    Fabulous venue- terrible food in stadium though!
    Athletics- fabulous venue. Excellent viewing wherever you were in stadium. Very good crowd management after sell out Diamond League Athletics- 50,000 people all leaving together. Expect to walk 20 plus mins minimum to gwt to tube/train station. A great stadium. Only complaint was disgusting limited expensive food options. Definitely eat before you go!

    Athletics Great - food value and choice awful !
    We have been at the Stadium many times. Olympics and other Diamond League meetings. With a 50,000 crowd you expect delays and certain queuing after the event and the queue was managed quite well. What is terrible is the food offering in the venue. My wife is a veggie and there is zero choice and that is at at an Athletics meet where you would expect good healthy living and food to be part of the agenda. It was the same last time at the Athletics event. We have made the mistake of thinking they may have resolved the hotdogs and popcorn choice but NO ! The answer for any future event is bring your own food in as the offering inside is rubbish.The Athletics was great as is the stadium for this type of event.

    Diamond League, Diamond Stadium …..
    Genuinely can’t fault anything over the day, as we enjoyed the Diamond League Athletics meeting here. Our journey to the stadium was painless and well managed by staff overall, who directed us to the correct bridge and then the correct turnstile. I simply passed my phone back through the barriers to each member of the group, who scanned their barcode before doing the same. No queues at the programme kiosk either, where I picked up my free event programme. Inside, the stadium was as magnificent as it was externally. Again, no queues, with a quick service for Beers (£7.50 per drink was steep but fully expected due to city prices). We had toilets next to our block and our seats were in a fantastic location! The event itself was brilliant - smoothly run and thoroughly entertaining. Would happily consider another visit next year. The stadium is up there with one of the best i’ve been to - modern, grand and home to a fantastic atmosphere!

    Home of The Hammers
    The London Stadium was opened in 2012 for the start of the Olympic Games when they were held in London. Once this was over there was speculation about what was going to happen to the stadium. There were rumours it would be taken over by a football team and in the end West Ham United relocated there. The most central station to get to is Stratford which is served by trains from Hertfordshire, Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk. There is also the Elizabeth Line which runs from Shenfield to Heathrow Airport and Reading and has loads of handy connections to other routes. There is also the Overground, Docklands Light Railway, Central and Jubilee Lines. From this station you can get to Olympic Park via the Westfield Shopping Centre and there are lots of restaurants and bars if you want to get some alcohol before you visit the stadium. The closest station to the stadium is Pudding Mill Lane which is on the DLR and fairly close by. As it is the home of the Hammers the stadium is decorated in claret and blue and on the doors into the stadium are the words to their song "I'm forever blowing bubbles". The Olympic Park is dry so you cannot take alcohol into the park. There are places dotted around the stadium selling food and drink. There is also the West Ham store where you can get your WHFC merchandise.

    Pricey drinks but everything else ok
    Attended the sidemen v you tube all stars football match with my son. Had a great view from our seats. Didn’t buy any food within the stadium but £4.65 for a bottle of prime was a bit steep! Very pleased there were water points all over the ground on such a hot day. Stewards really helpful in getting us into the ground. Ladies toilets very clean

    Great Views but Very HOT!
    If you take a reusable bottle you are ok- disposable you need to get rid of the lid. We were there on the hottest day of the year, and the queues for the water taps were massive! The queue to get through security was also very large and we only just got in in time for the football match! However, the view and acoustics are amazing at this ground, even if you are up in the heavens so don't panic too much about where your seat is. We got burgers from a stand inside, they were £10 each. Not really worth it, but I guess you pay a premium!

    1 hour tour
    Enjoyed the tour, especially pitch side. Only negative was the shop. Spent £100 in there. On paying it felt like was an inconvenience. No messing, very clinical, not very friendly at all. Was my first time there, a disappointing end to the tour. The security guard made us feel valued tho, was very helpful. Would definitely recommend this tour, especially if your a fan...

