Lee Valley VeloPark and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre car parking tariffs

Lee Valley VeloPark and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre will be introducing car parking tariffs, which will come into effect from Monday 25 July 2016. This is because there is an increase in drivers parking there who aren’t participating in cycling, hockey or tennis activities and customers often experience difficulties in finding parking spaces. Please visit Lee Valley VeloPark website for their charges and the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre for their charges.

WiFi available across Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Visitors now have access to free WiFi across the Park, including many of its venues. To sign into the Park's free WiFi, simply select it from the list of available networks. You will then be asked to provide your name and email address as part of a short registration process.
