The O2 is clearly signposted and easily accessible from the M25, the A2/A20 (from the South East) and the M11 (from the North). If you need a junction, use Millennium Way or Edmund Halley Way. The O2 is right next to North Greenwich Underground and bus station.
We have a clearly signposted drop off and pick up point for arena event nights inside car park 1, just off Millennium Way.
Car parking is available for every event at The O2. It's a good idea to pre book to guarantee a space. To do so please visit the following link for information, prices and pre-booking: parking.theo2.co.uk. IT IS CHEAPER TO PRE-BOOK PARKING SO PARENTS, FRIENDS AND FAMILIES OF YV CHOIRS SHOULD BE TOLD THIS.
For any parking query, call us on 020 8463 6718 (10am - 6pm).
If you haven't booked parking in advance, you may still be able to get a space in car park 1 - but it will be more expensive and cannot be guaranteed. Information on how to drive to The O2 can be foudn here:
Coach Parking (schools)
The coach park entrance can be accessed from West Parkside (when this is full you will be directed towards the Car Park 1 overflow parking for coaches). The O2 parking cost is £33.50 (pre booked) for coaches and £18.50 (pre-booked) for mini buses. You must pre-book your parking space by visiting https://parking.theo2.co.uk. If you do not pre book your parking we can not guarantee you a space on site and you may be turned away.
If your school are travelling on more than one coach then please book via telephone on 020 8463 6718 (Mon-Sun 10am - 6pm).
Coaches (dropping off and returning for the end of the show)
Coaches can arrive from 10.00hrs and drop school parties at “The Coach Park” only. Coaches will only be permitted to remain in “The Coach Park” whilst the children are dropped off and will be asked to move on immediately afterwards by The O2 car parking team
Coaches can only return to the coach park after 20.45hrs and not before. Any coaches arriving before this time WILL BE TURNED AWAY by The O2 car parking team. We can not guarantee a pick up space in the coach park if you are only dropping off and picking up
NB: We do advise that you have your coach driver’s/company’s mobile number for ease of departure after the concert. We also advise you check that the driver who drops you off is the same driver as the one picking you up. Problems occur when companies use two different drivers and the latter one is often unaware of the pick up details.
