aerial photograph of The O2 Arena / Millennium Dome , Greenwich, London, England UK. Built in 1999 as the Millennium Dome it was constructed to celebrate the turn of the Millennium with the Millennium Experience exhibition. The dome is the 9th largest building in the world by volume and was designed by architect Richard Rogers. After the exhibition the doe was repurposed as a multi-purpose indoor arena in which guise it opened in 2007. It is the second largest arena in Britain after the Manchester Arena. The O2 Arena has proved hugely successful and in 2008 it was the world's busiest music arena.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
