Millennium Dome on 22nd September 2012

As the Emirates Air Line climbs away from its northern terminal at the Royal Victoria Dock, the view is dominated by the Millennium Dome. Constructed in the late 1990s to celebrate the arrival of the year 2000, the Dome was initially considered by many to be a 'White Elephant', serving no real purpose other than hosting a year-long exhibition. It later re-opened as The O2, a concert and entertainment venue, and recently hosted some of the gymnastics events of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
