About the event..

The FINA Diving World Series is a prestigious and exclusive event hosting Olympic, World and European champions from both Great Britain and across the world. The event will take place across three days of exciting action in the iconic London Aquatics Centre.

The event returns to London for the first time in four years, with a 10-strong British team competing in the final major international competition prior to the World Championships in July.

See world champion Tom Daley and Olympic champion Jack Laugher to name a few of the top divers that will be competing in the final leg of the series.

Travelling to the venue for the event...

Public transport is the best and easiest way to get to and from the Park, either by train, underground, bus or cycle.

  • The nearest underground stations are Stratford (10-minute walk) and Hackney Wick (15-minute walk)
  • There are more than 140 cycle racks outside the London Aquatics Centre, including a Santander Cycles docking station located outside the centre.
  • Stratford International station is just a 5-minute walk away
  • St Pancras International & Kings Cross stations are just seven minutes away by train to Stratford International
  • The M25 is only a 25 minutes drive away. There are 111 Pay & Display car parking spaces located next to the London Aquatics Centre. Otherwise, there is plenty of parking available at nearby Westfield.

The car park at London Aquatics Centre will be available, but spaces will be limited and we recommend both using public transport over the weekend and leaving extra time to get to the centre.
