The O2 Arena

Attending a Concert at the O2? Things to do to Enhance your Experience

London’s O2 Arena is not only a world-class entertainment venue, but also a gateway to a wealth of attractions and experiences in the surrounding area. If you are planning to attend a show or event at the O2 Arena in the near future, The Lansbury Heritage Hotel offers an ideal base for exploring all this corner of London has to offer during your visit. With its close proximity and excellent travel routes to the venue, you can truly make the most of what is likely already set to be the experience of a lifetime.

Explore Greenwich and its Maritime History

Just a short distance from the O2 Arena and across the water from the Lansbury, you’ll find the historic district of Greenwich. Step back in time as you wander through the charming streets, visit the legendary Cutty Sark, and take in all the sights and sounds of the National Maritime Museum. Be sure you don’t miss the opportunity to stand on the Prime Meridian Line at the Royal Observatory, whilst enjoying panoramic views of the rest of London from Greenwich Park.

Embark on a Thames River Adventure

The O2 Arena’s riverside location makes it the perfect starting point for a Thames river cruise that will pass by all the biggest and best landmarks, such as the Houses of Parliament, London Eye and St. Paul’s Cathedral. With the Lansbury’s convenient location, you can easily find your way down to the river and embark on such a journey yourself.

Visit the iconic Tower Bridge and Tower of London

Two of London’s most iconic landmarks are only a short way from the Lansbury – Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Take a leisurely stroll along the riverside to witness the grandeur of one of the city’s most recognisable symbols, before continuing the adventure into the fascinating history of the Tower of London, home to the real crown jewels.

Enjoy Shopping and Dining Aplenty

Did you know that the arena is just one small part of the O2? Inside you can also find plenty of fun shopping and dining opportunities within the dome. If you would prefer to do your shopping a little closer to home, the Lansbury is in easy walking distance of the vibrant hub of Canary Wharf, which enjoys more upscale boutiques amongst high street stores within its vast shopping malls. Whichever end you choose for that all-important retail therapy, there will be ample chances for you to buy a striking new outfit or indulge in some pre or post show food and drink.

Attending a show at the O2 Arena opens the door to a multitude of exciting experiences and attractions in London. With the Lansbury Hotel as your base, you can conveniently explore all of these nearby gems and more, ensuring a memorable and enriching mini break.
