About London Stadium

The London Stadium, formerly known as the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, is nestled neatly within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, East London. The Park spans over 560 acres, making it larger than Hyde Park- at only 360 acres- and equivalent to around 300 football pitches. Along with other sites in the park, such as the Copper Box Arena and London Aquatics Centre, the London Stadium has become one of the most recognisable sports venues in the UK.

 

The stadium was commissioned for the 2012 Summer Olympic games and 2012 Summer Paralympics. During this time, it served as the athletics track and field venue and hosted the opening and closing ceremonies. Since 2013, the stadium has received over 5.7 million visitors. It has hosted the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games, the 2017 World Athletics and Para Athletics Championships. As well as two England Rugby League test matches, and five 2015 Rugby World Cup games.

Once the Olympic games closed, the stadium fulfilled its initial purpose. And renovations began to transform it into a multi-purpose venue. This is evident in its ‘temporary’ seating design. In football ‘game mode’, the stadium has the capacity for 60,000 seats. Whereas in ‘concert mode’, it holds 80,000 including free-flow between the field of play and lower-tier seating. Moreover, it has the longest cantilevered roof in the world which covers all the seats within the stadium. As such it also hosts various global entertainers in concert, including Guns N’ Roses, Robbie Williams, and Green Day.

After a controversial tenancy process, the Premier League team, West Ham became the Stadiums’ main tenants. Today visitors can walk in the footsteps of football greats and Olympic legends like Usain Bolt and Mo Farrah. Experience life off-pitch with an exclusive part-guided, part-multimedia tour of this iconic arena. And go behind the scenes with exclusive video content. 

Throughout the tour, you will see the managers dug out, changing rooms, hospitality restaurant, players’ tunnel and indoor running track. Commemorate the experience en route with several exclusive photo opportunities and receive a personalised certificate at the end of your tour. Walk in the footsteps of Britain’s greatest athletes and view one-of-a-kind, panoramic views of the London Stadium, that are not to be missed.
