Tap into your competitive side

You can also grab some tasty snacks whilst you’re there, including crispy chicken wings or the signature TOCA fried pickles.
See the latest blockbuster
With the Bob’s Burgers movie set to drop during half-term (27 May), why not treat the kids to an unrivalled cinematic experience at Cineworld at The O2 – London’s biggest cinema, with several exciting ways to watch the latest blockbuster, from extreme cinema in 4DX to the huge Superscreen, or even 270-degree ScreenX. Select a Cineworld Family Ticket for groups of four up to two adults where the adults pay kids’ prices for even more savings.
Grab a bite to eat
Take advantage of the wide range of culinary delights The O2 has to offer, from Gaucho and Gordon Ramsay’s Street Burger to Cabana and Gourmet Burger Kitchen. Or for those who prefer a bit of spice, why not head to Nando’s, where kids under 10 can enjoy a main, two sides and a drink or a dessert for £5.95 each. Meanwhile parents can opt for a starter and a main from as little as £13.20. Now that’s what you call a ‘clucking’ good deal!
The O2 is located just 15 minutes from central London and is easily accessible by road, tube, or boat.
