Visited recently to see Jeff Dunham perform. The venue itself is next to Wembley stadium and looks somewhat characterless by comparison but no matter. It's easy to get here by London Underground and entry and exit from the venue seem well organised.

Food and drink prices, although at somewhat of a premium are more keenly priced that at The O2.

As it so happens, the Jeff Dunham show is a...more

You wouldn't think this venue could match up to its neighbour Wembley Stadium. It doesn't look nearly as impressive and the events put on there aren't nearly as popular as footballcup finals in its sibling rival.

The transport out of the place wasn't a train wreck, even though the jubilee, bakerloo and metropolitan lines in the area...more

Nostalgia value 5 stars. Unfortunately, with the O2 Arena raising the standards so high, it's only loyalty that keeps some bands returning to the arena and the view of the fans?

The location seems almost odd now, in the middle of a residential area. No atmosphere around the venue. Good tune station but no parking and horrendous queues if you drive. Shabby inside compared to the O2.

So I...more
