Create an itinerary including Budweiser Gardens
Budweiser Gardens is a sports-entertainment centre, in London, Ontario, Canada – the largest such centre in Southwestern Ontario. Until 2012, it was known as the John Labatt Centre.

The John Labatt Centre, which opened on October 11, 2002, was named after John Labatt, founder of the Labatt brewery in London. Labatt still has a large brewery in London to the present day, although its head office was moved to Toronto in the early 1990s. The John Labatt Centre's name was changed to Budweiser Gardens (after Labatt's sister brand in AB InBev) in Fall 2012, as approved by London City Council on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 with a vote of 12–3.
The centre was built, in part, to be the new downtown home of London's Ontario Hockey League team, the London Knights, replacing the 40-year-old London Ice House in the south end of the city, near Highway 401. Since 2011, it is home to London's National Basketball League of Canada team, the London Lightning.

  • It is right in the heart of downtown London. It is home to one of the best OHL hockey teams, the London Knights! The London lightning basketball team also play there! They have excellent concerts...

  • Excellent entertainment. Great place to watch a junior game. Fun atmosphere and our upper deck seats were very good vantage point. Lots of restaurants and pubs around the arena

  • Great venue. Got in really quick, and got out quick too. Staff really attentive and helpful. Maybe too attentive as they barley let us take pics of the screen after the comic left the stage. Need at least one memory from tonight!!
  • Great venue for concerts. A bit too packed in/not much room for legs and between seats. But sound was amazing! Had 2 beers there as well! Overall we enjoyed it!
  • Budweiser Gardens was an excellent host for an excellent evening with James Taylor and Jackson Browne. Arena concerts have come a long way. The sound was of high quality. Our seats were comfortable and the leg room was ample. Sight lines were not an issue in the least. The concourse was pretty much jammed but "traffic" flow was steady. All this to say, I'll happily return to Budweiser Gardens for other events.
  • Last night at the Imagine Dragons concert we had a situation that required a seat change. The attendant at our gate 314 Colleen was very helpful and called her supervisor who after hearing our problem immediately found us new seats. Thank you so much. Bud gardens is the best!
  • Went there to see Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban in concert. The seating was quite comfortable, plus the stage and screen were big enough that it didn't make too much of a different where you sat in the theater. It was a thoroughly joyful experience and I hope to come across another when next I visit London.
