Many people head to London via the London Heathrow Airport to seeing a game or concert. There is plenty to see and do in London, including taking in a game or concert at Twickenham Stadium or the O2 Arena.
Twickenham Stadium is the second largest stadium in the UK, only surpassed by Wembley Stadium.
Twickenham Stadium is nicknamed “Twickers” and is the home of the rugby football union (RFU). From 2016 to 2017, the American National Football League played three games here.
There have also been many world-class musicians who have performed at the Stadium, including The Rolling Stones, The Police, Lady Gaga, and R.E.M. Concerts aren’t held here too often, so when tickets do open up, they can sell out fast. Last year, U2 was the only band who performed for two nights that year at Twickenham Stadium.
Many people who book tickets for a rugby game or concert are only in town for the day, before heading to the airport, then staying at a Moxy Hotel location in England or another country.
The O2 Arena is another location to check for games or concerts during your stay in London. During the 2012 Summer Olympics, the Arena had to be renamed “North Greenwich Arena”, in order to stay sponsor-neutral. This Arena is located on the Greenwich Peninsula in the southeastern part of London.
The O2 Arena was built on the site of where the Millennium Dome used to be. Only the dome shape structure actually remains, so it’s often still called “The Dome”. Since the telecommunications company O2 is the Arena’s main sponsor, that’s why it bears its name.
Chances are good that you’ll be obtain to obtain tickets to one of many sporting or entertainment events held here, as this Arena has the highest seating capacity of any indoor venue in the UK, besides the Manchester Arena.
To reach the O2 Arena you’ll need to take the Jubilee Line and get off at the North Greenwich station.
One of the most notable events in history included Prince’s performance in 2007. One unique aspect of the O2 arena is its ability to be completely modified inside for different events. The seating arrangements can be moved, and even the ground surface can be changed. The Arena can host ice skating events, ice hockey, and be changed into a basketball court. The space can be turned into an exhibition space, concert stage, and even a conference venue.
The O2 Arena is also available for private hire for special corporate events. No matter your plans at the O2 Arena, your closest airport is going to be the London Heathrow Airport.
