Where are the best seats at London’s O2, according to reviewers?

Seating at the venue can differ depending on the type of event that is going ahead. While some layouts don’t have seating on the floor level, others do.

If your event does have floor seating, then the block A2 is the place to be, according to past guests on A2 is the front central block of seats which sees those sat in this section very close to the on-stage action.

As it is a favoured spot, tickets may go quickly. However, blocks A1 and A3, which are on either side of A2, are also located at the front of the floor seating, meaning they could also be a good alternative.

It’s probably no surprise that level one is also a highly sought-after spot for seats. Although the best blocks on level one can depend on where the staging for the event is placed. In particular, blocks 109 and 113 are the most rated areas by past visitors. Other blocks with similar views include 101, 108, 107, 106, 105, 104 and 103.
