Parking at the ground
I'm coming over with the family for the Tottenham game on 20th October. We land at 11.30 am and, assuming everything goes well, will get to the ground for kick off. I've done it a couple of times before for Upton Park but never for the London Stadium. It's generally touch and go to get there on time so I don't want to mess around looking for parking. I also haven't been to Stratford since they redeveloped it so I will have no idea where I’m going around there.

Any advice as to easiest place to park . (I’ll be bringing two very tired 6 and 8 year olds so the nearer the better.)

Park in Canary Wharf, is a bit lumpy but spend a tenner in waitrose on snacks for the kids and you get 3 hours free i think. Do not leave the motor around Poplar, anywhere on a sat without restrictions wont be near a DLR station or wont be where youd want to leave a half decent motor.

Re: Parking at the ground
If I drive I always come off at old ford on the A12 then park near the plough pub which we drink in it’s a decent boozer but loads of parking some free but if your getting there near kick off you’ll have to pay. Probably the shortest walk to the ground if you’ve got kids

If you use the car park at Crisp St, leave your keys in the ignition. At least then they won’t break your window when they nick your car.

Re: Parking at the ground
If you don’t mind paying, and want to be sure your car is there when you return, go to Canary Wharf shopping centre and take the DLR. that way you can pick up a coffee for the journey too.

Langdon park should be space.

Re: Parking at the ground
Thanks again all. One last q.

I'll presumably come in from the west through the Limehouse Link tunnel. Consensus seems to be take the DLR to Pudding Mill Lane. Assuming I do, any recommendations as to best / easiest / safest place to park? Canary Wharf, Poplar, All Saints…

Don’t mind paying if it saves 20 mins trying to find a space.

Park in Canary Wharf and get the DLR.

Avoid Stratford it's depressing. Pudding mill lane or hackney wick.

LA,
Get the train from Warwick Parkway or Leamington into Marylebone. Don't know if they do family tickets but will be cheap anyway at weekends. Brother gets advance fares for about six quid each way. Then get the tube and dlr over to Stratford.
Leicester tickets for away end will be hard unless someone here can help. Leicester home tickets have a membership scheme and think usually they don't reach general sale

Just knock on a locals door and offer them a score to park on their drive... old skool... or do what one iron used to do and just post the score through their letter box if they was out !!

Park local and tube or DLR it to the ground. DLR into pudding mill lane is probably the easiest and least stressful for a young lad

For Leicester away, post on the ticket forum and ask around on twitter. Ive always got tickets for an away game via one of the two.

Alternatively you can also call up the ticket office constantly in the few days leading up to the game as they get player returns etc and get spares. Or if Leicester isnt far go to the pubs beforehand there are always spares floating around.

Re: Parking at the ground
Personally wouldn’t go anywhere near Redbridge. The roundabout there from the 406 is manic on a normal Saturday let alone matchday. Then you’ve still got a long journey to the ground.

Park near any dlr station on the Pudding Mill line and go that way. For the life of me I can’t work out why at least half the crowd isn’t using that station. It’s 2 minutes from the ground.

As for tickets for Leicester. Why not get in touch with the club and explain you’re bringing your kids from La just for the game. It’s a long shot, but you might get lucky,

Re: Parking at the ground
You'd struggle to get a ticket in the away end at Leicester.

...Probably difficult in the home end if they advertise, with the slogan, 'Come and see the stars of West Ham'
