will show you what’s on offer in one place. That’s everything from Brazilian and Argentinian food to British pub grub and chic Asian fusion food.
Night on the tiles
Not ready to hang up your dancing shoes yet? The Clubbing tab will show you what’s on at all of the O2 Arena’s club nights.
Grab a bargain
If you’re on O2, the O2 Priority Moments app will help you get dibs on the best seats in the house, but that’s not all: click the Treats tabs and you can see all sorts of offers available, including major discounts on meals out and even free entry to clubs.