    GOOD VIEW FROM UPPER TIER FOR £11
    I decided to try for carabao cup tkts for arsenal match as been meaning to go to the new stadium as premiership prices are too dear. Its hard in the dark trying to wind your way from stratford station but i just followed the fans as you could see stadium in distance. its about 15 mins walk to ground then depending on your stand a bit longer to entrances. its like wembley but in the east! plenty of food outlets outside ground and more inside. The tickets were £11 OAP and even £11 adult where I sat so a bargain for key game like that. Its a bit of a polava filling out registration online just to get tkts but I persevered. Knowing they would go quickly at that price for london opponents i tried on the general sale day and spent some time looking at seating plan. its not very easy to find prices u want as it depends where u sit. not knowing the ground this took some time and you hover over a stand and see what prices they charge for each block! As its in bands it doesnt say which stand or even what stand u are looking at until you book it! i managed to find the £11 seats in the bobby moore stand which is behind 1 goal. I got aisle seat 15 rows up in upper tier by corner flag well under cover! i expected by roof at those prices so well happy as its about 40 rows to roof! you had a good view of far goal being high up. I would not recommend any further behind goal than corner flags as bobby moore stand upper is so far from pitch u may as well be at home or pub! this is because lower tier has a bar area behind seats which sets the upper so far back as its not directly above lower tier like most grounds. good game and strong squads plenty of goals 3-1 and 60,000 as u would expect. even a few school parties came to the match. overall an enjoyable first trip and would recommend for either cup games if priced like this match. the pricing system is extensive on website with 4 categories for games with complicated banding system. Extensive review hope this helps with first time visitors. living in west london I found it quite easy to get home 90 mins. took about 30 mins staggered to get to stratford station as stewards delay the crowds but it was well managed. even got elizabeth line to bond street which was quick.

    Modern oval athletics stadium, lacks character of traditional grounds
    We were looking forward to West Ham stadium . It seems impressive on the outside but the entire stadium seems to lack the character of a football stadium. That’s because it’s an athletics stadium as well therefore the angles and edges we see if traditional grounds are not there. It’s an oval stadium, modern. The disappointment was that the shop was closed on 27th December. Most of the stadium stores were already opened so to come all the way and not access the store was disappointing.

    Tour guide was king of cool
    Did a tour of the stadium with my mate (who's a hammer thru and thru). Can honestly say it was the best London stadium tour I've ever been on. Lawrence the tour guide knew loads about the history of the club, Kurt Zouma, and the grass. And he was great craic. Ended up going for a pint with him after. Needed more photos of Mark Noble though.

The stadium is good, the stewards are not so good. When accessing the Disabled Persons Lane because I am registered disabled, as were many of the people travelling down the same lane, the steward then proceeded to say to the man in front of me “where’s your pass? I can see him” referring to the disabled person the man was supporting. I feel that the way in which stewards talk to supporters (or customers as Karren Brady refers to us) should be addressed through training. I find a lot of the stewards at the LS ignorant, incompetent, lazy and rude. There will be a discrimination case against the staff at this rate.

The stadium is impressive, the food and drink outlets are vast but far too expensive, you need to remortgage you’re home for a family day out at the football. The stewards need training in etiquette.

My entire visit exceeded expectations.
Firstly, the outside queuing system was managed really well and there was a full pat down of everyone entering as well as ensuring everybody received the correct wristband for access to their seating areas.
There was plenty of bars and food stalls inside, and the only time I ever had to queue for more than 2 minutes was between bands, which is to be expected. The longest queue was for burgers, but as soon as I changed to the Cornish pasty queue it moved very quickly too, despite how busy it was.
The sound and lighting of the show was brilliant, and definitely up there as one of the best shows I have ever seen.
I was a little disappointed at the end of the evening as when leaving the entire crowd was kept in barriers which prevented us going in the direction we needed, and when I was able to get out of the crowd heading to the station (as I did not need to get on a train), one of the security women shoved me and told me that I needed to go to the station anyway - very strange!

