Swimming stars at the London Aquatics Centre
While the centre is a must-visit for all swimming fans, it is also a treat for its striking and unique architecture: the building was designed by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid and among its eye-catching features is a unique wave-shaped roof that reflects the water-based action that takes place inside. Based in Stratford, on the east side of the city, the centre sits on the opposite bank of the Waterworks River to the London Stadium, making it an area of London that has become synonymous with sporting excellence. For 2012, additional wings were added to the Centre to accommodate for the thousands of spectators who came to the capital, however, the capacity of the venue was decreased from 17,500 to 2,500, making it an intimate yet intense sporting arena equipped with the very best facilities that swimmers of all levels could ask for.

Swimming, diving and so much more
The centre first opened to the public in 2014, making it an instant favourite with locals for its state-of-the-art facilities. It boasts two 50-metre swimming pools, a 25-metre diving board and a number of gyms and fitness centres. Since 2012, the centre has been chosen to host a number of top events, ranging from Sport Relief with the BBC to the British Swimming Championships and the Invictus Games. Its fantastic resources mean it continues to be used by elite athletes, including gold medallists such as swimmer Aimee Willmott and diver Tom Daley. The centre can easily be accessed by public transport, with many bus stops nearby and the Stratford underground station just a ten-minute walk away, or by bicycle, using the various cycle lanes and bike rental services on offer across London. Since its establishment in 2012, the centre has become the place to witness exciting, elite-level swimming in the British capital.
