Olympic Village

Nearly 17.000 athletes and officials will have the luxury of walking to their events from the Olympic Village, located in the East of the Olympic Park, which is close to Stratford International Station. The Olympic Village for the coming Games in London will have 3.300 apartments and a total of 17.320 beds. The Village includes shops, restaurants and medical, media and leisure facilities, while a dining hall will cater for 5.500 athletes at a time. The high speed Javelin shuttle service can whisk the athletes into central London in only 7 minutes. 

After the Games, the Olympic Village will be transformed into 2.800 homes. New parks, transport links and community facilities, including a new educational campus (Clobham Academy) with 1.800 places for students aged 3-19, will also be opened.
