The tour starts at Bromley by Bow underground station and finishes at Pudding Mill Lane station on the DLR. The route taken is mainly off the road, much of it along a tow path in the former industrial Lower Lea valley. Your guide will then lead you to a footpath which goes alongside the Olympic park perimeter fence. From here there are excellent views of the Olympic stadium and other 2012 constructions such as the Aquatics Centre and The Orbit. (Please note that members of the public are not allowed access to the Olympic Park).
You will hear the latest on the athletes and the venues, but crucial to London’s successful 2005 bid for the games was the legacy, so you will also learn about the plans for the future of the site and the venues after 2012. This is a massive project, reclaiming 2.5 sq. kilometres of contaminated land and transforming it into a place where people will want to visit and live. Construction in the Olympic Park has entered the final stages with many venues nearing completion and landscaping is well underway. Now is the time to see it... and bring your camera!
