  • Great Olympic legacy park. Visited this during the legacy redevelopment after the 2012 London. The park is large and varied enough to spend easily a couple of hours just chilling out. Plenty of shops and easy reach of public transport. Great green space in London.
  • Acres of space to roam, ranging from the inspiring to the mundane. Incredible facilities and amenities widely spread. The wetlands walk area is an added bonus. Allow at least 3 hours for whole enchilada... and then more. Already outstanding and still evolving.
  • The park is really nice. Well laid out. Clean and beautiful. With an abundance of cycle hires. If you need a bit of time away from the hustle and bustle of the city this is a good place. There are a few pokestops round there as well. Also toilets are available.
  • Fantastic but underused resource. Lots of facilities for fitness. Great for walking, running, cycling, swimming. Still needs some work such as opening certain areas that remain closed and at least putting signage up to let visitors know they're walking down a closed off path!! All Lee Valley services need an upgrade in terms of online bookings, answering queries and just rationalising the process and perhaps a Catch-22 here as people dissuaded from using due to this which maintains the service's apathy...good but with much more potential to be excellent...
  • Beautiful area to be in. Love this park. Great addition to Stratford. And it's not mega busy all the time so nice to take a walk or even a drive through the roads back there. Although avoid driving through there at rush hour times.

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.
