The O2 Centre is a great place to be. It is more of a entertainment hub rather than a shopping centre. It has many restaurants and bars including: Yo Sushi!, Weatherspoons, Nandos, Walkabout, Fine Burger Company, Zuccato and Starbucks. There is also a multi screen Vue cinema and health centre. There are a few shops including a Waterstones, Habitat and Sainsbury's.
The original O2 was based around the theme of water and as such had many fish tanks and one big one beneath the escalators which had many fish and a turtle. However, the O2 centre is currently undergoing a face lift and as such these features were removed. They are promised to return, however not in the same format. Instead a coffee shop is to be placed under the escalators.
Despite it undergoing maintenance the O2 Centre is stll a fantastic place to hang out grab a bite and catch a film. I look forward to seeing how the renovations work out.
The O2 centre is a mini version of the one in North Greenwich and houses The Vue cinema, which because of Orange Wednesdays is very busy on that day, but has a great atmosphere with so many people under one roof. There is also a Nando's and a Weatherspoons with their Curry and Steak nights throughout the week.
The layout gives the place a lot of room to move and the escalator goes straight up over a huge fish tank, which is always full of our finned friends. A great place just to chill out.
What I particularly like about the O2 Center is the food hall particularly Nando's and the Wetherspoons.
They've just done some work at Sainsbury's. It's bigger now and there is a cafe. And for girls, a bigger clothes section :-).
I've heard the book shop is closing down and that there were massive discounts. I might go and have a look
A great place to go to when you're in Swiss Cottage as there are restaurants, cafes, a cinema, a pub, a gym and a HUGE Sainsburys.
The cinema can be somewhat pricy, but thats London for you.
I like going to teh cinema here the seats are very comfortable although price might be a little bit higher the elsewhere its worth it. Also there are great places to eat in the complex.
Fantastic place in the North Western part of London. This place has what you'd look for in a night out, Cinema, a great Weatherspoons, few bars, varied range of places to eat from tasty chicken at Nando's, to traditional food at Spoons, or an Indian, or perhaps some Chinese food or a burger at the burger place.
Great fishtanks around and they will keep you entertained. Couple of shops around, book shop and also Sainsbury's if you want to pay a visit.
The cinema is great, good for taking the opposite gender there with the liftable arm rests.
The refurb couldnt have made it any uglier but it has to be said this is still a dire use of everyone's time and a very good space in NW London. THe sainsbury's is great but all the restaurants lack any buzz and there seeams to be a contagious depression amongst everyone who works in them. Why not just stick to the high st?
it is a strange place, with restaurants opening onto the main thouroughfare, it's like eating oustide, inside? Particulary Nando's. If you are going out to eat go to a dedicated restaurant with four walls. Upstairs is not as bad, or chilly. There is a selection of restaurants, a pricey health club, a cheap wetherspoons, the obligatory Starbucks and a big Sainsburys. Across the car park there is also a Homebase.
Went to the Cinema there, not much else going on there except for a Habitat and a sainsburys.
I agree with some of the other viewers. Slightly over-rated cinemas probably the best thing about this place. Nothing special overall.
O2 centre is nothing special. No real attractions apart from vue cinema with automated ticket machine and a few food place. very dull.
