Olympic Stadium, London

Address: Olympic Park, Stratford, London E20 2ST
Capacity: 54,000
Local Club: N/A

Getting there: 

With the Olympic Park area being so large and bringing in large amounts of visitors daily, it is not recommended to drive and park at the area. The public transportation is much more efficient with the amount of stops around the area.

By Car – There are parking ramps around the area, mainly towards the Westfield Stratford City. Make sure to get there early enough in order to ensure a parking spot, or look to book a spot ahead of time in the lots near other Olympic venues.

By Train/Tube – The Olympic Park area has 9 different tube and train links. Some of the closer ones to the stadium are Stratford, which is served by the DLR, Jubilee, Central, and the Overground lines, and Stratford International, which is served by the DLR and Southeastern High Speed 1 lines. With so many different stations, it does depend on which line you are taking, so make sure to check because you may have a short walk to the stadium.

If you wish to get to the Olympic Stadium via London public bus network, there are dozens of different ones coming into the area, mainly ending at the Stratford City bus station. Make sure to check listings and bus numbers.
