The O2, aka the Millennium Dome

Can you walk on air? Well, in London, England, the site of April’s photo, you can walk on O2. The photo shows the top of The O2, aka the Millennium Dome, built in 1999 to house an exhibit to celebrate the third millennium, then sold, refurbished and renamed to be the center of a complex of entertainment venues.

Located in the North Greenwich district, The O2 houses a concert arena, a cinema complex, a dance club, an exhibit space and much more. Or you can walk across the dome’s roof and take in the view from 196 feet up; visit www.theo2.co.uk.
