The facility has 1,000 premium club seats as well as 38 private luxury suites, 5 Group Sales Suites and is the largest arena in South Western Ontario. The venue not only strives to meet the needs of the community through diverse programming, it also stands as a landmark of civic pride and community accessibility, promoting a sense of vibrancy and culture while also providing a wide range of public sports and entertainment.
Its design reflects many of the features found in larger facilities and has been designed to exceed the Ontario Building Code requirements for accessibility. The facility more closely meets ADA requirements. There is accessible seating on every level. The facility exceeds the Ontario Building Code requirements for washrooms by approximately 55%.
Constructed in the heart of downtown London, the exterior design of Budweiser Gardens incorporates a replica of the facade of the old Talbot Inn, a 19th Century Inn originally located where the building now stands with that of a "state of the art" entertainment and sports facility.
With a reputation and standard of excellence in the industry, Budweiser Gardens is a top stop for fans and performers alike. Budweiser Gardens is the home of a junior "A" hockey team, the London Knights.
