Park at North Greenwich Tube station car park (pay & display). It is adjacent to both the 02 and the 02 carparks.

the o2 pre bookable tickets maybe sold but there are still 1000's of turn up on the day spots available in the same car park. 20 for the day.

It's only around 6 to park at North Greenwich tube station - I always use that rather than the O2 rip off!!! And as rosatoso says, it's just next door.

We always park in carpark 4 of the O2. It costs 6 now I think for up to midnight.

If this is for a concert night, just tell them you're going to the cinema and want to park in carpark 4.

Question "validated cinema ticket" at O2

Hi not sure if anyone has noticed additional wording on the Cineworld site for the O2:
"
Cineworld offer: Cineworld is currently running a free parking offer for those travelling to Cineworld by car. Please validate tickets with proof of cinema ticket purchase at the car park Management Office after your visit at The O2... "

Does that sound like you cant just book cinema tickets online to cover yourself you actually have to goto the cinema and get the tickets in order to use car park 4 (the cineworld one?)

Default parking

hi
we went up to the o2 to see SCD sat 28/01 2012
we arrived at 9.30 am
we parking in the underground car park(above ground (north greenwich))as others have said
not even 50 cars parked so plenty of room

main thing you need COINS for the machines 7 for saturday,3 for sundays

best value i think
our plan was to go to canery wharf have look around and go in the Docklands musem which was great
the down side at the tube station was we only wanted 1 stop on tube but had to pay for full travel card 7 each so went to brick lane just to get some value from it ,

left museum around 4.30 went to pizza express at canary wharf using our Tesco club card vouchers,,not to busy glad we ate there,it was crazy when we got to the O2 all restaurants very very busy

the show was great just to far away up in those up in the heavens


even when going back to car 10.30pm ish still some space in car park as all the youngsters coming in to go clubbing

vic
7 love it

There is a Sainsburys near the O2. Possibly 5 minutes walk. I parked there while my daughter and her friend were at the recent Westlife gig. Free and if you get a ticket( most unlikely) just ignore it.

This is MSE after al.

Default Try parking at Greenwich Odeon Cinema

Last time we went to the 02 we parked our car at the Odeon cinema Greenwich then got the bus to the 02 - takes literally 5mins. Not ideal if you just want to come n go straight, but its no hassle and the buses are very frequent. We parked from about 7 till 11pm with no problems.

Do what i do, if i know when im going i book 1 cinema ticket for an adult to see a film as close as i can to the time i want to be in the O2. I then go to car park 2 or 4 and get 4 hours FREE parking. All i have to do is collect my cinema ticket then go to the parking office in car park 2 present my cinema ticket and get out for FREE! I went there last week, took the kids bought 1 Adult ticket to see Ice Age 4 paid 1.50 for ticket! This little trick was on a TV show, i've used it 5 or 6 times now without any problems. Look at the O2 website and click on 'the how to get here' link and go down to the cinema part!

Great tips folks, thanks. I nearly fell off my seat when I found out the 02 wanted 21 for pre-booked parking. Absolute rip off. The station sounds like a good option, particularly as we're likely to get there midday for a mooch around, so 11 is not so horrendous. However, would there be spaces? What with season ticket holders and other concert goers - would the non-event car parks get filled up?
