Which underground line do I take to get to London O2 Arena?

North Greenwich is on the Jubilee line, which spans from east London right the way through to the west. Eastbound services run to Stratford, while westbound trains end at Stanmore.

The O2 is not the only music and entertainment venue on the line, as Wembley Park is the home of Wembley Stadium.

If you are travelling in from outside of the Jubilee line, you can plan your journey using either the TFL Planner or Citymapper. Both services will show how you will be able to switch to the Jubilee in order to get to North Greenwich.
