Visit the O2 Arena during your stay in London

Cast your mind back just a few years and the Millennium Dome, situated in Greenwich, South East London was derided as a white elephant, a waste of £850 million of UK taxpayers money and a major embarrassment to Tony Blair’s new Labour government. Built on the banks of the River Thames in London the Dome was to celebrate the previous 1,000 years of history and culture and future aspirations in the UK. It never really lived up to it’s billing and certainly didn’t deliver on the number of visitors that the governmnent forecast would go the the Dome (and it received mixed reviews from those that did visit).

Sounds like a disaster? Well, not really. Out of the Millennium Dome came the O2 Arena London and the most popular live music venue in the UK, and possibly the world. The transformation in the way this venue in London was perceived has been quite incredible, and you only have to look at what’s on at The O2 during November and December to see that no London city break would be complete without taking in a concert or other event on the banks of London’s famous venue.

So what events are on between now and the end of 2010 and which ones will you decide to go and see during your family stay in London – whether you happen to be staying in a hotel in London or a London serviced apartment? Here are just some of the highlights:

*Guns N Roses (October 13th)
*UFC 120 (October 16th)
*WWE Raw World Tour (November 9th)
*Andrea Bocelli (November 12th)
*Arcade Fire (December 1st and 2nd)
*Lady Gaga (December 16 and 17)
*Christmas Spectacular (December 23rd)

……and there are many more events that you can choose from during your London holiday.

And it’s not just live music and entertainment, between 21 – 28 November the Barclays ATP World Tour tennis tour finals take place at the O2 Arena and you could be there to cheer on your favourite tennis player, whether that is Nadal, Murray or Federer. It should be quite an event as it was when it first came to London in 2009.

Depending on how central the O2 Arena is to your plans for your stay in London, then Serviced City Pads, the accommodation booking service would suggest booking a hotel in the city of London or a serviced apartment in Central London. Either option would mean that you are in striking distance of the venue and means you will also be able to use your London accommodation as a base to explore everything else that London has to offer it’s tourist, and there are many varied things that you can do and see during your London city breat. Go to and book your London serviced apartment.
