Getting to the Dome

Start Dome Tour

The Dome at Greenwich was the centrepiece of the UK's millennium celebrations.

Closed: The exhibition closed on 31 December 2000. The Dome is now set to be transformed into a high-tech business park.

This special feature offers a guide to the Dome's exhibits that caused cheer and consternation in equal measure during 2000.

Last Ditch Attempt To Save Dome
- Boss Pierre Yves Gerbeau teams up with superclub Ministry of Sound

DOME chief Pierre Yves Gerbeau is launching a last-minute attempt to keep the Greenwich attraction as a place of entertainment.

Gerbeau, who hopes to thwart the UKP125 million bid by Legacy, which aims to transform the area into a business park, has a fortnight to secure backing. “The next two weeks will be crucial,” he said. “If it doesn’t go my way by then, the Dome will be dismantled and we will not be interested any more.”

One-time Disney boss Gerbeau joined forces with Ministry Of Sound nightclub head honcho James Palumbo for the bid. If their bid fails, Legacy Plc, who became the favourites to take over the site after Japanese bankers Nomura dropped out, look set to sign a deal before the end of February.

The site was home to Eighteen thousand clubbers who turned out in force on New Year’s Eve for the Ministry of Sound party, held outside the Dome.

Dome Heist Foiled
- Robbers wanted diamonds, say onlookers

GUNSHOTS flashed through the air at the Dome today as a gang of would-be jewel thieves tried to bulldoze their way into the Millennium attraction.

Police intercepted the raid at around 9.00am this morning and witnesses say they heard several shots ring out before arrests were eventually made. Reports suggest the robbers used a bulldozer as part of their heist, but were foiled via a tip-off.

It is thought the robbers were keen to get their hands on diamonds exhibited at the Dome by De Beers, including the Millennium Star, reckoned to be one of the most valuable diamonds in the world.
