    The Olympic Park contains several sporting venues such as Zaha Hadid's Aquatics Centre. In 2013, the park is to be known as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee.

    The troops & guards doing the security are doing a really efficient job and will have you inside in no time. Empty water bottles are fine to bring, as you can fill them inside the park.

    If you can undergo 30 minutes of excruciating (& happy) marketing on behalf of Coke, you'll get a free picture with an Olympic Torch at the top with the Stadium in the background. Best do it at night.

    Be aware McDonalds is not the only foodstuff you can buy on the park, there are lots of food outlets to cater for all needs, it's just that McD's are the only branded food retailer.

    If you're getting something to eat after a session at the stadium - head up to the outlets towards the velodrome/Basketball arena for shorter queues and more variety.

    Really well organised for entry, friendly and helpful staff. Queues are big for the Megastore, so you might prefer to browse and order online.

    Toilets are clean right now, but I can imagine them getting VERY messy when crowded. Also no Dyson-style hand driers - I am disappoint!

    The fish and chips are excellent. I'm glad visitors to the country will experience a good example of the nation's favourite

    If you can manage a 25 minute walk, getting off at West Ham and taking the Greenway is much much less crowded than Stratford.

    Stanford sent more athletes to the Beijing Olympics than any other U.S. college. Our 48 athletes won a record-breaking 25 medals - 8 gold, 13 silver, and 4 bronze. Read more

    Don't think many shops open before 8, however the security queues at 7:30 were a doddle :)

    Are you aware the Legacy work for the Olympic Park actually starts in January 2012, half a year before the Olympic Games actually start.

    Make sure you eat beforehand - £10.40 for a sandwich meal deal makes me not a happy bunny

    The fastest way to London is NOT West Ham, it is probably the Javelin train from the Stratford Gate

    Il comitato dei Giochi olimpici alza il tiro. Invece di compensare le emissioni di C02, gli organizzatori provano a ridurle in anticipo, con lo scopo di risparmiare fino a 2,7 milioni di sterline.
