FROM WHITE ELEPHANT TO QUITE RELEVANT

AdvantagesAMAZING STRUCTURE, GREAT CONCERT VENUE!

DisadvantagesCAN BE A BIT CHAOTIC IF THERE ARE TRANSPORT PROBLEMS

"... Originally built to house the Millennium Exhibition (which ran from 1st January 2000 to 31st December 2000), this massive marquee-like structure is the biggest of its kind in the world. Its highest point is 52 metres (one for each week of the year) and has twelve supports (one for each month). When looking down on it has a diameter of 365 metres (one for each day), and the canopy is made of a glass fibre material. Situated on the Greenwich peninsular ..." Read review

Now we have all gone dome

AdvantagesGreat day out, loads to see and do

DisadvantagesExpensive entry fee, its closed now

"Well the dome has closed... for the better or the worse is the question being asked. Well I went to the dome in its final days for the first (and last) time and I can honestly say that overall I think that it was a great day out and I am glad that I went. For the last few years there has been constant press coverage on the dome, that was being run into the ground before they had even finished clearing the site to build it. I think the main problem ..." Read review

Millenium Dumb!

AdvantagesNone that I can see

DisadvantagesToo expensive, money better spent elsewhere, people dying on waiting lists, cut backs on prescribed drugs

"What a load of poop! Since it's concept was created it has been headed for failure. I mean yeah the structure is cool and quite a feat but why did they have to fill it full of crap! The amount of money that has been ploughed into the Dome could have been much better spent. There are hospital wards closing and people dying because of lack of funding on the NHS and those twats we voted in to run this country are just paying money into projects to make ..." Read review

Dont Waste It

AdvantagesCould be put to good use

DisadvantagesNever worked

"... They could call it 'The Millennium Athletics Training Arena' and budding athletes would have top class training facilities like an Olympic sized pool, diving area, running track, gymnastics area, cycling track and even somewhere to house rowing boats seeing as the river is right next door! Lottery money could be ploughed into it to pay for the interior and upkeep, as well as for first class trainers. Athletes would want to come from all over to ..." Read review

An excellent day out

AdvantagesThe content was superb, especially the show.

DisadvantagesPrices of tickets, food and merchandise.

"...the film started were hilarious. The Millennium Show deserves particular mention. This was overwhelmingly impressive. I really enjoyed the show, with the pyrotechnics, acrobats and its general presentation being first rate. I congratulate all those who took part. One disappointment inside the Dome was the food and its price. These like the tickets were extortionate, despite the brochure telling you they were at, 'high street prices.' The merchandise ..."

Make up your own mind

AdvantagesLots of attractions, foods, emotions

DisadvantagesTiring on the feet, a lot of reading, £20 too much

"I have been meaning to go to the Dome since it opened, just to say I had been there. My partner sorted it out and we went! Got there just after 12pm. You need to make you own mind up about this - but here's my experience... The place is big, spacious and warm ( a bit too warm in places) and there is so much to see. The Mind Zone and the Living Planet Zone were very good. Some zones - like the faith zone - require a lot of reading - not a lot of ..." Read review

Millennium Experience? Of COURSE it is! ... and more...

AdvantagesGood day out - informative - entertaining - a once-in-a-lifetime experience

Disadvantagestoo much to see in one day (Hey! is that REALLY a disadvantage? why not go back a second time?)

"...day by a chaplain. The Millennium Diamond (the largest in the world) is a wonderful sight to behold. We managed about half the zones in one day and are planning another trip to "finish off" seeing it all. Food outlets are varied. Cheap Macdonalds through to restaurants are abundant. Souvenirs can be expensive but are good quality. In one of the stores, children can buy a large variety of pencils, rubbers, cards etc for just a few pence. There are ..." Read review

Absolute Waste of space

Advantagesshows up the governments uselessness

Disadvantagesexpensive, way over budget, waste of money, looks stupid, built in London

"Is this not the most stupid looking building ever. It looks like a sodding balloon. If it was inflated at least we could live in the hope that it would burst and fly off into space like a deflating balloon. To pour the hundreds of millions that the government have done is disgraceful and will be written on their epitaph. When the NHS/Education/Public Transport is in such a state and yet they pour that kind of money in is disgusting. Do you know how ..." Read review

Not Worth Getting Up Out Of Bed !

AdvantagesWell let me think ........

DisadvantagesShows and entrance fee and ........

"The Millennium Dome The Millennium Dome had taken some press stick and from the public as well saying that it isnít worth the money and they are still spending on it. I think that the Millennium Dome is a waster of time because too much money has been spent on it and should have been spent on something worth while. I mean something like a museum, theme park, and a nature park. This makes everyone happy from youngsters to o.a.pís. They could have ..." Read review

Engineering feat, shame about contents

Advantagesstructure and shows

Disadvantageszone content

"The dome, that world famous disaster. How can they spend so much money and still make the contents look cheap? There is lots to see but not much to do, the content is dull and uninspiring while moving about is difficult amongst the mass of people packed into the structure. There are however three positive aspects of the day, the Blackadder show is easily the best attraction, but this is placed at the entrance just outside the dome. We visited this ..." Read review

A very long day

AdvantagesLots to see

DisadvantagesHard to get to. Preachy. Not baby friendly

"Theres much to see at the Dome, but the question is do we really want to see it? Too often I felt like I was being preached at. Especially in the Living Island Zone, with it's classic seaside look, but little touches to make you feel like all you do is wrong, such as having a bath instead of a shower, or eating junk food. Yes there were good points. The main show was very entertaining, and I enjoyed the games in the Work Zone. However there was too ..." Read review

The Millennium dome Now the O2

AdvantagesPrices are Good

DisadvantagesNot Fully open yet

"Now That the Millennium dome is now the O2 I thought I tell you all what a great day I have had Today at the o2. The O2 (formally Millennium dome) Contains Loads of Cafes and places to eat as well as London's Biggest Cinema and for the 1st time in Europe a massive arena which seats up to 3,000 People. Now I will tell you most parts of the dome which are now open. The arena can hold up to 3,000 people and can be turned used for Shows, Music ..." Read review

A £800 million embarrassment

AdvantagesA beautiful building, will be changed into something new next year

DisadvantagesEverything else

"...a few minutes. And the Millennium Show was equally disappointing. In the end we left early feeling angry and cheated. Here's my list on how that £800 million could have been spent.  61,585,835 CD Album's  29,101,491 Furby's  200,501,253 Florida Barbie Dolls  13,445,378 Clockwork Radio's  5,000,313 20" TVs  3,200,000,000 Bag's Of Crisps  8,000,800 Playstations  88,987,764 ..."

What a waste of Tax-payers money

AdvantagesNone what so ever

DisadvantagesWaste of Tax-payers and Lottery funds, Its a terrible site,

"I have never been to "The millenium Dome" and have totally no intentions of going there but this does not stop me having a opinion on it, as I honestly believe its the most pathetic example on how to waste tax-payers money. I believe the "Millenium Dome" was thought of by the Tory government, and carried on by the "Labour" government as some type of "See we got it going" exercise. To think this thing cost over 800 million pounds, and has since ..." Read review
