Those wanting to avoid the post-show stress of getting on the underground after an event at London’s O2 Arena can rest easy at a number of hotels near the venue. The hotels we have selected are all just a brief stroll away.

Located on the Greenwich peninsula, the O2 has good links to public transport, as those heading to the venue can travel by boat, underground and bus. Its key location means that event goers can stay in hotels across the city while still being able to get to the arena easily.

As thousands head to the arena for events across the year, fans may want to book a room at one of the nearby hotels in advance to avoid a last-minute panic. Due to their close proximity to the arena, rooms at nearby hotels can go quite quickly.

We list where event goers planning on a visit to London’s O2 Arena can stay near to the venue.
