It was first suggested in 1994 that Britain should hold a national exhibition as part of the celebrations of the new Millennium. Tony Blair took the idea onwards after his election and the Millennium dome was conceived as the venue for a huge, educational exhibition venue.
Though the Dome cost many hundred of millions and is truly an impressive structure it was met with a mixed reception by many Londoners.

The Millennium Dome has a circumference of over one kilometer, covers more than 20 acres and is more than 320m in diameter. It was famously featured in the James Bond adventure film ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’.

The Dome was officially rebranded as the 02 when O2 plc purchased the naming rights, during the dome's redevelopment into an entertainment district.

Nowadays, the O2 is part of a large entertainment district located on the peninsula in Greenwich which includes an indoor arena hosting many events and concerts, a music club, a multiplex cinema, exhibition space, shops, bars, and restaurants.

Brooklyn Bowl located in the 02 complex is as much a live music and clubbing destination, as it is a place to go bowl. Its modern Americana inspired space is an appealing place to see bands not quite big enough for the 02 next door but big enough to get you all the way out to Greenwich.
