    We were lucky and were spectators at The Olympics 2012. So when we bought tickets for The 2017 World Athletic's we were more than a little interested to see what has happened to the stadium since then...  more »

    First the bad stuff: getting into the stadium took forever. How having massive crowds of tightly packed people queuing for a security check is a good thing I've no idea. Perhaps they sorted this later...  more »

    The London Stadium; the embodiment of London 2012's emphasis on legacy. Built for the 2012 Olympic Games this venue remains as one of Europe's largest athletics facilities. Despite some initial fears ...  more »

  • Absolutely amazing stadium. Great staff, great food, great seating. A lot of space in the stands and so many toilets for both men and women, you'll never have to worry. If you're sitting pretty high up, you're also covered for any kind of weather aspects. Went to watch a football game and had an amazing time.
  • It's a good stadium, with lots of option of food and drinks, the toilets are clean, the staff treat us politely. I went to see a Guns N' Roses concert, and I recommend to take a seat, to the Ones that want more comfort.
  • Starting to actually feel like West Hams New home now. Atmosphere is getting better during matches, unfortunately though still too many tourists around the stadium who only go to games for a day out! They do not belong here and we don't want tourists coming who know hardly anything about West ham, I hope club changes this!
  • Acted as steward and my stuff was taken from a security position! People great but not happy with the head of security Bridge 1,Bob. Called me 'son'. I am 52 and he was arrogant, disinterested and couldn't care less. My bag with my shoes was taken from a position he was responsible for and he did not care!
  • Amazing evening in the Claret lounge. Fabulous hospitality and awesome Guns n Roses gig :) xxxx

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
