London's Olympic Sites

A fascinating tour around London's historic port combining an appreciation of the past with exciting visions of the future. 

We will pass through the economic miracle that has already witnessed the transformation of the Isle of Dogs into the new business district of Canary Wharf.  Enjoy views across the River Thames to Greenwich (venue for Equestrian Events and Modern Pentathlon), the David Beckham Football Academy and the re-launched Millennium Dome, now known as the O2  (venue for basketball and gymnastics). 

Reflect on the change in use of the enormous Royal Docks, viewed from different perspectives, with a chance to cross the Victoria Dock footbridge to ExCel, where weightlifting, table tennis, boxing, judo, wrestling and taekwondo will be staged.  

Tours can be extended to include Stratford and Lea Valley, where an Olympic Park 3 times the size of Hyde Park is now under development, site of the Main Stadium, Aquatics Centre and Olympic Village. The vital legacy of the games will also be assessed, post 2012.
