Sports & Entertainment

If you've booked tickets to see an event at the O2 arena, London Stadium and Olympic Park and need a place to stay afterwards, the Aloft London hotel is ideally located within a 20-minute radius.


The O2 arena

The O2 is widely considered to be the world's most popular music and entertainment venue, and is without doubt one of London's greatest assets. Since it's hugely anticipated opening in the summer of 2007, the incredible alien spaceship-like giant marquee has hosted a plethora of world-class acts, experiences and attractions, drawing in people from all over the globe.

In terms of big acts, the magnificent 20,000 capacity arena has hosted the likes of The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Prince, Madonna and Pink Floyd and many more. As concerts go, there really is nothing quite like the atmosphere generated at the O2; it's something special that we hope you'll have the privilege of experiencing.

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is home to the London Stadium, the ArcelorMittal Orbit, the London Aquatics Centre, the Copper Box Arena, Lee Valley VeloPark and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre - as well as parklands, waterways, playgrounds and cafes.

The Olympic Park is open daily and free to visit.

London Stadium

London Stadium is located in the South of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It was constructed for the 2012 Summer Olympics and 2012 Summer Paralympics-serving as the track and field venue, and as the site of their opening and closing ceremonies. 

The stadium hosts sports and music events and is home to West Ham United in the Premier League, to UK Athletics as well as playing host to global entertainers in concerts through the summer months. 

London Stadium is also the first venue in Europe to host Major League Baseball, between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.
