The O2 is a large Entertainment District, built within and around a large dome-shaped building, on the Greenwich peninsula in south-east London, England. The name of the Entertainment District officially became The O2, when O2 plc (now Telefónica O2 Europe plc) purchased the naming rights from the developers, Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), during the development of the entertainment district.

The dome-shaped building, also referred to as the Dome’s canopy , was originally constructed as the Millennium Dome, and housed a major exhibition celebrating the third Millennium. After the closure of the exhibition on 31 December 2000, the interior of the building was demolished leaving only the shell of the dome.

Since the closure of the original exhibition, several possible ways of reusing the building have been proposed and then rejected. The official renaming of the dome to The O2 on May 31, 2005 gave publicity to its transition into an Entertainment District including an indoor arena, a music club, a cinema, an exhibition space and bars and restaurants. The area surrounding the dome, as well as under the canopy, was completely cleared prior to the development and construction of the new facilities.
