Just a stones throw away from the slick and modern Olympic Park, Victoria Park's vast open spaces, bustling cafes and shimmering lake have been around since 1845, making it the capital's oldest public park.

Victoria Park, Grove Road, London, E3 5TB, United Kingdom

FAQs

BY PLANE: Any of the major London airports provide easy transfers into the city itself, where you can then travel onto Victoria Park via public transport.
