HOW TO USE ThE CAR PARKS
We operate a ticketless automated number plate recognition (ANPR) system across the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to make it quicker and easier for you to park. The venue user car parks are located moments from the London Aquatics Centre, Copper Box Arena and Here East.
The ANPR cameras will record your vehicle upon entry and exit to make sure that you only pay for the time you stay with us. There is no need to display a ticket as your parking session is registered against your vehicle registration plate. Before leaving the venue car park, you will need to visit a pay machine - simply pop in your vehicle registration and the system will automatically calculate the fee to pay.
Once you arrive at the exit barrier, the system will check to see if your vehicle is registered as having paid the correct fee and that you are entitled to leave. Once confirmed, the barrier will automatically lift and allow your vehicle to exit.
