This has probably been asked before, but are the grounds open to the public daily? I'm visiting London next week and would like to check out the buildings.

What's the best vantage point to see the grounds then? I've heard the Westfield Stratford City Shopping Centre has some decent views.

No it's not, its size is more than acceptable. The initial design was outstanding but way too expensive, I don't think the new design is ugly at all, it's simple & quite nice looking imo, but most importantly, there will be an appreciable closeness between the sportsmen & the crowd.

It does. You get some good views on the Overground heading East into Stratford too.
