Millennium Dome, London

The Millennium Dome is the world's biggest dome and was built on the international date line to celebrate the new millennium which officially started in Greenwich, England on 1st January 2001. For the whole of 2000 it contained a vast exhibition celebrating all aspects of human achievement to date.

The Millennium Dome closed to visitors on 31st December 2000 a few hours before the new millennium began. Since then it's future has been the subject of much debate.

Now, a world-class entertainment and sports Arena is being created within the Dome that will seat up to 20,000 people. The project is due to be completed by the Spring of 2007, and it is already playing a key role in London's bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games.