My husband and I went to see Monster Jam yesterday and it was so terribly organised that we will never go there again. 1) no road signs anywhere to find the stadium. 2) shocking queues going in, terribly organised, again no signs or explanations. 3) we had purchased more expensive tickets to attend the “pit party”, no signs to the party and we asked several staff memes and nobody had a clue. 4) we were not advised that the pit party will end at 1pm therefore we only managed to get up close with one of the trucks, and we were delayed getting in due to lack of signage, and the queues. 5) no lifts available for disable people or buggies, I have mobility issues and had to do 4 flights of stairs. 6) when coming out of the stadium there is one main exit opposite Westfield Shopping centre and the stadium staff had to use stop and go sign to handle the huge crowds, again badly organised, everyone wandering what was happening. 7) food stands didn’t open until 1pm causing horrendous queues as snow started at 2pm. There is more I could mention but these are the key points for me. Never again.

It's not a Football Stadium. That's what we were there for!
It is a great Stadium but not to watch football. there as an away fan . We know West ham Owners cheated the Government to get it on the cheap but it's a rubbish place to watch football.
The searches before entering the outer rim is a joke . Not only does it cause aggro it is very poor.Then the obnoxious security people "filtering " the away supporters towards the turnstiles are extremely officious.
It's not far from Hackney Wick with it's Craft Beer Bars and "Hip" Cafes.
Then the hike up the stairs to the seating areas are exhausting. Then you've still got more steps up to your seats!
Plus point the seats are comfortable. But of course no away fans sit down!!!

This is a very nice stadium. But it was not built as a soccer stadium and it shows. The seats are very far from the pitch and this seriously takes away from the atmosphere/ experience. On the other hand it is very easy to get good tickets for West Ham matches through the club’s website. If you are visiting London and want to watch an EPL match easily - this is a good option. But if you can go instead to see Tottenham or Arsenal which are much better stadiums.

Being a west ham season ticket holder i am obviously going to give it a pretty decent review however there are a couple of things that need to be addressed one being the dreadful stewarding on match days and the amount of away supporters that manage to get tickets in the home end.
Its a complete joke and the stewards could not care less!
My next gripe is the price of the food and drink which inside the ground is very sub-standard and a ridiculous price .
something else that made me laugh was the advertisement flashing up around the stadium for Heineken zero which you cannot buy at the bars in the stadium ??

I actually drink it which makes it 10 times more annoying .

If you are driving and need to park you can easliy get parked in westfield shopping centre for around a tenner,its a 15 min walk to the stadium from there . Try to get to the ground around 30mins to 40mins before kick off as there are massive queues at the security checkpoints and if it is raining there is no shelter .

My advice is get there early and eat at Westfield .

Come on you irons .

Went to the Hella Mega Tour. What a brilliant day! The stadium is an extremely good venue for gigs. We were standing and the atmosphere was immense. Security and queuing on the way in was well managed, there was free drinking water at multiple points inside the stadium and an extensive range of bars and food outlets (a bit pricey, but it's London and once you're in it's a captive market so to be expected). Really couldn't fault anything and when I think back about the day it just makes me smile

Terrible experience. There is no food to buy, you are not allowed to leave the section you are in and we were not even allowed into the restaurant to buy any food! Additionally, the staff is very unfriendly and unhelpful. If I could give this experience 0, I would do so in a heartbeat. Most terrible customer service I have experienced. Came to the game, thinking I would be able to get any food, instead I am sitting here hungry without any food options. If i was allowed to leave section, I could at least have gone out and buy a burger…

The workers in this stadium did an outstanding job of converting the stadium to a baseball layout for the Cubs vs Cardinals series. The view from our upper deck seats was great and it was a lot of fun with fans from around the world. I recommend seeing this Major League Baseball event next year when it is the Mets vs Phillies.
