Parking at Stratford International is a ten minute walk. Lots of restaurants in the Olympic Park or Westfield depending on what you're looking for.

There are intermediate stops at The Copper Box and Westfield Avenue. Buses run every 10-12 minutes from early morning until late at night, and double-deckers are used which give great views of the Park and many of the iconic Olympic venues. The Copper Box stop is handy for, er, the Copper Box; also the...More
