About Olympic Park

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was created for the 2012 London Olympic Games, and following redevelopments after the games it was opened to the public in 2013. Within the park are a number of sporting venues, including the Olympic Stadium - the new home of West Ham United FC and British Athletics - the London Velopark, the London Aquatics Centre, and the Copper Box, a multi-use arena used for sport and community events.

Between these venues the park has been landscaped, and now has a wide range of outdoor features, including playgrounds, open-air displays relating to the Olympic Games, gardens, wetlands and food and drink outlets. The former athletes' village on the edge of the park is now a residential development. Following the River Lea or the River Lee Navigation, footpaths link the park to the Hackney Marshes via the Wick Woodland.

One of the most striking aspects of the park is the ArcelorMittel Orbit, a 376-foot observation tower. If you have a head for heights, you can enjoy commanding views across the park, its various venues and the London skyline beyond. Although most of the attractions of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park are free, the ArcelorMittel Orbit does have an admission fee of £10 for adults (reduced for children, students and seniors).
