Among the many advantages of the Lion & Key’s location is that it’s only a few minutes’ walk from the Matchroom Stadium in Brisbane Road, home of Leyton Orient Football Club. This has become even more of a benefit to our customers, as we’re now making an amazing offer of free tickets to see the O’s with advance bookings.
Leyton Orient may not be as prestigious today as Chelsea, Spurs or Arsenal, but they’re actually the second-oldest league club in London (only Fulham were around earlier) and they have a long and sometimes illustrious history. Founded in 1881, they’ve gone through a series of name-changes. Besides Leyton Orient, they’ve also been Clapton Orient, or sometimes just Orient.
Since 1937, Leyton Orient have played at the Brisbane Road ground, now known for sponsorship reasons as the Matchroom Stadium. This is a 9,271 all-seater stadium, which includes a recently built North Stand which the club has reserved specifically for families, offering a safe and friendly environment to watch the game.
The O’s play currently in National League, but although their matches don’t get the media attention of the big clubs, the league is just as fiercely contested as any. You’re sure to see an entertaining game at Brisbane Road
The Perfect Location
Whether you’re a home fan who lives a distance away, a visiting fan travelling to a match, or just a football lover taking the opportunity to catch a game while you’re in Leyton, the Lion & Key couldn’t be more convenient for the ground. A few minutes’ stroll from the hotel down Leyton High Road, turn into Windsor Road, and no more than 100m later you’re in Brisbane Road. It’s as simple as that.
And it’s even better when the match is over. Instead of queuing up at the station to get onto the platform, or sitting in traffic jams if you’ve been lucky enough to find a nearby parking space on match day, you can stroll at your leisure back to the hotel and either celebrate or commiserate about the game in the Lion & Key’s comfortable bar — where home and away fans are equally welcome. What more can you want?
