Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
Around the stadium built for the 2012 Olympics is a pleasant park, which was named Queen Elizabeth Park after the Queen.
The area has both canals as well as entertainment, especially for kids. The Arcelor Mittal Orbit tower is inside the park, and it has the world's largest tube slide, 174m long and 74m tall. The tickets for the slide cost £5. The park is a good place to visit while doing some shopping, as the Westfield shopping centre is right next to the park.
The Stratford underground station is right next to the Westfield shopping centre and is the best way to get to the Olympic Park. Both the Central and Jubilee line as well as the DLR travel to the station.
Westfield Stratford City is a few minutes away by foot.
