Boats to the O2

The O2 Transfer

A typical journey in our vessel might be along the lines of passengers embarking at Westminster Pier to be greeted on board by the crew and catering staff with a glass of champagne. Leaving the Pier, the Captain often takes the passengers upstream through Westminster Bridge so that they get the magnificent river-facing view of the Palace of Westminster. Swinging and proceeding outward-bound, guests enjoy some of London’s most famous sights: the old County Hall, the London Eye, Cleopatra’s Needle, the South Bank and OXO tower down to HMS Belfast, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Canapés are served either in the saloon or in the open cockpit area of the boat as the cruise proceeds towards the sky-scrapers at Canary Wharf.

Return trips: events in the arena finish no later than 11pm on weekdays and 10.30pm on Sundays

The O2 is not just a venue for concerts, comedy, award ceremonies and sporting events: if you have a ‘head for heights’  enjoy the views of the River Thames and The Royal Docks as you walk over the roof of the Dome.

Hire The O2 for your own business meeting or Christmas party.

With some 35 restaurants, bars and catering outlets, The O2 is not just the place to go on event nights – everything from birthday parties to office lunches can be catered for at the large range of outlets.

About the O2

The O2, is a large entertainment district on the Greenwich peninsula in South East London, England, including an indoor arena, a music club, a Cineworld cinema, an exhibition space, piazzas, bars and restaurants. It was built largely within the former Millennium Dome, a large dome-shaped building built to house an exhibition celebrating the turn of the third millennium; as such, The Dome remains a name in common usage for the venue.

It is often referred by various names: the O2 Dome; the O2 Centre, which properly refers to an unrelated shopping centre on Finchley Road; or The O2 Arena, which properly refers to a smaller indoor arena within The O2. Naming rights to the district were purchased by O2 plc (now Telefónica Europe plc) from its developers, Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), during the development of the district. AEG owns the long-term lease on the O2 Arena and surrounding leisure space.

From the closure of the original "Millennium Experience" exhibition occupying the site, several possible ways of reusing the Millennium Dome's shell were proposed and then rejected. The official renaming of the Dome in 2005 gave publicity to its transition into an entertainment district. The Dome's shell itself remained in site, but its interior and the area around North Greenwich Station, the QE2 pier and the main entrance area were completely redeveloped.

The area is served by North Greenwich tube station, which was opened just before the millennium exhibition, on the Jubilee line, and by bus routes, and now, Boat-Hire.London can offer you to opportunity to travel in the luxury and style you demand…
