Venue Hire

Located in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the London Aquatics Centre is one of London’s most iconic venues.  

Designed by architect Zaha Hadid, the award-winning London Aquatics Centre provided the breath-taking backdrop to countless world records and Ellie Simmonds’ dramatic swim into the history books during London 2012.

Today, the London Aquatics Centre is open to the public and is a unique venue for corporate events, meetings, photoshoots and filming.

Within the London Aquatics Centre, there is a meeting space that can hold up to 30 people. There is also seating for up-to 2,800 spectators around the competition pool.

Other options include the space pool-side next to the Competition Pool, Training Pool and Diving Pool, and even on top of the pool, as the floor can be raised.

The London Aquatics Centre has all the support facilities you would expect from a world-class venue. There are preparation and fully-equipped changing areas, a modern timing system, scoreboard, free Wi-fi and all the production and rigging systems you need to make any event a success.
