How do I get to the ground?
The London Stadium is designated as a ‘public transport destination’, basically there is no car park as such for most as public transport is the preferred method of getting to the stadium. The ground is also located within the ULEZ, if your car doesn’t meet requirements there is a £12.50 charge. Check if you are required to pay the charge here. If you are required to pay, you must do so by midnight on the third day following your journey or you can pay in advance. More information on how to pay here. Also be mindful of this information in other parts of London that you might be heading towards too.
If you’ve got disabled parking directions are as follow: Take junction 27 off the M25 and onto the M11 towards London. Follow signs for the North Circular A406S and A12/13. Stay in the left hand lane for the A12 and at the roundabout, take the 4th exit for the A12 heading towards central London and Stratford. Stay on the A12 and you’ll be able to see the velodrome on your left, take the exit here on the A106 signposted Stratford and Westfield. Lake the left hand land and continue on this read towards the stadium on your right and the shopping centre on the left. Car Parks are clearly signposted.
Where is the best place to park?
Unless you have pre-booked disabled parking at the stadium you can’t park there. Westfield is about a 15 minute walk away, costing £10 for the day. Although it is Sunday be careful with on street parking restrictions. Yourparkingspace.co.uk or justpark.co.uk are an option but all spaces close by are now booked.
Where’s the best place for disabled parking?
Disabled Parking is pre-booking only and done through the Club at a cost of £10 per car.
What is the nearest train station to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
The Stadium is well connected with three stations:
Stratford is on the Elizabeth, Jubilee or Central line DLR and Overground
Stratford International is on the DLR and South Eastern
Stratford High Street and Pudding Mill lane is on DLR
Some fans are looking to use tube stations further north of the capital, to avoid driving into London. Epping is the easiest tube station as it has a direct line into Stratford, or others on the central line. Cockfosters and Stanmore are usual go to’s for Town fans on an occasion of a play-off final but the location to the East of the City means you’ll have to change lines to get there. If you fancy using the new Elizabeth line it start’s at Shenfield, which is an extra junction round the M25 from Epping. The Elizabeth line is down to run this Sunday.
Also be mindful that as it is Jubilee weekend, car parks and parking in general will be extremely stretched so consider addition time on your journey for this.
Recommended pubs for away fans?
No specific Club pubs and there isn’t much close to the stadium itself. Some will be heading towards the Westfield centre and Hackney Wick while others will choose to drink further away and catch the tube in.
Is food available in the area?
Again, not a lot around the stadium – on West Ham match days there are food concessions outside but I’ve yet to have confirmation they will be there because of the difference in crowd size. Otherwise it’s a walk to the Westfield Centre where there are a number of chain restaurants or slightly further beyond there are some smaller outlets – these are not guaranteed to be open with it being Sunday.
Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?
The nearest ATM is on the Olympic Park outside of the Podium café and ArcelorMittal Orbit.
What food and drink is available at the stadium?
Pies, hot dogs and hot/cold drinks are available in the ground. As is alcohol, although prices are higher than what we are used to.
Both cash and card are accepted.
Is a programme available?
Programmes are available, with a price yet to be confirmed.
Rules on flags and drums?
Flags must not be positioned where they will obstruct gangways, access routes, entrances or exits.
The drum and any other musical instruments are not permitted.
Rules on bags and pushchairs?
Bags, backpacks or briefcases larger than 30cmx20cmx20cm are not permitted in the ground and there is no facility to store these items
The stadium has a buggy storage facility. If you need to use this, GTFC must be made aware by Friday.
