Other local attractions
If you’re staying in the area before or after the game, here are a few local attractions you may like to visit.
Coronation Gardens is adjacent to the south side of The Breyer Group Stadium. It includes a maze, ornamental gardens, fountain, bandstand. Most importantly though it’s home to a 2.2m high statue of Laurie Cunningham. A true pioneer, Laurie made his debut for Orient in 1974 before going on to represent West Bromwich Albion and Spanish giants Real Madrid, as well as becoming one of the first black players to play for the England senior team. Sadly, Laurie’s life was cut far too short when, aged 33, he died in a car accident in Spain in 1989, but his legacy continues to inspire us all.
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is free to visit every day of the week and is home to a number of stadia from the London 2012 Olympic Games, as well as parklands, waterways, playgrounds and cafes. You can ride the slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbit, swim in the pools of champions or watch a whole host of different sporting events at The Copper Box Arena. The Olympic Stadium itself is now used for various other sports, however if you want to watch real football in the capital where you’re close to the action, make sure you come back to The Breyer Group Stadium for football!
