(Please note the postcode for Taxi and Private Hire drop-off is different - see below for more information)

When getting directions, please do NOT enter 'Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park' into Google Maps as this will take you to the wrong area of the park. Please use the postcode provided for the Main Entrance where there will be specific lanes for both General Admission and Guest List. Please use the queue that applies to you as this will speed up entry for everyone.

Remember to keep an eye on travel alerts the morning before you travel and plan how you will be getting home after the event. CityMapper is a brilliant app for planning your route - especially if you don't know London that well: https://citymapper.com
