The London Arena (originally The Great Ice Rink and later The Gala Royal Ice Rink) was an ice rink and concert venue on the Isle of Dogs, in Greater London, England which operated from 1936 to 1998.
The venue was built on the former site of a small slaughterhouse on the west side of the Millwall Dock, and was opened on 12 June 1936 by the then-Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII). It was one of the first purpose-built entertainment venues in the country, and was the largest ice rink in Europe at the time.
The rink was originally intended for use as an ice hockey arena, but was used for a variety of events including boxing matches, musical concerts, roller derby and other sporting events. It was also used as a venue for the 1948 Summer Olympics and the 1972 Summer Olympics.
The London Arena was closed in 1998 and was demolished in 2000. The site is now occupied by a shopping centre and an office building.
The London Arena was an indoor arena located in London, United Kingdom. The arena, which was the first in Europe to be built with a retractable roof, was opened in 1989 and was closed in 2005. It was used for music concerts, sporting events, and other events.
