Situated on the southern fringe of the Park with fantastic views of the London Stadium, London Aquatics Centre and the ArcelorMittal Orbit, you can’t miss the View Tube - it’s bright green and made from recycled shipping containers!

Open seven days a week, the View Tube is a community venue with a difference. It has a great cafe, maker studios, bike hire, a tranquil garden and it’s a useful stop-off on journeys through East London.

The View Tube is run by Poplar HARCA for the local community, with help from its partners The Common Greenway, V22, View Tube Bikes and Dot Dot Dot.


  • The View Tube lies on the Greenway, a raised walking route following the Northern Outfall Sewer which stretches from Hackney Wick to Beckton, and offers great views out over the south of the Park. You can join the Greenway at Old Ford Lock if coming from the west, or via a diversion by Pudding Mill Lane DLR from the east. Find out more here.
