The cable car is nice peaceful way of getting to the O2 Arena from the Docklands area. Average journey time for single trip is 12 minutes. See photos we took last week from our trip across there. More information is found here.
The last method is by licenced taxi, minicab or Uber. Please ensure you leave enough time as roads around the arena can be very busy.
Food and Drink
Food and drink policy for the arena is that none can be taken in. This is within the green area on map below. Inside the arena there is outlets but this can be expensive. If you have time, I advise heading out of the arena to the outer area called The Avenue. Here there is many restaurants at a more affordable price. There is also a TESCO Express outside the arena near Car Park 3 which is on the pathway towards the Emirates Air Line Cable Car.
Bag policy is tight at the O2 Arena. Please see below statements from the arena and Legacy
Good luck to all teams competing and see you there!
