Millennium dome

The Millennium dome (nowadays called ‘The O2‘) is a giant dome made of synthetics and shaped by wire ropes on the Greenwich peninsula of London, England. It was opened on the 1st of January 2000 and contained an exhibition to celebrate the new millennium. Today it is a giant sports arena, concert hall and it contains a cinema and some restaurants. Because of its special shape and construction, the building itself also attracts visitors.

Additionally, you can climb onto the construction and enjoy good views on the surrounding area. Well secured you can get up and walk on a defined path on the synthetics hull of the dome. This is especially famous because of the opening scene of the James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough from 1999 where Pierce Brosnan is falling onto the dome while chasing an assassin.
