I love this place, so could be bias! Always something going on. This weekend is no exception, they had the bus art displayed there before they go to auction for charity, all 60 of them that had been displayed on four trials around London the past few months, as part of the Year of the Bus, which was commissioned by TFL.

Very cool site. Its been some time since the Olympics, but I'm glad they are maintaining the stadium.

This place is SO COOL. If I lived in East London I'd probably make this my go-to park. I could spend all day here on my own.
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a wonderful example of urban repurposing. Too many times, countries that host huge events like the Olympics or the World Cup have no clue what to do with the world-class sporting facilities when everyone goes home, but kudos to London...more
Olympic Park. A very good place to spend time. There is a monument / structure that you can go up and it costs £15. There is a good connection to the underground and there is a shopping centre with lots of top end shops. You could at least have lunch in one of the many restaurants there on the ground floor. Great escape if the weather lets you down.more
