Unleash your game at the UK’s ultimate gaming destination, plus find out how you can unlock exclusive gaming offers, treats and experiences with Priority from O2

By Virgin TV Edit

The ultimate gaming experience has landed at The O2, the UK’s top entertainment venue – and it’s free and open to all, powered by our lightning-fast broadband.


Introducing Virgin Media Gamepad. At Gamepad, you can raid, race, battle and play like a boss with the most powerful consoles from Xbox. And if you have the Priority app, you can unlock special treats and bag a slot in our exclusive gaming lounge just for you and your squad.


It’s open to all gamers. Whether you’re a pro player or a couch contender, head down to The O2 from 2pm-7pm every day, Monday to Sunday (excluding Christmas Day).


Gamepad is also fully step-free and wheelchair friendly. Plus, once a month there will be Purple Tuesdays for those with sensory sensitivities. If you have an adaptive controller and would like to bring it to use at Gamepad, email so they can prep things for you (on-site adaptive controllers and hearing aid loops will be available soon).


Featuring an exclusive gaming lounge, a dedicated streaming stage and reams of gaming pods, Gamepad features state-of-the-art gaming spaces like never before.


Here’s a rundown of everything you can see on your visit.


Only the best tech in the house

We’ve teamed up with Digital Foundry to kit out the space with the very best from the gaming world, including the most powerful consoles from Xbox. All powered by our lightning-fast broadband.


It’s always playtime in The Playground


We’ve packed our entire top floor with 16 gaming pods and Xbox Series X consoles, so everyone can raid, race, battle and play like a boss. Just rock up, grab a seat and enjoy.
