Travelling to The O2
Going to an event
There are many ways to get to The O2, but there is only one way to arrive in style without breaking the bank! Our fleet of river buses include a dedicated service just for The O2.
If you're attending an event at The O2 and want to make your day extra special, our timetabled services to North Greenwich Pier depart every 20 minutes 7 days a week from major central London piers, such as Embankment, Westminster and Tower. Please see our timetable here.
Please note: our last boat departing North Greenwich Pier heading towards central London leaves at 22:50 during the week and 22:40 weekends.
River Bus Express
Following the UK governmental advice (on 16 March 2020) to avoid non-essential travel we have made the decision to reduce our services and to cancel all River Bus Express services until further notice.
The River Bus Express is a dedicated fast service running between Central London and The O2 before and after selected arena events. The journey takes around 30 minutes with departures from the London Eye stopping at London Bridge before arriving at North Greenwich for The O2.
On selected event nights, boats leave North Greenwich Pier 15 -20 minutes after the event finishes, meaning you can avoid the queues for the tube.
Sometimes we run special offiers, check this page to see if there are any discounts available

Getting to The O2 simple, quick and cheap when using a Thames River Boat from Thames Clippers. Once you have arrived at North Greenwich, it’s just a short walk to The O2. Our helpful drivers and boat personnel will direct you to the arena and tell you when and where to meet after the show.

Choose VIP Champagne River Bus Express tickets to make the night extra special. A glass of Champagne will be served on your eastbound journey to The O2. If bubbly’s not your tipple, you can still purchase any drink of your choice at the fully-stocked bar on board.
After the show, we offer a westbound request service, which allows passengers to stop at any pier they choose along the RB1 commuter route, excluding Blackfriars at weekends. Choose After Show Express when booking and let staff know where you are travelling to on the night.
The Doubletree Docklands Ferry
The Doubletree Docklands Ferry runs later on event nights allowing passengers to make the crossing from Canary Wharf Pier to Doubletree Docklands Pier.
