Olympic Stadium, London
Categories: Tourist Spots, Arenas & Stadiums
A vast, ovoid structure opened to host the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Olympic Stadium serves as the centerpiece of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The stadium can accommodate 80,000 spectators, and serves as the home of UK Athletics and--starting in 2016--West Ham United Football Club. It also hosts major concerts and events.

Especially if you haven't been to the stadium for an event it's interesting. The major focus is now on the West Ham football team but there is still a lot of Olympic & para Olympic detail. It is a sel... read more »
Stadium is what one would expect of a new stadium. Easy access to facilities, good vision all round. Went there by tube to Stratford Station. Arrived early and wandered around the shopping centre befo... read more »

Went to see it yesterday. The stadium itself is stunning. However, the lack of signage, regarding public transport, is shocking. The nearest DLR station is still a building site, due to Crossrail. Direct routes to Stratford station are blocked by housing and retail developers. I hope all this is rectified before long.
Classic move but I will miss the Boleyn Ground. It is time for change though and, despite the idiotic comment from the Scouser that we don't deserve it, we have proved that we have a fan base that have regularly supported the club. This has been consistently demonstrated over the years by topping the percentage attendance charts, and the immediate sellout of 50,000 season tickets. The move will also bring the club back into the the original boundary of the London Borough of West Ham. Perhaps our Liverpool friend is just jealous because Anfield is still in Everton? Note: The stadium now has a capacity of 60,000

Went to see ACDC concert there. I was concerned about leaving and public transport chaos. I could not fault the way the large crowds were handled, the public transport worked well with less crowding than the normal London rush hour. Food and drink at the venue was expensive.
Stadium itself is awesome, great building. Organisation is not. They could take a leaf out of Wembley's book. Better get it sorted for West Ham's first match
Attended AC/DC 4th June 16. Stadium is superb but exiting central standing area (on the pitch) at the end was at best chaotic and at worst potentially dangerous. People climbing over barriers because the exits couldn't be found. Directions to station / tube dreadful in the dark and path lighting was non existent. You need to sort this out before football season starts otherwise you could have a serious situation on your hands! Disgraceful.
