If you don't already have a portal in your world build one in creative.

survival: find the end portal in your world and fill in the ender eyes

creative: find end portal frame in the block menu stand on the ground and place it all around you

There is a Minecraft wiki you can get to online. Search for "The End" on it and it will provide you with direction on how to get to the end.

Two ways to do it.

1. You need to locate the end portal in a strong hold first. this can be done by throwing eyes of ender which will eventually get you to the general location of a stronghold, then dig straight down to find the stronghold, you may have to run around it a bit to find the end portal. Then stick eyes of ender in the missing parts of the portal.

2. You can also build an end portal by making a 3x3 area of lava then surround that with the ender pedestal things and stick eyes of ender in there. I think this wiki page discusses how you can build your own. Hope this helps. When building the portal if you look at it from the ground horizontally I believe there is a space between the portal and lava so horizontal it looks like this:

P
S
G

Portal, Space, Ground

The reason it works when you build it around you is because the portal blocks actually have a front side, despite having no visual markers. The portal will only open when you place the last Eye of Ender into a portal block with the front side facing the inside of the portal, which is the direction every block will face if you build it from the inside like that.
