Life and Style Millennium Dome, London: The Dome, now the O2 arena, opened in Greenwich in December 2000. Resembles a large circular marquee or giant 'Big Top'. Supported by 12 yellow towers – one for each month of the year. The largest structure of its kind in the world. Made of glass-fibre fabric, it weighs less than the volume of air inside. Greenwich prime meridian passes through its western edge.

Could the London-based venue become the new luxury shopping destination?

Rebecca Armstrong: Hen nights can be amazing – or horribly embarrassing

I caught sight of a rather unusual list on a work friend's notepad recently. I won't go into the graphic details, but she was compiling a list of synonyms for the male member. After having a good goggle at it (and suggesting a few additions), I asked why she'd put penis to paper. It was all in aid of a forthcoming hen night, she explained, where each attendee would be given an alternative name for the night, chosen from the fruits of her labour. There was also going to be a stripper from the Full Monty school of disrobement. Luckily, I don't know the hen in question, so won't be invited to the festivities (and if I was, I'd already be compiling my own list – of excuses as to why I couldn't come).
