Olympic Park London is waiting. After the stunning 2012 games, MOXY guests are flooding the streets to make use of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the revitalized surrounding area. Our hotel is perfectly situated for you to sleep well before taking on a record-breaking day at the Park!
Attend events with Olympic athletes competing such as the World Taekwondo Grand Prix or Six Day London. This cycling event is held in October, with exhilarating races at the Lee Valley VeloPark. Explore the London 2012 trail, winding over 560 acres of parklands. Families can try to collect stamps and fulfill secret missions along the Children’s Trail. Dive into the London Aquatics Centre where champions swam, the most technologically advanced swimming facility in the world!
For those looking for entertainment a little more restful than competing like an Olympic athlete, take a 45 minute guided boat tour across the Park’s waterways. The Park Boat Tours pass through the parklands and iconic venues from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The extended tour is two and a half hours with stunning views of the London Stadium, the AcelorMittal Orbit, and Carpenters Road lock. All East London Waterways Boat Tours are mobility accessible with toilets and bar serving hot and cold drinks. For those who prefer, take your own tour of the waterways in a swan pedalo. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is free to visit every day of the week. Come experience the parklands, waterways, playgrounds, cafes, and sports!
Calling all track cycling and BMX bikers! Pump it up on Lee Valley’s indoor track where new cyclists can master BMX basics. Bike, helmet, and gloves are provided with lessons. Take on the 42 degree velodrome! Explore miles of traffic free routes for road biking with your choice of route and terrain. Cycle through the Artway Route, Gunpowder Park, and Tottenham Marshes.
Climb the largest piece of public art in Britain, a marvel of structural engineering. There are two viewing platforms at the top of this Olympic Games focal point, allowing tourists unparalleled views of the skyline. From the top, ride the slide down. It is the highest and longest tunnel slide in the world at 178 meters long. Dine in the restaurant or contemplate your sense of space in the distorting mirrors from the viewing platform. The mirrors are designed to challenge the idea of the tower as a viewing point when you’re “in an instrument for looking.”
Check out the Copper Box Arena which housed handball, modern pentathlon, fencing, and goalball during the 2012 Games. This flexible indoor venue seats 7,500 so come out to feel the adrenaline rush that every Olympic athlete experienced in London. Take part in basketball, wheelchair basketball, badminton, fencing, gymnastics, handball, netball, volleyball, and more!
