The O2 by night
Last Sunday we visited the O2 for the first time. Previously known as the Millennium Dome, this interesting-looking structure houses a concert arena, music club, cinema, exhibition space, piazzas, restaurants and cafes.
It is located on Greenwich Peninsula, SE London, and was built in 2000 to celebrate the Millennium. It's circular, 365 m in diameter - one metre for each day of the year - and the largest dome of its type in the world.
We travelled by boat along the Thames. I took this photo just as our boat slowed down to approach the pier at O2.
