Tour Schedule

The London Stadium (former Olympic Stadium) in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is open for visitors to take a behind the scenes tour.  The much loved destination has now been transformed into a superb multi-use venue.  Visitors will have the exclusive opportunity to put themselves in the shoes of their heroes as they stand pitch side where superstars won gold and where West Ham’s players now play their home matches.

With exclusive access to usually private areas of the venue, superstar footage and unique interviews, the new London Stadium tours are perfect for London 2012 enthusiasts, West Ham United supporters and anyone simply interested in understanding the workings of a world-class stadium.

Visitors will be able to put themselves in the shoes of the Super Saturday athletes as they made their preparations on the warm up track before the roar of the crowds spurred them on to gold.  And fans of the Stadium’s newest residents, West Ham United, will not be left disappointed as they follow in the footsteps of their heroes and make the walk along the players’ tunnel, out to the manager’s dug-out before standing pitch side at the iconic venue where they can imagine they are being serenaded by a deafening rendition of ‘Bubbles’ by 54,000 fans.

The Stadium will come alive through a 75 minute interactive multimedia tour that has been specially developed for the Stadium.  Every visitor will have a personal hand held device that will play chosen video and interactive content on their journey through the venue showing interviews with footballers and athletes as well as highlights from the history of the Stadium, UK Athletics and West Ham United.

And once the tour experience is finished, head into Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to enjoy the beautiful parklands and serene waterways all set within the shadows of the world-famous London 2012 Games venues.

Tours start from the Ticket Office on the upper level of the Stadium Store.

FAQ’s

Will the tour pick-up from my hotel?

Not unless you are staying at a hotel that is a designated pick-up (you will see options for these before you pay).  This is because of Government actions to help prevent pollution, no tour operators have been allowed to make individual hotel pick-ups since 1st April 2017.

Are there toilets on the coaches?

Some coaches have toilets, some do not, but on all tours there are regular comfort stops of no longer than 2 hours apart, plus all places visited have toilets on site.

Will we have time for a full lunch stop whilst on tour?

Unless you book a tour that includes a specific lunch stop then no.  Most tours are targeted at seeing as much as possible in one day and do not have time for a full stop.  There are options to buy food and snacks at all sites visited, but these can be expensive and most people prefer to bring food and drink with them.  Supermarkets, e.g. Tesco Express offer excellent and great value, pre-prepared food that is ideal for this.  Here is a store finder link.

Will the tour return to for example London at the time stated or can it be late?

Most tours return at the expected time, but this is always subject to traffic and it is possible there could be a delay and so it is always wise to allow plenty of spare time if you are planning on booking theatre shows, trains or flights etc. after your tour.

What clothes should I wear?

It is always wise to check the weather forecast before setting out.  It is good to plan in case of rain, with perhaps a shower coat and umbrella.  There will likely be quite a bit of walking on tours and comfy shoes are a must and if any of the tour is on grass e.g. Stonehenge Inner Circle tours then waterproof shoes are sensible.  It is often colder out of London than in London particularly if windy and a jumper or fleece in summer are wise and a warm coat in winter.

If visiting London how much time will it take to see all the main sites, will we have time for more than one out of London tour if we only have a week? How long in advance should I book tours?

It is a common mistake that people think it may take six days to see London and only allow a day for out of London tours.  However there is so much to see out of London that four days to go out of London will be an amazing experience to see maybe all these locations, Dover, Canterbury, Leeds Castle, Hampton Court, Windsor, Winchester, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath, Stratford, Oxford and Warwick.

There are excellent day tours of London that see all of the main attractions in one day and then perhaps allow a further two days to see the Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour and other London attractions not included on the main tours and do not forget to book your show/theatre tickets well in advance too.

These are all very popular tours, most sell out well in advance and it is wise to book your tours, theatre and attractions several months in advance and you will find good planning in advance will optimise your holiday.

Is it better value to tour sites of London and out of London sites on our own, perhaps hiring a car?

No, fixed tours of both London and out of London are much better value than visiting sites individually and you will find going individually entrance costs alone will add up to more than the fixed tours, even before you factor in travel costs.

Do tours pick-up from any of the London airports?

Sorry no tours depart or return from any UK airports.  There are however excellent rapid express trains for example the Heathrow Express.

Can you help me find a discounted best value hotel? Plus theatre/shows and other attractions?

Yes we certainly can and here are some useful links.
