The best way to get to London Stadium, is by taking the tube or the train to Stratford Station or Stratford International Station. Stratford Station is served by the DLR, Jubilee and Central lines, as well as overland train services. Stratford International Station is accessed by the DLR line, and South Eastern Highspeed 1 services.
Stratford Station is in Zone 2, so a one way ticket from London’s city center, will cost £4.90 one way, though you may be better off getting an all day pass for £12.10. The 2 stations are a 20 minute walk away from the stadium itself, though there is a shuttle bus reserved for disabled visitors.
Stratford Bus station is also a 20 minute walk away, and can be accessed by a range of buses including: 25, 86, 97, 104, 108, 158, 241, 257, 262, 276, 308, 425, 473, D8 services.
Stratford station is accessible by both tube and train and is the closest to the stadium with a scenic 20 minute walk. If you are travelling from London it is easier to get on the Jubilee or Central Tube line to make your way there as it is a short journey. If you are travelling regionally or nationally, head for any main London station e.g. London Victoria or Bridge and follow directions to Stratford station.
If you are looking to take the tourist route you can also opt to get the 388 bus from Blackfriars which runs to the stadium but takes in sporting sights such as the Copper Box Arena and the London Aquatics center on the way. If you need a 24-hour or night bus service you need to look for the N8 or N86 from Oxford Street or Stratford as a returning journey.
If you don’t fancy the walk from the station there are Santander cycle bikes to hire that you can use and dock at the stadium itself. If you are travelling from abroad, London Gatwick trains run to st pancreas international and then on to Stratford and takes an hour and 20 minutes in total.
It is important to note that Taxi and cars will find it difficult to get to and from the stadium, especially on match days because the roads surrounding it are closed 3hrs before and 2hrs after events so attendees are encouraged to use public transport. Prices vary depending on where you are coming from but a London travel card for the underground and overground from inside London are around £12 – £19 for the day.
Avoid driving to the venue if it all possible: it is designed for public transport access. Stratford, Stratford International and Hackney Wick are the three train stations with good access to the stadium. Each is fed by major London railway stations, and Stratford even has an underground station so you’re spoiled for choice. There will be big queues coming home, so plan your journey in advance.
