Prayer Facilities

While finding prayer facilities at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will not be possible, Muslim tourists will be able to offer their prayers outdoors since there will be plenty of secluded areas within the attraction. They could also make use of the facilities offered at one of the many mosques found across London, such as the East London Mosque, London Central Mosque or Fazl Mosque, to name a few.

Halal Food

As mentioned above, those visiting the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will find a variety of fantastic restaurants and cafés, such as the Timber Lodge Café and the EastTwenty Bar & Kitchen. Muslim visitors may however not be able to find any that serve Halal dishes. They will therefore have to dine on suitable seafood or vegetarian dishes, or they can visit one of the several Halal restaurants in London.
